Lately on rough days, I take a deep breath, and pop in the JJ Heller CD I received with my MOPS membership this year. This song, “Sailing the Sugar Sea”, is one of my favorites, and as I was taking these photos I thought of lyrics. JJ’s music feels like a giant hug to my weary soul.

So, this is my Week 12 of the Project 52…. just me observing his little features, how they’ve changed over the past 23 months, and recognizing that this is the last time he’ll ever be this itty bitty. I mean, he’s not “tiny” by any means… he’s broad and big and has the cutest chunky legs. :) But as a third time mama, I know it’s important to think about the “long days and short years”.

Oh how I love this wild and crazy little boy of mine…

 

Sunset in the sky
Bid the day goodbye
Leave your worries from the day
Let your troubles fly far away

I will miss you
When you're sleeping
Will you find me in your dreams
Will you look for me in rainbows
I'll be sailing the sugar sea

Moonlight on your skin
Lullaby in the wind
Fireflies all aglow
They flicker like an old picture show

I will miss you
When you're sleeping
Will you find me in your dreams
Will you look for me in rainbows
I'll be sailing the sugar sea
