Lullabies of Love..

I interrupt your regular scheduled blog post release for this important message..................

I love singing!

What is that you say?  You ALREADY knew that?!!?  You feel like I have told you a bazillion times before?!?!?  Oh that's right...I told you here.

I credit my parents for my love of music.  My mom used to sing with us all the time....random songs.  How many kids know the theme song to "Beverly Hillbillies".....Let me tell you a story of a man named Jed.......

My dad loved to dance with us.  I have fond memories of listening to records (YES I AM OLD) and dancing with my dad.  My father....also famous for substituting his own words into the songs!  The most comical... Heart's song "Alone"...He sang "How do I get you alone" and then proceeded to say "You go to the bank".....get it?  Alone....a loan.....Yes that's my dad =)

It's really important for me to pass this love onto Sweet Pea. 

I decided to start now....I read recently that Sweet Pea can start to hear my voice.  There was even a suggestion to start singing.....It has been proven that babies will recognize certain songs that their heard in their womb....

* CUE MUSICWHERE is my microphone!?!?

I have always related Michael Buble's Just Haven't Met You Yet to my journey for Sweet Pea. That song has surrounded my life...It's even the ringtone on my phone!  The song will always be dear to my heart....

But I need new songs....

As much as I LOVED Ross and Rachel's rendition of Baby Got Back on Friends. I figured I needed some new tunes.  Ideally Rumpshaker or Rehab aren't the BEST choice of lullabies.  So I set out on a mission. Find songs for Sweet Pea to listen to in the womb and that I could sing when they are born. 

It was difficult finding good songs....so I of course asked Dr. Google.  The first one that came up....I downloaded......

.....Baby Mine!  Tears rolled down my cheeks as I listened to the words and pictured swaying my sweet baby to sleep singing those words.  I'm not sure how long it will take for me to be able to sing that without crying....It might sound like a squeaking sound at first.  I better start practicing now. 

I also asked on Twitter.  Someone suggested A New Day Has Come by Celine Dion.  I have heard this song a billion times before...I did not know that it was about her overcoming infertility.  So for the first time today I LISTENED to it.  *INSERT SOBBING*  Full body sobbing...all started with the lyric....


And the world thought I had it all  But I was waiting for you

(by the way...I'm crying again now!)

It's perfect!  I have received some great suggestions...

What are your favorite songs about a baby or about having a baby?  Don't worry I can handle it...I got the tissues ready!
