A New Friend! ๐Ÿงธ

A package from The Toy Shoppe came yesterday with a lovely new member for my hug! He was an early birthday gift from my friend Nero. Hardy, a new friend, also very kindly helped me to get him. His Charlie Bear name is Waffle, I always rename my bears though, and I donโ€™t have a name for him just yet. But he IS lovely! And has a hint of an adorable smile, along with a very unique fur pattern.

What he reminds me most of is banana nut bread, which I suppose is not the strangest name when I have a Charlie Bear cat named Fish โ€˜n Chips, but somehow itโ€™s not convincing me.

I have him wearing this as a temporary outfit:

He can wear Build-a-Bear tops quite well, but heโ€™s kinda bulky bottom-wise so heโ€™s wearing newborn size shorts. I did get him a pair of overalls with a rewards card I had for BAB, because nothing looks as good on bears as overalls/dungarees. And I got him a little hat and bandana on AliExpress, as well as a pacifier Iโ€™ll customize with a brooch pin so he can wear it. Once I decide on a name Iโ€™ll decorate the pacifier to match. Canโ€™t resist teddies with pacis.

He got to sleep with me last night, which I NEVER do for these expensive bears, but I needed the comfort.

So anyway the last few days have been work work work, nonstop, so Iโ€™m busy and tired and my arm/wrist are killing me. So Iโ€™ll end this post here. I hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Oh and please guys. Even if the economy is reopening please keep in mind COVID-19 CASES ARE UP. THEY ARE WORSE NOW THAN BEFORE. You are in danger still, donโ€™t go out unnecessarily, wear your masks, if you must go out for work or whatever protect yourselves, even if people laugh at you, please remember itโ€™s actually worse now. I donโ€™t want you all to get sick or die or sicken family members and feel that guilt. Please, be careful.
