A Big Birthday gift for a special friend

My friend had a "Big" birthday and I was planning on attending the surprise event. What to make for someone have that "Big" birthday. She had only 1 daughter who is now grown and married. So, upon looking at several pictures of her daughter in different stages of her life, I constructed the doll to look similar to her. My intent was to capture that love that a mother has for their child and the joy that comes when you look at that child. Here is the result.
Unfortunately, it rained for days and the flooding was really bad. I had to miss the party but sent the doll via mail. She liked it.

How to make a fade

 I'm Maria's grandson and I'm a big boy.
Check out my hair. Since my hair is short and I have a fade hair cut, thought this looked like a thin fade. It doesn't get messed up when I put my cap on either.
