Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Andy's favorite lullaby these days is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. We sit together in the rocking chair before he goes to his crib. The room is completely dark and we sing. Sometimes Andy asks me to sing softly. Sometimes he asks me to sing loud. Sometimes he gently rubs my arm with his little hands and he sings with me. This is one of my favorite times of the day...Katie patiently waits in her room during this time and Bobby has already been tucked in. This time is just for Andy and I. I love to sit and enjoy the smell of his hair, the sweet sound of his voice, and the gentle touch of his hands. These are the moments that make all the "craziness" of the day melt away. These are the moments when my heart grows more than I ever thought possible. These are the moments I want to remember when my munchkins aren't so little anymore. For now, I am going to soak these moments up and enjoy every precious second of our lullaby time.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star!
