The Story of "Waterlemon" 

"I love designing for babies and their parents.  I am parent of two and have learned so much by testing my own toy and gear ideas with my family.  As a special needs parent I have experienced my children reaching their milestones more slowly and deliberately than others, adding to my understanding of infant and child development.  The name Waterlemon is my children's mispronunciation of the word watermelon.  It reflects the journey of parenthood -- learning to let go of timelines and expectations and to simply enjoy sweet childhood moments, with all their adorable imperfections."
