Few things in life are sweeter than the songs you sing to and play for your babies. Oh yes, I have oodles of music that makes me think longingly of my husband but the songs I’ve played for my girl will always hold my heart firmly in their grip. Especially since we’ll bring baby #2 home in a few weeks…it seems like you spend a lot of time singing that first year and I find myself wondering if I’ll use the same songs or if he’ll inspire different tunes.
Not all of these are all love songs. Some of them are pretty nonsensical when you consider them as lullabies, but hey, if it gets the job done and you know all the words, everyone wins.
