If you're a watcher, you might remember a photo of my 2 favorite teddy bears. I got the first one when I was 3 and the second when I was 7. Named them both Tippy. (Again, I was 3-years-old.) I still have them, though I've had to replace their overalls. FYI, if you buy replacement clothes for stuffed animals at Build-A-Bear Workshop, measure the animal first.
Today my mom went to Goodwill and came back with a new teddy bear for me, Tippy the 3rd! She's really soft, and the paint on her eyes hasn't rubbed off. It was really cool of Mom to get her.
