A very nice older lady who lives two doors down gave the BabyGirl a bag full of beanie babies. Apparently this lady was quite the beanie baby collector at one point, because she she said that she had already gotten rid of "most of them" before she remembered the BabyGirl, and was sad that she was only able to give us "the few that were left." We recently had instituted a strict NO MORE STUFFED ANIMALS policy, but who can say no to a nice old lady? Additionally, the BabyGirl loves them, so i think we'll be keeping up with them for a while. Thanks, friendly neighbor!
