Introducing Miss Daisy

Isn't she adorable?! 
She's my newest baby.  I created her myself at Build A Bear this weekend.
She looks like a chubby Winnie the Pooh in a bikini.  A tummy like this is so much cuter on a bear than on a mommy.
I've never made a bear for myself until this weekend.  Grandma Susan (my mommy) took both her daughters and all 5 of her grandkids to Build A Bear to celebrate my niece's, Cassidy's, 7th birthday.  We had so much fun!
When asked if I wanted Daisy to be chunky and cuddly or soft and snuggly, it was an easy answer for me - chunky and cuddly!  I'm sure that's what God said when He created me.
I chose not to put a "voice" in my bear.  I'm tired of my kids talking back to me. 
I contemplated recording "You're so beautiful and skinny" to put in my bear and then I remembered how I hate it when my kids lie to me.
So, my bear is chunky and cuddly and doesn't talk back.  If she did talk, she would say "I don't skinny dip, I chunky dunk."

The whole crew

Poor Eli is the only grandson on my side of the family. I don't have any brothers and my sister doesn't have any boys so Eli has had to teach us A LOT about boys. Sometimes we have to let him be a silly boy. This is sooooo Eli!

I did not even recognize Eli! Looks great though! I LOVE that you got a Build-a-bear for yourself! I haven't seen a bear quite as cute in a long time! Wouldn't you like to be able to be so confident in a bikini?
