Music

Well, it's almost D-Day.  I can honestly say that I'm really not looking forward to it, and everyone knows that.  Every time I think about leaving my little girl for the entire day, I get choked up.  I can do it, I'm just not ready to.

When I was pregnant, I had 5 ultrasounds before the little bean made her grand entrance.  One was at 16 weeks.  During that ultrasound, we told the tech that we didn't want to know the sex of the baby.  When she got around to checking out the baby's belly, she went just a little too far, and we caught about a 60% shot of the area.  Obviously it wasn't enough to say one way or another, but I didn't see anything.  At the same time...I didn't see anything.  From that day on, I had a feeling that this little bean would be a girl, but I didn't want to get my hopes up, and I still wanted to be prepared either way.  This song has always been one of my favorites, and I often found myself trying to re-word it to be "In My Mother's Eyes".  Now that I have my little girl, it breaks me down whenever I hear it...



And...I just can't seem to get enough of Lady Antebellum's song, Need You Now.  I don't know what it is about this song, but it just doesn't get old...

Need You Now
Songwriters: Haywood, Dave; Kear, Josh; Kelley, Charles; Scott, Hillary

Picture perfect memories, scattered all around the floor
Reaching for the phone 'cause I can't fight it anymore
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without
I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey, can't stop looking at the door
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now
Said I wouldn't call but I've lost all control and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without
I just need you now

Woah, woah
Guess I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all

It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now
And I said I wouldn't call but I'm a little drunk and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without
I just need you now, I just need you now

Oh baby, I need you now


*sigh*...counting down...
