m and i were very excited when i went to pick up what turned out to be d's package on tuesday. we opened it. inside was a brown paper bag with some tissue paper in it. and wrapped up in the tissue paper was...
a bear? look at that little face! no bear that! classic? that i will give you. but bear? no! i mean, he has opposable thumbs!
we called d and asked him if perhaps someone was playing some sort of bizarre joke on him. he said no and insisted that he had sent us a bear! we debated this to much delight, and he finally capitulated when i sent him photos. in honour of his auspicious beginnings with our family, we have named the monkey "teddy."
below is a photo of me with teddy, who is wearing the lovely egyptian cotton sleep sack that d also sent in his package. we are practicing the mama-and-lemur nfl-watching pose.
