The boys are really excited about their baby sister. I thought that making her a stuffed animal from Build-A-Bear might give them something tangible that they could DO for her and be fun for them as well. We had never done this before. They really loved it. I think it made them feel like they were doing something special for her and they can tell her they made it for her while we were waiting to bring her home.
They chose a puppy dog. They helped stuff it.
Then she put a beating heart in the puppy. (this is some high tech stuff folks)
The boys gave it a "bath".
We picked out a pink tutu and some pink hairbows for its ears and called it a day. Somewhere in the middle of all the fun, Judah decided to cop a bad attitude, hence the not smiling. Oh well, this is real life people.
