Yesterday, Emerson decided to take her new baby Dumbo to school for Show-and-Tell. She got this Dumbo on the last day of our Disney trip at Animal Kingdom. Who wouldn't be able to resist this face and those ears and even the baby swaddle? Too cute!!! Even though Emerson hasn't seen the Dumbo movie, she fell in love. It's also pretty special to both of us because one of the lullabies I sang to Emerson as a baby, and even sometimes now, was "Baby Mine" from the Dumbo movie. It's one of my all-time favorite lullabies. I included videos below so you could see just how great it is!!
