Baby Song…finally!!

Monday, November 29th, 2010

I was wondering when it would happen. I got concerned that it never would. Then, after just putting her to sleep on Saturday night, it finally happened: a song about my little baby girl Abbey. It’s still under construction but here are the lyrics thus far. Stay tuned for the final product!

“A Little Closer”

You need me and how I needed you
You feed me as much as I am feeding you

Now everyday you get a little closer on your way….hey
Yeah everyday we are a little closer on our way

When you cry, I can think of nothing worse
When you smile, well I can see the universe

Now everyday you get a little closer on your way….hey
Yeah everyday we are a little closer on our way

First some laughter, then you roll on your side
What comes after, only you decide
Should your turn create a tailspin
We’ll be there to turn your right again

Now everyday you get a little closer on your way….hey
Yeah everyday we are a little closer on our way

Babies

Monday, July 19th, 2010

A week ago today, I had a baby. Well…Annie had the baby but I was there and my life was changed as well. Abbey has joined us and she is a beautiful pleasure and my all time favorite kid / person / everything. My favorite times are the early am hours when I get to sit and hold / feed her and sing to her. It is bringing songs back to life for me that I have not sung in awhile. I keep singing Cat Stevens, Harry Chapin and James Taylor. Anyone who knows me would think that Beatlemania would be going on in my babies bedroom but so far, I have kept the fabs at a minimum. I suppose I am introducing them selectively…like fine wine. I have also not sung any Hillary Step to her yet. I don’t know why. I am nervous to for some silly reason.

All in good time.
