My first doll when I was little was named Allison. She took many baths with me, and is therefore scary-looking. I bequeathed her to Violet, and she is definitely Violet's ugliest toy. She is also, as it turns out, her favorite toy.
So far, Violet has not insisted on taking Allison in the bath with her, but she does like to brush her hair. Also, the other day, Violet wanted to take Allison when we were leaving the house. The only way I could get her to leave her without a big fuss was to help her tuck Allison in the crib with a blanket and then tip toe out so we didn't "wake her up". I can't believe a one-year-old can have such strong opinions!
