love letters

Dear Em,
One night you were crying about going to sleep & I sang to you & rocked you. I just sing whatever comes to my head. I sing songs that I sang in choir growing up. I sing songs from Disney movies. From time to time I sing songs I can remember from children's shows.

"Skinnamarink e-dink e-dink
Skinnamarink e-doo
I love you.

I love you in the morning
and in the afternoon.
I love you in the evening
underneath the moon.

Skinnamarink e-dink e-dink
Skinnamarink e-doo
I love you."

The first time I sang this, I actually couldn't remember some of the words & just made them up as I went along. Believe it or not, Daddy filled me in with all the words.

It's become a favorite of yours, & some morning we wake up to the sound of you singing it in your crib. You have a different version of the lyrics, "stink-a-rink a stinky stink, stink-a-rink a doo, I love you." It makes me giggle & puts a smile in my heart.

It's so fun to watch you grow with music that Daddy & I grew with. No matter how we sing it, it's true. I love you.

I love you so,
