{Paddington - Love}

Awww....Today is marks the 50th birthday of Paddington Bear!! To some, this may be sweet; to others it makes no impact; to me, however, it is truly wonderful and even makes my heart smile.

I've even begun "hunting" for Paddington Bear treasures for our little boy's nursery. {Hold on...settle down...I'm not preggo yet!} :) Jack Riley of The Independant, UK says...

"...The first Paddington story, entitled A Bear Called Paddington was released on 13 October 1958. The book described the bear's first year in Britain, from his discovery at Paddington station by his owners Mr and Mrs Brown, through the trauma of his first experience of bathing, and concluded with the anniversary of his fortuitous discovery."

Naphtali....this is so funny, because it is one of the first things I remembered about meeting you. Oh reminiscing about telling you my dislike for kids, and you confessing about your obsession over Paddington and wanting a truck load of babies! :) I love how time not only changes things but keeps some things entirely the same! He is pure love, good luck on the hung for all this PB for your future nursery.

Oh, I ADORE Paddington too!
He conjures up so many happy childhood memories. I was so sad to find out that Epcot's England no longer carries their huge selection of Paddington gear! I was hoping to snatch up a bundle the last time I was there. Boo hoo!
