This is Bela. He is plum tuckered out and needs his rest. He’s tired because he’s been playing with his teddy bear all afternoon!

This is Bela’s Teddy Bear. Clearly, he’s seen better days. You know the story of the Velveteen Rabbit? Bela loves this teddy so much that it would not surprise me if he woke up one morning and simply walked away!

Bela carries little Teddy all around the house and even takes him to bed on occassion. He drops the bear in corners and howls at it and he makes odd “rowr!” noises while carrying this little guy around in his mouth! It’s ridiculously cute.
