Good Night, Sweetheart

It started with Natalie and has continued with Charlotte.

While cuddling in the glider, I sing ... 
You are my sunshine.  My only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

Just before I put my baby girl in the crib for the night, 
I sing this verse of a song that was before my time ... 
Goodnight, sweetheart
Well. it's time to go
Goodnight, sweetheart
Well, it's time to go
I hate to leave you, but I really must say
Goodnight, sweetheart, goodnight

(here is a really cool YouTube version)

and then I sing,

I love you, Charlotte
Oh, yes I do.
I love you, Charlotte
And I'll be true.
When you're not with me,
I'm blue.
Oh, Charlotte, I love you.

I really, really wish these three songs produced
the same kind of sleep from Charlotte as they did from Natalie.
No such luck at this point.

For your viewing pleasure, my girls asleep ... in the car seat ...

I sing You Are My Sunshine to my kiddos too. Love it!

Peach's favorite is "Take Me Out to the Ball Game", however. It was the song Stink requested every night she was in-utero and...well, it stuck. It is the one song that can knock her out in seconds flat.

Sweet pics of your babies...
