Baby mine....

When Bella was born I would sing a sweet little song that you may recognize as having been played in the Disney movie, Dumbo, but the version that I love most of it is by Alison Krauss.  Its called "Baby Mine."  Alison Krauss has a sweet soft voice and in the depths of my pregnancy hormone induced drama this song would cause much melodrama and would bring tears to my eyes...

Or so I thought.

And then I was listening to my MP3 player the other day and guess what song came on...and guess what sprung to my eyes.  Apparently it has nothing all all to do with pregnancy or hormones.

I think I just love the song. 

YouTube won't let me embed the video, but here's a link of you want to hear the original...

And in the meantime...My little 2 year old who is no longer considered a baby...is still my baby.

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart,
never to part,
baby of mine



Little one when you play,
don't you mind what they say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
never a tear,
baby of mine



If they knew sweet little you

they'd end up loving you too
All of those same people who scold you
what they'd give just for the right to hold you



If they knew sweet little you

they'd end up loving you too
All of those same people who scold you
what they'd give just for the right to hold you

From your head down to your toes
you're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
Baby of mine



Baby of mine

This post brought tears to my eyes--I've been singing that song to my kids for years, only I never knew there was an Allison Kraus version! (I've been playing/singing Bette Midler's version from the Beaches soundtrack--shows how old I am, lol!) I'm going to go get me a copy of it NOW!

This was a touching tribute to your "baby." A delight to read. Thanks!
