Baby's First Bear

A few weeks after we found out we were pregnant I got this idea that Dirk and I would go make the baby a Build-a-Bear once we found out the gender. We finally did it last night. I thought Dirk was going to think it was totally cheesy but he was a trooper and totally participated (it's amazing what a new daddy will do for his new princess, seriously). My hope is that she will fall in love with the bear and carry it around with her everywhere. I'm thinking it might be a little big for her to really love in the beginning but we'll see.

Here are a couple pictures from our trip.

Dirk filled the bear with stuffing

We both took a heart, held it over our own heart, kissed it and placed it inside the bear. Yeah, I know it's cheesy but they asked us to do it so we did :)

And here's the finished bear

Isn't it cute? I hope she loves it.


  1. OMGoodness, I can't believe Dirk went to Build A Bear. He's already going soft... and it's too sweet. He'll make a great dad.

    P.S. Your skin looks great!

  2. I love it. That's so cute and not at ALL cheesy! I hope she loves it too!

  3. I think this is SO great!! What a lucky little girl she is to have such awesome parents.

    side note- I also love the fact that you're playing classical music for her!! I think that's really important
