A Song for Our Baby Girl

My husband just made his first edited video (you should watch it before you read this), and I couldn't be more proud! I think it's pretty good for a first-timer with PC capabilities, right?!

The song you hear is one of my all-time favorite songs. It's sung by a guy named Will Hoge, and I was pretty much obsessed with him in high school and college. Anyway, in college I thought about framing the words to this song and giving it to a friend of mine who was expecting a little girl. I never did, and last night these words came back to me as Jeramie and I shared our excitement over having a girl. Needless to say, it will definitely be framed now and hanging in OUR nursery!

Here are the lyrics to what you heard on the video, as well as a few other verses that didn't make the cut:

May the sunlight find your face
Even when the rain does fall
And get back on your feet again
Every time you slip and fall
Keep your heart wide open
And always taking in
And even when it's broken
Be strong enough to fix it up again

Oh little baby girl
Sweet little baby girl
I wish I could hold your hand in this great big world
Oh little baby girl

And I hope your hands are steady
And never need to make a fist
And I hope that when you're ready
You get one never ending kiss
And I hope that deep inside of you
There's a sweet eternal song
And I hope the words are pretty
And that you'll always sing along

And I hope your friends are many
And your laughter's always loud
To help you when you're lonely
And pick you up when you're down
I hope your eyes shine bright, love
And learn to see the light
Take the time to listen
Decide yourself what's wrong or right

Oh little baby girl
Sweet little baby girl
Be strong in this great big world
Oh little baby girl
