I think Iâ€™ve told you all about our Build-a-Bear tradition.
But just in case I didnâ€™t and/or you donâ€™t remember, or you are new here (welcome, by the way!) Iâ€™ll fill you in.
We have a tradition of getting a Build-a-Bear for our new babies.
It started when Keith and I got EA and MC each a Build-a-Bear before they came home from the NICU.
Then EA and MC went with us to pick out and dress up a Build-a-Bear for Will before he was born.
Well, we did the same thing for little Miss Jenny.
Will and the girls went with us the weekend before she was born and we picked out a special Build-a-Bear for her.
They each had a part in the process.
Will picked out the bear.
EA helped stuff it.
They all kissed and placed a heart inside the bear before it was stitched up.
MC picked out the bearâ€™s outfit.
We all agreed on the name Sneezy for Jennyâ€™s bear.
Sneezy was actually Jennyâ€™s nickname in-utero before we knew we were having a girl. This nickname was given by my friend, Sidney, in Germany because in the early part of my pregnancy I sneezed ALL. THE. TIME.
They were super excited to present they baby sister with her bear. It was a special time for all of our children.
Jenny was so excited to meet Sneezy, too.
Does you have a tradition for welcoming new babies into your family?
