I finished this pillow just in time for my nephew's birthday on Saturday. He is nine years old, for six months he and my son will be the same age. I was hoping he'd like it, and he did. After I finished it, my little 2 year old took it away from from me, threw it on the floor and laid down with her little head on it. I had to get it away from her to wrap it. When N unwrapped it, one of his friends said, dude, your aunt and uncle must really love you a lot. We do. His mom got this pic and sent it to me.
