my sunshine

When I was little, I distinctly remember my dad singing "You Are My Sunshine" to me and that is one of my most favorite and treasured memories with him. After Reagan came along, I decided that I needed to implement something that was just for Luke and I, something that would always remind him how much I do treasure him.

Each night (and sometimes even more during the day), Luke asks for "Baby Luke." All this basically consists of is me cradling and rocking him and softly singing that same "You Are My Sunshine" to him. It's become a special time for the two of us and I dread the day he's too big for my to hold him like "Baby Luke." For now, I'll snuggle him and love him away and hope that he knows he is my sunshine.

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don't take
My sunshine
