August 12th, 2009

tn_2009-08-09 Marlowe and Caleb_edited-1 I have been posting a lot lately! I’ve got so many things to share! Today I’ve got two things to share. Caleb, my bear, got some new pants! They’re overalls, and they remind us of trains. I guess they’re not really new—they’re new to us. Mom found them in a toy bag at Savers. Caleb is a wee six inches tall. They don’t make a lot of clothes for bears his size. Well—not a lot of clothes for boy bears his size. Build-a-Bear used to make mini-bear clothes, but they were almost all girl clothes. he’s got a few shirts from some of the less girly outfits. They now make a few little sweaters and the such, but apparently bears that come from Build-a-Bear don’t need to wear pants! So this was a great find! And they fit him, which makes him very happy. (The last pair was kind of tight! He needed to wear a belt to make sure they stayed shut.)

My next thing to share is a beautiful picture of a sunflower that my mom and I took today. tn_2009-08-11 Garden (20)_edited-1The sunflowers are finally all blooming. They are some of my favorite flowers and I am glad when Mom takes me out to the garden to look at them. We don’t really do anything with the sunflowers besides admire them. I’m sure the birds are happy with this decision. They probably enjoy all the sunflower seeds straight from the flower. Mom plants a few different kinds, but there is a whole row of these mammoth sunflowers. Mom likes them because they grow so tall! I like them because they grow so big so fast. We found a life that was bigger then a dinner plate. The stems are thicker then Mom’s fingers—almost thicker then my arm!
