favorites

i'm noticing every day new favorite things that our little bear cub is doing. just when i think he can't get any sweeter, he does something new. one of the best parts of my day is the contented look on his face right after he's eaten - he pulls the cutest faces, and coos in the most adorable way. softly draped over my shoulder - (because he has no doubt fallen asleep while eating) - i like to think he knows he is hugging and snuggling with me. i think my lips have permanently become attached to his perfect cheeks. 


i'm also finding myself singing lullabies i haven't heard for years, and even making up songs of my own. i can't decide if this is cruel, since i'm not known for my stellar singing voice. either way, it's kind of out of my control. i can't help it.

"lullaby"

They didn't have you where I come from
Never knew the best was yet to come

Life began when I saw your face
And I hear your laugh like a serenade

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

I slip in bed when you're asleep
To hold you close and feel your breath on me
Tomorrow there'll be so much to do
So tonight I'll drift in a dream with you

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

As you wander through this troubled world
In search of all things beautiful
You can close your eyes when you're miles away
And hear my voice like a serenade

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up

How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough, is forever enough
How long do you want to be loved
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up
Is forever enough
Cause I'm never, never giving you up
