Caleb's Soundtrack

If you know me at all, you know that music is an integral part of my life. I have a constant soundtrack running in my head for whatever I'm doing at the moment. In fact, one of the first things I did with itunes was create soundtracks for different moods; mellow, driving, workout, etc. I make soundtracks for friends at different stages of life as well, like the birth of a baby, or the loss of a baby. I've been working on composing an instrumental lullaby for Caleb since before he was born. In the meantime, his special song is "Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)" by the Dixie Chicks. I listened to it and sang it all the time while pregnant with him, once we found out we'd be having a boy. To this day, he calms immediately and smiles for me when I sing it to him. Sometimes all it takes is to hum the first line.

This is his soundtrack:
"Godspeed (Sweet Dreams)" - Dixie Chicks
"Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)" - Billy Joel
"You Are So Beautiful" - Joe Cocker
"Love Never Fails" - Brandon Heath
"Lullaby" - Dixie Chicks
"Forever Young" - Rod Stewart
Faith, Hope & Lullabies: Songs of Worship

Call me an overachiever, but if we ever have a little girl, my soundtrack for her is ready. :)

I love his soundtrack! So sweet. I sang "Can't keep my eyes off of you" to Anthony. He would be horrified to hear that but your post brought back all those wonderful memories. Thanks!
