I had a plan that to help get rid of our pacifiers a few months ago, I'd get the boys attached to something that was a little easier to grow with. We had 2 stuffed animals that were just the right size. Julian got puppy, Isaiah got bear.
They've been through a lot in the past few months. Bear's mouth isn't really the same color anymore because Isaiah likes to chew on it. Last week I added some stuffing and sewed shut some holes. Puppy doesn't have eyes anymore (they used to be plastic) because Julian had a habit of chewing on them. He's also pretty matted and nappy. But we love them just the way they are.
Here's to lifelong friends.
