Peanut’s Playlist

If you know us, you know we like music.  We like music a lot.  We have music on all the time.  If you’ve ever come over and music wasn’t playing – well then you’ve never come over!  Anyway – more and more I am thinking that I have caught Peanut grooving to some of our music.  She does this little rock back and forth with a smile on her face.  Cutest thing ever!  So in the spirit of Peanut’s groovin’ I am going to share some of our favorite tunes with you.

Song #1 on Peanut’s Playlist:

Watch Them Grow, artist – Zach Gill, from the album Zach Gill’s Stuff

Why this song makes the playlist: It was shortly after Peanut’s birth, and Hubby and I were in survival mode – trying to function on minimal hours of sleep, caring for our new little one, and referring to the elusive shower as “glorious.”  As usual, we had our music playing – Hubby was holding Peanut – and Watch Them Grow came on.  We both looked at each other and tears filled our eyes.  We had heard the song a dozen times but never before had the words meant so much to us.

Watch Them Grow

She’s close to God, I’m sure of that
She sits him down, and they have a chat
She asks for sunshine, and he agrees
You see, for her, He’d do anything

You watch them grow, then you let ’em go

She is a monkey, and I’m her tree
And now she’s climbing all over me
Swinging on my vines dancing on my limbs
Her monkey sounds sound like angel’s hymns

You watch them grow, then you let ’em go
You watch them grow, then you let ’em go

She is an angel, she is an imp
She’s got my big toe, and her mother’s lips
She gives fishy kisses, and great big bear hugs
42 pounds of pure love
Then one day she’ll be 17, feelin’ too big for her home
Seems she was just only 3, oh how our children they grow

You watch them grow, then you let ’em go
You watch them grow, then you let ’em go
You watch them grow, then you let ’em go
You watch them grow, then you let ’em go

Then one day she’ll be 33, maybe with a child of her own
Seems she was just 17, oh how our children they grow
He’ll ask for sunshine, and she’ll agree
You see for him, she’d do anything
He is her child, the center of her world
She is his mother… my little girl

You watch them grow, then you let ’em go
You watch them grow, then you let ’em go
