Most little ones have an object that they covet, love, and will never leave home without. A warm, cuddly lovey. Somthing that doesn't hurt like hell when it is accidently smacked against your upper lip.
Nicholas' constant companion is a regular fixture around this place. Meet Gordon.
Gordon is one of Thomas the tank engine's friends. Nicholas knows the name of most of them, but Gordon is by far his favourite. Gordon was aquired about three months ago at the bottom of a box of train tracks that I picked up at a garage sale. As you can see, he has been well used. Gordon does everything Nicholas does. He is the most well fed and bathed train. EVER.
Here is Gordon playing in the leaves.

Gordon's first time in the snow. It was a bit cold, but we think he enjoyed himself.
Nicholas loves his Gordon Train. You won't get a look this cute if you decide to mess with his cherished toy.
No, he may not be as cuddly as a soft, plush animal, but you can still take him to bed and love him just as much.
