music to my ears

Finnian Jack Balliet. That is his name if you ask him. He was born to be a performer. In fact, one of his first words was pick (guitar pick that is). We couldn't figure out for the longest time what he was asking us for! Now, not only do we have one musician in the family...but two! Our sweet little Finn is always entertaining us, singing us songs and making us laugh. Usually he is all about singing some serious rock and roll while stomping his little foot and bobbing his head to the beat...but every once and a while we can get him to sing a soft song. Natalie captured some of my most favorite pictures of quiet time with the boys singing together the night night song Troy wrote for Finn and sings him to sleep with. I'm not going to lie, sometimes when I hear his little voice singing with his daddy it makes me all teary eyed. I love my little music maker.

The good night song:

When the darkness of the world climbs through your window
Just look up into the sky, the stars will shine to show
I love you, goodnight I love you.

When you wake up in the morning, you will see the sun
When you wake up in the morning, a new day will have begun
I love you, goodnight I love you.

Someday you'll be big, find a new place to live
Have a child of your own to sing this song to
Tell them....
I love you, good night I love you.

I love you, good night I love you.
