Then when I wrote my last blog post about Teddy it was in June of 2008. Here is what Teddy looked like then.
Lately Jonah has been begging me to put some more stuffing in Teddy. Apparently Teddy was getting a bit too flopsy for Jonah. I can't say that his assessment was wrong. Here is a picture I took of Teddy the weekend before his minor surgery.
So I finally picked up some batting so that poor Teddy could sit and stand up again. Jonah was really excited that I was going to make Teddy less floppy and more fat. He watched as I carefully opened up the seam in Teddy's back. Then he even helped me stuff in as much stuffing as we possibly could. Then I sewed Teddy back up.
Here is Teddy post-op.
Jonah is really impressed with all the things that Teddy can do now! Teddy can sit up by himself. Teddy can stand on his head! Teddy is much more huggable! Jonah LOVES that Teddy is no longer squished flat.
I am glad that I finally got around to Jonah's request. It really made him happy. Jonah made me laugh when he told me that Teddy is no longer bossy now that he is stuffed! How funny is that?
Next Teddy needs to take another spin through the washer. I hope it doesn't compact him too much!
