Baby of Mine

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 you 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 those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you
From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

~Ned Washington, from the movie "Dumbo"

R.I.P. Mary

If you haven't previously checked out this beautiful picture book, I highly recommend that you do. It comes with a bonus CD, with the song performed by Peter Yarrow. My crazy, hormonal self is going to cry just thinking about the lyrics of this lovely tune, made more lovely by this picture book. Enjoy! (Anyone have a tissue?)
