Baby of Mine..

Every mother has one.. you know, that song you sing your children. The same one you find yourself humming for years. The one song that can squelch their fear within a matter of minutes. For all of my babies it has been Baby Mine. I found myself humming it when I was only a few months pregnant with Morgan, and I don't think I've ever stopped.. It's just one of those special songs that I share with each of them.. 

So, today, when we were reading our school book and we came across the sentence "so he sang them a lullaby he'd heard long ago about moonbeams...." it reminded me, once again, of the song I spent many sleepless nights singing. The same song I spent many pregnant months singing. The same song I sang to some sleepy toddlers while sharing Eskimo kisses with them.

The moment I pulled up a music video with the song in it, the boys came running. Oddly enough, Jayden, who moments before had been bouncing off the wall, sat calmly in my lap and made me play it twice and sing it a handful of times as well.

After we finally stopped all of our singing the boys wrote some lullabies for a dog, a cat, and a bird. This was just a simple exercise that they thought was very fun. Morgan's were cute and represented each animal. For example, he sang about a bone to the dog. Jayden's, however were all about the same: "I love you, I love you, I really love you. Don't be afraid, I'm right here with you..." 

So, without further ado, here's {our} song:
