A Song for Timothy

I'll be the first to admit that I have absolutely no creativity.  However, in spite of this and due entirely to lack of sleep, during the first few months of Timothy's life I composed a song for him.  Okay - I did not exactly compose a song, but during the late night nursing sessions I made up a song that I sang for him and it ended up sticking.  He seems to enjoy it and when he's crying in the car it tends to soothe him.  I'm about 99% sure that he likes the song because it is VERY repetitive, it says his name a lot, and it is familiar to him.  Anyway -- per the recommendation of Amanda, I thought I would share the lyrics. 


My Inspiration

A Song for Timothy

[Chorus] I love my baby, baby, baby, baby all day long
I love my baby, baby, baby, baby and I sing this song

Timothy you’re my little boy
Timothy you’re my pride and joy
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you weren’t born on your due date
Timothy you were a few days late
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you were born in the winter
Timothy they to took you out like a splinter
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you don’t look like me, but
Timothy you are as cute as can be
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you have so much hair
Timothy the other babies say it’s not fair
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you’re a little man
Timothy you’re gonna get a tan
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you have a sister and brother
Timothy they love you like no other
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you are getting so big
Timothy your hair looks like a wig
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy you can grow up to be
Timothy anything you want to be
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

Chorus

Timothy I don’t know what I’d do
Timothy if I didn’t have you
Timothy I love you so much you don’t know,
So I sing this song so my love will show

On the go on the sand

video
Here's a little video of Timothy exploring on the beach.  It took a few days for him to do more than eat sand, but here he is crawling around.  I have a feeling he is going to be a big fan of the beach!
