small piece of you






i've been working in the nursery today and i realized there were some really cute things in there that i should show off to our far away families. my friend carol bought the stuffed moose (since we are in idaho). the precious dress and cute shoes are from my favorite sister. oh and i think jessica gave her the baby uggs and wall decals. i had fun painting the big L when bennett suggested we do a art project last friday night.

gradually we are getting ready for her arrival. but i wonder will we ever really be prepared for this little human that's about to come into our lives. i've been listening lots to sara groves' station wagon c.d. about being a parent- getting a little prepared. and here are lyrics to one of my favorite songs on that c.d.

Small Piece of You

I just want a small piece of you
a token to put in my pocket
and I will own that one things
and it would make me happy

I just want a small piece of you
somethin to put in a locket
and i will look at it daily
and that will make me happy

I guess it's human nature to want to hold you very still
I guess it's in a mother to inject a little guilt
Go on son and see the world; I hope you see it all
But please please please don't forget to call

Free to fly free to go free to not look back
That's how free I want you though it scares me half to death
Free to wander miles and miles and free to come back home
That's how free I want you though it chills me to the bone

...Go on son and spread your wings; I hope that you take flight
But please please please don't forget to write

I know you're just a baby sleeping in your bed
And you probably have other thoughts drifting through your head
I know this conversation's a little premature
It's just that I've heard eighteen years goes by like a blur

...I know that it's not fair for me to hold you down now is it
But please please please don't forget to visit

Free to fly free to go free to come back home...
