Songs of Love

This post is overdue....but things have been a bit crazy for us lately!

I'm sure I've mentioned before how much Kendall loves music. She has it on all the time. Kid songs and mommy music usually top the charts, but she does love her brother's sweet voice singing along with the guitar.

She can usually be consoled with music too. She listens to the words. (like in "if you're happy and you know it" when she nods her head or tries to clap her hands)

Kendall's sweet Aunt Val arranged for a song to be written just for Kendall through Songs of Love a non profit organization that provides the "Medicine of Music" to kids all over. Steve Schuffert wrote and performed the song just for Kendall and it is just precious. Kamden was excited to hear his name in the song too.

So, big thanks to Aunt Val for arranging the song and having it sent to us. I can't upload it to the blog; however, it is available for our friends and family to download for a small donation by visiting their website and entering Briggs in the last name field and 22064 in the record number field.

Here are the lyrics of Kendall's Song

She likes playing peek-a-boo with Mommy.
Reading "Bunny my Honey" too
She likes playing patty cake with Poppy
Swinging and swimming too.

Kendall, Kendall
I'm singing your song
Kendall, Kendall
This song's for you.

There's Nonna and Grandad
Mommy, Daddy, Kamden and Nonnie and Poppie too.
She likes riding a little horsey on Daddy's knee
She's as sweet as sweet can be

Kendall Kendall
I'm singing your song
Kendall Kendall
This song's for you.

So, a big thanks to Aunt Val for thinking of us, and giving us a song we will treasure always. Kamden's already trying to learn it on the guitar :)

If you have a chance, check out the website, make a donation, or nominate someone you love who could benefit from music too.
