  11. Hey Sweetie!!!

    It's so good to hear from you. How are things going. I think about you and keep you in my prayers all the time.

    I remember hearing a lot about Dr. Spock although I've never seen that book. You're right those illustrations would be really cute embroidered. I love your collection of teddies. I especially like the big white one.

    Have the best week darlin'.
    Love and hugs...Tracy :)
