This is the year of Baby.
Most of the babes arriving have been born to my friends, but the latest in the bunch was born to a friend of Regan. Regan and the proud new papa are former college roommates who are now co-workers and frequent Xbox Live players.
In thinking of a “practical” baby gift to make, Regan agreed that this was just the thing.
What’s this, you ask?
A stuffie for play dates with dad.
It’s hardly original, but was definitely a fun object to make on the fly. Regan was more than happy to help with art direction. If he’d had full control it would have come with a battery pack and flashing lights.
Instead, August only got a plush version of the Xbox game controller.
Even though it’s squishy and soft, it’s not nearly as cuddly as August. That wee babe is the stuff.
