Hey You –
Just a heads up. Music will be a big part of your life. Mommy and Daddy love listening to music and Papi is all about in wall speakers and playing the piano. We are going to start you early with good sounds so we don’t have to listen to Raffi non-stop. Here is a starter playlist for you:
Adele – Make You Feel My Love: Start things off with Mommy & Daddy’s first dance song
Hamilton: Wait For It: Kicking off the Mommy section with her favorite song from her favorite play that she didn’t even know she loved
