Hello, I’m Sara Hickman, and thank you for listening to my songs, and watching the gentle animation we created especially for you and your baby. As a mom, I know having a new baby is like no other experience. It’s a miracle. I used to ask my babies, “Where did you come from?” I will never understand how I got so lucky to have such beautiful beings in my world, and I bet you feel that way, too. So, I wanted to share some simple feedback with you on my experiences, to help you have an amazing life with your child, too. Enjoy every minute!
Winner of the 2010 Dr. Toy Best Vacation Children’s Products Award!
