Bunnies, Books & Baby Borrowing

Remember Belly McGee and Bunny?  Well, as of January 3rd, Bunny is here! And her real name is Reagan.

I couldn't allow ReRe to start life without a bunny of her own to play with, so I made her one at my mom's house over Christmas.

It even included a quick embroidery lesson from Mom.

On a side note, it was hard for me to get the tension correct on her sewing machine, so Bunny's stitches may be weak.  I told ReRe that Bunny comes with a lifetime of free plastic surgery and botox.  Then I told Mommy Already-Back-In-Her-Normal-Sized-Jeans, that any therapy costs associated with Bunny's head falling off are not my responsibility. Sorry.

But, before Bunny came back to Arizona with me, she went on a full adventure in Luverne, MN that I documented for a book.

My mom held Bunny in random poses all over town. Inevitably, we ran into someone she knew at most of those places.  Slightly embarrassing for her, especially when the establishment was busy like the Coffee Haus.  If this project were mac & cheese, she would obviously be the formaggio holding it all together.

So then I photoshopped her out of all the pictures. Sorry mom.

Bunny coincidentally had many of the same experiences as ReRe's mommy, Leah Shaped-Up-Quicker-Post-Baby-Than-Posh-Spice.

And a few random experiences to keep it interesting.

With the help of some family and friends.

 Even friends that didn't know they were helping.

You can read it for yourself here.

After I dropped off Bunny, and Leah was busy reading about her adventure, I tried to sneak ReRe home with me. Bunny stopped me cold in my tracks.

"Listen Bunns, I was just going to borrow her for a little bit."

It seems that Bunny is already very comfortable in her new role.
