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.

    That is so great – I laughed out loud! I’ll bet Jack would like one, too…

    That’s totally reeking of awesome!
    If you’d ever feel like doing a plushy PlayStation Controller, I’d be more than happy to buy one from you. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thanks, Marcel! My husband has definitely tried to sway me to do a PlayStation Controller, too. I’ll let you know if I ever figure it out ๐Ÿ™‚
