I was so excited that BLT was finally old enough to enjoy Build-A-Bear. We were at the mall when they opened on Saturday so we went over to check it out. BLT picked out a cow. Well, he also picked out a dog, then the cow, then a dog... we already have a stuffed dog, so we went with the cow. Then we picked out a cow sound box to stuff in the foot. The next step in the Build-A-Bear process is the "stuff-me" station. They stick the floppy animal onto a nozzle and you step on a pedal and the stuffing is blasted in to the animal. Okay. This was a bad moment. Poor BLT. He was terrified for his cow. He cried and cried. As soon as he was stuffed, he gave the cow a big hug. He barely loosened his grip enough to get the cow stiched up (they just pull the laces tight and cut the end off). We then picked a name out for the cow - "Moo." Not so original, perhaps, but BLT doesn't mind! Moo even got a free guitar on our way out - just like Daddy!
Moo and BLT are already fast friends. Here is BLT and Moo reading with Daddy. He brought Moo in to our room this morning and I could hear him moo'ing all the way over from his room!
Oh, and something funny - BLT is really into beards right now. He has the Little Golden Book Bible from Great-Grandma and he loves to look at the beards in there! Then we stroke our chins and he says "beer."
