Kory and I have a lot of nicknames for Kaitlin and for whatever reason, “Baby Bear” is one we call her frequently. Aptly, Kaitlin LOVES her black bear (from the Smokey Mountains of course!) He’s soft, cuddly, & gives great hugs!
"Smokey” the black bear is a great dance partner (right) and even gives great rides around the playroom (left & below)!
I’m not really sure how many black bears there are here in the Ozark Mountains but there is about to be one less in our house!
