I've always had a thing for pandas ever since going to the National Zoo in Washington as a child to see Ling-Ling and Hsing-Hsing, the two giant pandas given to the United States as gifts by China after President Nixon visited in 1972. My parents even decorated my newborn sister's bedroom in pandas when she came along in 1974. So multiple my delight by 12 -- when a dozen giant pandas were born this week in Chengdu, China, at a center that started with just six in 1987 and now has more than 100. There's a video HERE -- they almost don't look real, like Peeps or something. So cute!
