Cradlesong

Everybody's got a different story
Everybody wanna give their selves away
But I'm still afraid
If we can stay out of their field of vision
If we can keep ourselves a half a world away
Ah honey, we'll be ok
The world can be so cruel
But I will sing to you
This cradlesong

Everybody's got their own opinion
Everybody's got a place where they belong
Like a favorite song
I don't want to be a faded memory
I don't want to be the ghost that you can't shake
I want be the real thing
The world can be so cruel
But I will sing for you
This cradle song
All night long

No one said we were victims, honey
No said we had to keep the things we get
And there ain't no regrets
All our friends, they moved to Hollywood
But we ain't that desperate yet, oh no
Ain't nothing like the real thing
The world can be so cruel
And let me sing for you
This cradlesong
All night long


We love our baby boy. And we love to cuddle with him. Some of our favorite moments of the day are when he lays his tired little head on our shoulders, sighs, and closes his eyes to fall into his deep slumber. He cuddles back. I know he won't do it forever, and if I could freeze time, I would freeze it during one of those moments. I would just hold my precious little man forever and keep him away from all the ugliness and cruelty out in the world.

So sweet and sad at the same time! What a precious baby boy!

Great pictures! I already get sad thinking that someday Evan may not want to cuddle with me and he isn't even here yet! But that's the way growing up works. It's good to learn to live in the moment instead of worrying about the future.
