“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”
~A.A. Milne, from "Winnie the Pooh"

A Music Addict/ Songs For My Babies

Hello. My name is Heidi and I am addicted to...music. :)
It makes no difference to me what genre a song is considered as long as the lyrics speak to me. Quite frankly, I could probably never choose just one type of music and if I was only allowed one genre for the rest of my life, I'd probably lay down and die.
Music is a funny thing. Certain songs remind me of certain people, certain places, certain times in my life. It's a language I speak fluently.
Each of my children have a song that I can't hear without thinking of them (Caleb has a whole lot of them because he, like me, is a music junkie too!)

With my firstborn daughter it was this:

I can clearly remember the first time I heard this song. Sitting in my car, alone, when she was just a few months old, with tears streaming down my face. It spoke to the rawest parts of me and in essence, captured exactly the feeling I had, and still do, about watching my beautiful girl grow up in pictures.

When Caleb was born, it took me a little bit to find "that" song. The one that always reminds me of his baby face. And then I heard this:

Once again, I had found a song that spoke to the heart of me and what being a mother to a precious little boy meant to me. I still get a little teary eyed, reminiscing about that sweet angel face tucked in tight every night.....

After Liddy was born, I spent a considerable amount of time in the car, driving the hour and half back and forth to the hospital. I heard this song:

It always, always made me think of that gorgeous baby girl waiting for my return to her side and how absolutely amazing God had created her. Oh yeah, she's amazing just the way she is!

As I said earlier, my son is a music junkie just like his mother. And based on Liddy's reactions to all things musical, I'm pretty sure she'll be one too. I can't wait to see what songs bring me sweet memories in the future. :)


  1. Emily loves all things music as does Caleb. Great song choices.

  2. I love all genres too. It is so cool how a song can transport you to another time and place. I have a funeral song list...I am not kidding.

  3. I could probably make one of those too.....but choosing would be REALLY hard. Somehow I don't think Hotel California is probably appropriate for a funeral. lol


Yes, I read every single comment and I love them all! Please leave us one (and imagine me doing a happy dance when I see it!)
