Build a Bear

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:
 Kaden held onto this stuffed dog while he watched his bear get stuffed:
 Here he is putting not one, but two, hearts into his new friend:

 Giving his bear a bath:
 Helping his bear try on shoes:
 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:

 Giving Grandma a big thank you hug:
