Build-A-Bear

This week Ivy was so excited to receive one more birthday present in the mail. What was inside the card was a mystery to Ivy? A Build-A-Bear gift card meant nothing to her.... until she got a glimpse of it online and then with a little mommy and daddy coaxing we went that evening to experience Build-A-Bear for the first time!

Ivy loved every part of it! At this point we were getting her kitty dressed in the "dressing room" where Ivy even found the perfect pair of matching panties to go with the outfit she had picked. My favorite mommy part was seeing her pick out a heart and "give it a heart beat"--- she was in awe with the magic of it all!

Here she is so proud of her newly created friend.... but we didn't get to escape the store without fully accessorizing the kitty with shoes and bows!

Ivy can't wait to go back.... Mommy and Daddy hope it is with another gift card or a grandparent in tow!! :)
