Two of my best friends had new daughters this month. But I've yet to meet either Stacia or Elana yet, as I can't get past being slightly sick for the past few weeks. This Winnie The Pooh was made for me by my Auntie Jan on the occasion of my birth, some (cough) years ago. It's on indefinite loan to my nephew Kale, and I had a chance to see it again recently. With the exception of a little missing stitching around the face and nose, it's held up remarkably well.
