For Baby...

This weekend we celebrated the kiddo's 3rd birthday. I can not believe that he is 3 already! I have been feeling all bittersweet, and full of warm fuzzies when I think of how far he has come. He went from a chubby little baby to a smart as a whip, fast talking toddler. I love him to pieces.


During his infancy we would listen to a lot of music and I would sing a lot of music to him. One of my favorite groups is Peter, Paul and Mary. We are currently on a Puff, the Magic Dragon kick here with the little kiddo singing along when I sing to him the storybook.

This got me remembering another song by them, For Baby. I would sing this one to him all the time and it would soothe him. It has a sweet message. Please click on the video and watch the beautiful Mary Travers, bless her heart, sing it to us.

Perhaps, all you parents out there can take a moment to think about your babies, new or grown.


Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy this time while it lasts Michelle...before you know it he will be graduating from pre-school, then high school, then college, and then getting married!!! My son just got engaged over New Year's and although I am very excited for him it is also bittersweet.

Happy (belated) birthday to the kiddo! *throws confetti with streamers* The same lament shared by many a parent....how fast they grow up. Sounds like he's an adorable force to be reckoned with. Thanks for sharing the beautiful song as well... ^_^

Happy birthday to the kiddo! I grew up with Peter, Paul and Mary and my kids grew up with Peter, Paul and Mary. I hope that their kids will as well!

Awww, Happy Birthday to the little one. :) And I loved Puff the Magic Dragon when I was growing up. :) So adorable.

Oh, my little one is going to be bigger than me soon. :) Only to remember when he was so tiny....
