Virtual Baby Shower

Today is the Virtual Online Baby Shower for Heather of Hopscotch and Hydrangeas. Her baby is due within the next few weeks, and Rhonda at Scooterblu's Whimsy decided to host a day of baby-themed posts in Heather's honour. I am thrilled to be able to do something to Heather. She is a constant supporter of my meager decorating and creative endeavors. My contribution to the baby shower is music! Here are some of my favourite baby-themed songs. To listen to them, click play on the player in my sidebar. When you're finished here, head over to Scooterblu's Whimsy for the rest of the shower. And go visit Heather to read the beautiful letter she wrote to her unborn baby girl.

Home by Minnie Driver Angel, asleep on my shoulder You don't know, how you're gonna grow. Think you'll be strong and kind like your daddy Sweet and generous, as your mama too. Sky above, endless and ever blue filled with stars, shining their light on you They're there when you're feeling scared you're all alone, they lead you home. Home Angel, look what you've come to. Like the deep blue sea love is all around you. It's there when you're standing tall it'll be there when you fall It's at the edge of all the dreams you dream Sky above, endless and ever blue filled with stars, shining their light on you They're there when you're feeling scared, you're all alone, they lead you home. Home Angel, asleep on my shoulder you don't know how you're gonna grow. Think you'll be strong, like your daddy sweet and generous, as your mama too. It's waiting for you, it's waiting for you, it's waiting for you. ***** With Arms Wide Open by Creed Well I just heard the news today It seems my life is going to change I close my eyes, begin to pray Then tears of joy stream down my face With arms wide open Under the sunlight Welcome to this place I'll show you everything With arms wide open With arms wide open Well I don't know if I'm ready To be the man I have to be I'll take a breath, take her by my side We stand in awe, we've created life With arms wide open Under the sunlight Welcome to this place I'll show you everything With arms wide open Now everything has changed I'll show you love I'll show you everything With arms wide open With arms wide open I'll show you everything With arms wide open If I had just one wish Only one demand I hope he's not like me I hope he understands That he can take this life And hold it by the hand And he can greet the world with arms wide open With arms wide open Under the sunlight Welcome to this place I'll show you everything With arms wide open Now everything has changed I'll show you love I'll show you everything With arms wide open With arms wide open I'll show you everything With arms wide open ***** Welcome to our World by Chris Rice or Michael W. Smith (yeah, I know it's a Christmas song, but it makes me cry every time)
Tears are falling, hearts are breaking

How we need to hear from God You've been promised, we've been waiting

Welcome Holy Child Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger How I wish we would have known But long-awaited Holy Stranger Make Yourself at home Please make Yourself at home Bring Your peace into our violence Bid our hungry souls be filled Word now breaking Heaven's silence

Welcome to our world Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us Tender brow prepared for thorn Tiny heart whose blood will save us Unto us is born Unto us is born So wrap our injured flesh around You Breathe our air and walk our sod Rob our sin and make us holy

Perfect Son of God Perfect Son of God Welcome to our world

***** Ruby Adeline by Minnie Driver Ruby Adeline Your life will be so fine Ruby Adeline You're gonna have the sweetest time I could wish you lots of things A clever mind and diamond rings The knowledge that you're always free Compassion for all that you see But the best thing, I can think of Is to wish you love Ruby Adeline Your life will be so fine Ruby Adeline You're gonna have the sweetest time So right from the very start I wish you a lions heart A little darkness let it come So that you will always know the sun May it shine down from above Let it fill your life with love Ruby Adeline Your life will be so fine Ruby Adeline You're gonna have the sweetest time

  3. I loved your music...especially since that is how I end each of my posts. How sweet the little songs are. I really do like "Welcome to Our World". We sing it at church at Christmas. Wasn't this fun showering Heather? Make sure you come and visit my shower, too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  4. Well I realized this morning that I forgot to add the music! It's added to the sidebar now, so enjoy if you like! I also fixed the font in my post...the hazards of copying and pasting I guess.
