|This is me & H when he was about 3 months old. I have a great picture of me dancing with him when he was a baby but I can't find it|
"Is this love, is this love, is this love
Is this love that I'm feelin'
Is this love, is this love, is this love
Is this love that I'm feelin' "
This verse sums up what I was feeling at that time. As a new mom, my heart was bursting with love. Sometimes I would wonder if that really was just incredible amounts of love that I had for H or if my hormones and chemical changes were just playing tricks on me.
I used to dance around the room with H to this song as he laughed and smiled. Every time I hear this song, it brings me back to the wonderful 6 weeks that I had at home with my son.
After 6 weeks I returned to work. Talk about H.A.R.D. Every afternoon when I would pick him up from his caregiver, Gayle, I would cry the whole way home because I was so happy to be with him. Without fail, almost every time we were on our way home, Katy Perry "Fireworks" would come home. Since my hormones were raging, this song made me cry.
When that verse came on, I would sing it to H at the top of my lungs with tears streaming down my face. I just wanted him to know that he was perfect to him and could do whatever he wanted to do and be whatever he wanted to be.

I was lucky enough to be able to stay home with my kids permanently after we had A. This was an adjustment for everyone in the family. I suddenly had more time to listen to music and fell in love with Phillip Phillips CD. I don't watch American Idol. I prefer my reality TV to be as trashy as possible (example: Dance Moms). So, I really had never heard of him and just could not get enough of him. JJ gave me Phillip Phillips CD "The World from the side of the Moon" as a stocking-stuffer. I would listen to his all day long.
This is the song I fell in love with and the below verse is what brings me to tears.
"Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons that fill you with fear
Trouble it might drag you down
You get lost you can always be found
Just know you're not alone
'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home."
I would sing this to her as I was putting her to bed. I wanted her to always know that I was going to do my best to make our house not just a house but a home that she could always run to and would be accepted.
Whenever I hear that song, I think of rocking her to sleep with her little head on my shoulder and fingers intertwined in my hair.
So, those are 3 songs that remind me of my special times with my children. What songs are there that remind you of wonderful times in your life?
