I don't think I had any teddy bears when I was a baby. I have to be honest, I have always found this a little odd. Certainly none have ever appeared as I got older from my Mum telling me "oh this was your teddy when you were a baby Jen". My brother on the other hand had a few teddies I recall that he had 'Little Bear' and 'Blue Bear'.
My two boys have so many cuddly toys that there is a bin bag full of some that they don't even have in their in room because there would just be too many! Also because the ones I am keeping out of their everyday reach are ones that they were given as newborns ans a couple were given to me when i was pregnant with each of them. So being that little bit more special, at least I think the sentiment behind them are, I don't want them to get ruined through play and rough and tumble.
The only stuffed toy I had as a baby was a knitted doll. I think my parents had wanted me to call it Susie - they may have christened her that when I would have been too young to talk let alone think up a girls name! Anyway, I only know this doll as Saucy - yes you heard that right Saucy!!
I can only imagine that as with many words I was unable to pronounce as a toddler, Saucy was my way of saying Susie. I know that I would call motorbikes 'tomatobikes' and the reason my Na's were named 'Na' was because my grandparents were meant to be called Nanny and Nana but I drooped the extra 'na'.
I still have my knitted doll, she is at my Mum's house somewhere in her attic she is in prettty good condition from what I remember as I havent seen her for a few years now.
Here is me, my 'Saucy' and my brother. I think I would have been almost 3 years old here
