Javier Doll Sings in Spanish {Giveaway}

When Javier arrived at my door, I was curious to see what my son would do. I pulled this adorable little doll out of the box and Isaiah smirked. He seemed curious,but confused, until I squeezed Javier’s hand and he started singing a familiar song: “Había una vez un barquito chiquitito….” That was all it took for my boy to become a fan of dolls.

Video Interview With Minerva, host of TuBebé on Vme

Bilingual Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen {Giveaway}

It’s so true what they say about second children. They don’t get as much attention as the first one…for obvious reasons. I hate to say it, but it’s happened in our home with my little boy.

In terms of toys, besides the handful of cars and trucks he’s received as gifts, he’s inherited all of his sister’s baby toys. So when Fisher Price came asking if we wereRead More ...
