hush lil' baby

There are times where only my voice, my touch or my songs will calm her.
Those are the moments I never want my heart to forget.



Hush, little baby, don't say a word.
Mama's gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won't sing,
Mama's gonna buy you a diamond ring

and if that diamond ring don't shine, you'll still be the cutest little baby of mine...

Lovely. I sung that song to Luke from the first moment he was home from the hospital (I was so tired that it was the only song I could remember), and I still sing it to him now.

You all are going to kill me with all your beautiful photos, babies and slings!

I need all three in my future very soon!

Sometimes a baby just needs her Momma!

Such precious moments...

You were meant to be a babywearer! The two of you are so precious!

beautiful...

I sing that song to the gremlin every night as he falls asleep. It's our own special moments that we steal away from the world.

Only, my songs a little different, since the words get a little fuzzy after that part about the diamond ring not shining. Let's just say in my version, mama buys things like clementines and pens for school and a big red kite.
