Songs For Anja

The Milk Song (to no particular tune whatsoever because I made that up too)

Mummy's milk is yummy in my tummy
I get to have it many times a day
My mummy makes it just because she loves me
The mummy's milk that's yummy in my tummy

Silly Baby (to the tune of Blondie's "Pretty Baby")

Silly baby
I fell in love with you
The moment I saw you
For the very first time

Goofy baby
You make me laugh and sing
My silly baby
Goofy baby
Silly baby

One very silly thing...the night we returned home from vacation, Anja was on the bed with the sperm donor and me. She has been grabbing at things (people, toys, my hair) for a little while and on that particular night she grabbed her own finger. The sperm donor was very amused, the whole "pull my finger" thing. What was especially amusing was the really concerned look on her face that whatever or whomever would not let go of her. That is what cracked me up. I know you shouldn't laugh at your child's expense, but she won't remember it.

She has since figured out that she can let go. Sigh...I was kind of hoping she would hold on forever.

The time is 1:20 a.m. She's back asleep and my boob is still hanging out. The sperm donor is going to say "Ack! You're an insomniac! It's the Zoloft!" No honey - true muses write when the inspiration hits!

Great to read a new post! Your midnight musings are great. Maybe you can send the songs to the Wiggles? Get'em published?
