My mom took Kaden to Build a Bear for an early birthday present. I didn't think he would like it nearly as much as he did. He had a great time choosing and creating his new buddy.
They totally spelled his name wrong on his sticker, but he is still so cute in this picture:

He loved the fireman outfit the best. I tried to talk him into the pirate ensemble, but he gave a very adamant, "No!" to that idea.
He is in love with his new friend. The name on its birth certificate? Mommy Bear. I am so proud of Kaden for not showing gender bias. I love that his macho firefighter is a female. Of course, he's been calling all bears Mommy Bear after seeing Pixar's Brave, but still . . .
He pushed this bunny around the store, while Grandma paid for his awesome present:
