Mother's Day and the Song We Wrote

IMG_6967Mother'sDay2015
I've been wanting to share this song for some time now and thought it'd go along well with this little Mother's Day post... I wrote the lyrics below quite awhile ago when Charlton was a newborn baby, and my little sister, Lissie, wrote the gorgeous music and is the beautiful vocals you hear singing--some day I want a video of her singing it! I can't thank her enough for doing this for me!! My brother Christian also helped write the guitar parts. They are so talented and I am forever thankful for this gift. I absolutely love the way it turned out and will treasure it always... (I'll have to come back and insert the music... can't seem to figure out how to get it working here, bummer.)


Darling Baby

Tiny hands at home, around my finger
Softest cheeks like heaven to my lips
A crown of fluff on your sweet head
Big, bright eyes so pure and fresh

And it’s unbelievable that you’re mine
Darling baby, you’re divine
Sunshine, I love you to the moon
These days will be sweet memories soon

Sleep on me, I love you like no other
You are here, and lighting up my world
Call me mommy, mama or mother
I feel unworthy, noble, whole

And it’s unbelievable that you’re mine
Darling baby, you’re divine
Sunshine, I love you to the moon
These days will be sweet memories soon

And it’s fading, you’re growing
I can’t stop it; it’s not slowing
Cherished diaries, photographs, thankful for a glimmer

And I reach you
Live for you
Refusing to forget

My little baby, adorable, lovable… 
Oh, my angel
Oh, I love you to the moon

Hello, my love, do you know who you are?
See your image there before the mirror
Just met, and yet you’re familiar
Yesterday, today, forever

And it’s unbelievable that you’re mine
Darling baby, you’re divine
Sunshine, I love you to the moon
These days will be sweet memories soon

And it’s unbelievable that you’re mine
Darling baby, you’re divine
Sunshine, I love you to the moon
These days will be sweet memories soon

Oh, I love you to the moon...

Also, as usual, I had Will take some pictures of me with the kids on Mother's Day. Gah, I love these children of mine! So thankful to be their mom!

^^I love all the mother's in my life so much! It is no wonder that Will is such a good man--he has such a wonderful mom and grandma who we all love dearly! And words can't express how grateful I am to my own mom, who sadly isn't pictured here. I never get to spend Mother's Day with her anymore since she is so far away in Germany, but she continues to be the most amazing mom in the world and the perfect mom for me. I love you, Mom!
