"Our Family Song"

Audrey doesn't like to sleep. Never has. We've loaded an i.Pod with some Beatles music and it plays in her room during nap and night time - this has improved things tremendously. She has taken to a couple of Beatles songs.

Maxwell's Silver Hammer - she calls this one "Bang Bang Bang" and it's her favorite song. When they sing "bang bang" she makes a hammer motion. Hilarious

Oh Darling - this is mama's song.

Octopus's Garden - this is daddy's song.

Here Comes the Sun - this is our family song. Melts my heart. I listened to a lot of Beatles while I was pregnant with Audrey. This song made me cry every time. It summarizes the way I felt after finally conceiving a baby, making it to the point of viability and (eventually) giving birth.

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it's all right
It's all right
