Before Emma I dreamed. I dreamed of all the little things I would do if I had a little girl. I dreamed of the toys she would have, the way her room would be decorated and the mobiles hanging above her cot. Thanks to my broodiness and barreness I was the best guest at any baby shower as I would buy everything that I dreamed of for my very own baby.
Every baby shower gift included an essential, like nappies, creams or soaps, an item of clothing (or two or three) and an extra special little gift courtesy of Yummi.
Yummi holds a very special place in my heart. After finding out we were pregnant I bought my unborn baby a little welcome into the world gift. The first thing that caught my eye was Ethan the Ellie. It was love at first sight and I knew my baby would love him as much as I did.

Sadly I never got to give my baby the gift, but realizing how incredibly special Ethan was, I passed it onto a friend who was due the same time I would have been. She really didn't want to accept it but when I told her it had been made with love and chosen with love and it was now being passed on with love, she took Ethan in the Ellie in her arms and held him close.
A year or so later when we got the news that Emma was coming home the first thing I did was buy her her very own toy. Walking into our local baby shop my eyes fell on Abbey the Giraffe and I knew immediately that that was THE toy. I didn't even realize it was a Yummi toy, but I knew it was special...
Every baby deserves a gift made by Yummi. Born out of a deep love Sam has for babies and children, each and every Yummi item will hold a place in the heart of the person giving it and the lucky one receiving it. Emma still sleeps with Abbey and spends hours reading to her, making her 'tea' and telling her stories. Abbey has become a part of Emma's life and will hold some wonderful memories for our little girl as she gets older.
What I love about Sam's proudly South African range is that through her passion she has assisted local women in the community to support their families, empowering them and enriching their lives. It's no wonder Yummi products are so beautifully made...
The good news is that Sam has given me a voucher to the value of R300 for one lucky reader.To stand a chance of winning 'like', no, LOVE Yummi's Facebook page and leave a comment here
