Clara's birthday festivities kicked off with a special trip to the mall with her Aunt Johnna (and mama, Sweet Mama, and Ms Phyllis too!) for her first Build-A-Bear experience. She wasn't quite sure at first about what she was supposed to be doing, but eventually settled on a lamb who came to be named "Fluffy." We got him stuffed and an "I love you" noise inserted in his paw and thus began the process of trying to choose an outfit.
Four adults, one almost three year old, lots of laughter, and every single outfit possibility in the store later, Clara insisted that Fluffy did not want to wear clothes. Her favorite part of the whole store was the bath, so he got "cleaned" approximately 72 times before he came home.
It was a super fun evening and Fluffy has gotten lots of love since we brought him home. Here's just a few cell phone photos of the night!
