I keep thinking about what lullabies we will serenade Baby Bear with as we rock him to slumber. With my last family I nannied for I always sang "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight" by the Spaniels (also from Three Men and a Baby) before nap-time. The kids love it and sing it too. I absolutely love that song and will definitely continue that with Baby Bear. My favorite lullaby is Kenny Loggins "Return to Pooh Corner". It gives me chills every time. Such a sweet song. "Danny's Song" I have always loved a ton but it has definitely been striking a chord lately being that we are having a boy. And with Billy Joel being my favorite artist of all time I'm sure "Lullaby (Goodnight, My Angel)" will be a staple. I have also been singing him Amy Grant's "Baby, Baby". Not really a lullaby but I heart it.
What are some of your favorite lullabies either from when you were a child or with your own child? Any recommendations for CDs or songs to play the baby while he sleeps?
