Jessica’s Baby Dolls

Thank you to those “elves” who dropped off surprises for Jessica!

She got one princess, which is so perfect for her princess self! She danced and danced with her!

And a baby doll to care for, which almost made her cry because she loved it so much:

Nathan and I gave her (Santa gave her) a make your own headband, and we will play with that tomorrow because she is too busy mothering her new baby dolls!

That meant feeding the baby:

And feeding always means a diaper change:

And after a few inappropriate comments from Nathan, she knew he needed some training. She said, “maybe you can handle a toddler” and gave him the princess doll. She then proceeded to give us very formal lessons in parenting, and we have never laughed so hard:

But “only Grandmas are allowed to hold babies”:

I am so glad Jess is teaching Nathan how to be a good dad (and that he is):

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
