Build-A-Bear!

Sorry I haven't been posting recently like I had hoped. I have just been exhausted and swamped! We only have 3 days to go until our new daughter arrives! That makes for a very excited and nervous household! Mady has been begging to go to Build-A-Bear Workshop to make an animal for her baby sister. We finally took them last week and together they made a limited edition Valentine's Day dog to bring to her in the hospital. They were both so excited and haven't taken it out of the box. It's in there waiting until Thursday!

Here's Mady picking out the dog:


Here's Leighton being his reserved self! Had to make sure it was okay before he went with the lady to stuff the dog:


Here they are getting the dog stuffed:


Hugging the dog to make sure it was fluffy enough:


Getting hearts for the dog (ours has 2 because they each put one in):



Rubbing the hearts on their heads to make the dog smart:


Rubbing the heart on her heart to fill the dog with love:


Giving the dog a bath:


Naming the dog and getting a birth certificate:


And finally, bringing the dog home:


Soon I will be posting a link to my all new website!!! Not to mention picture of our new baby girl!

Oh my gosh they're getting so big! Leighton has really thinned out - he was a big chunk of a baby last time I saw him! Can't wait to see you next week!

Oh my gosh, that is the sweetest thing ever. You must be so happy to have captured it all. Just imagine in a few years showing your toddler the pictures from today and telling her all about it. Best wishes for a smooth delivery!

I LOVE Build a Bear! Andrew has an Elvis teddy we bought him in Vegas and now, we need to get one for Nate. I just bought a Bronco outfit for Andrew's bear, so maybe I'll have to take a pic of it...it's got such great detailing. Anwyay...congrats on your new girl, looking forward to meeting her soon.
