this is teddy. when my mother was young, teddy kept her company. when i was young, she played with me. she enjoyed borrowing my old dresses, one of which she still likes to wear. ever since she lost her mouth, teddy doesn't say much. she never stopped giving great hugs.
and she always looks up at me when i talk to her.
teddy is totally bald except for a few patches of fur, the largest of which is located on her upper left leg. her back has been stitched to hold in what's left of her stuffing. some bears might find this photo shocking, but teddy loves her body. she is not modest.
teddy wanted to appear on my blog ever since she saw shula's teddy.
there are few things as endearing as a well-loved stuffie.
