Baekhyun lullabying Aeris to sleep - {{audio}}

Little Star lyrics: (the part Baekhyun sang)

Close your eyes and listen carefully to my story

Before my story ends, you will dream

Little Star~ Tonight~ I will watch over you all night

When i first met you, you are so blinding

When i first saw your smile, it felt like i had the world

Little Star~ Tonight~ I will watch over you all night

When i see you fast asleep in my arms, i can’t take my eyes off you for a second

You’re so pretty, i feel like my breath will stop, how can i fall asleep

My love, my everything, my angel from heaven

She put him out like the burnin’ end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin’ to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I’ll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

Robert Smith: “He would always make them up. There was always a horrible ending. They would be something like ‘Sleep now, pretty baby - or you won’t wake up at all’." 

 "Lullaby” was inspired by the disturbing songs his father would sing him when he could not sleep as a child. NME Magazine.

Today is Baby’s due date, with little to signal it’s also her birthday. So, walking, yoga, yoga ball, and a crepe date with my private practice partners.

I can’t believe how ready we are. (Well, for this birth experience. I’ve been a child and family social worker / therapist for 16 years and nobody is ever truly ready for their first newborn. ❤).

I’m humbled by the level of attentive care Hubs has shown, through all of it, but this past week especially. Multiple texts yesterday asking how I’m feeling. Gentle questions about her kick counts.

I’m humbled by the complete outpouring of love and support from our friends and co-workers. I literally can’t keep up with the emails and texts. I was prepared for the love from my best friends, but to also receive “hope you’re feeling ok” and “do you need anything?” directly to me from HUBS friends?!? I’m blown away. Who is this human who married me who always attracts such grounded, gentle souls to him?

Any time, little one. You are welcome anytime.
