Alex and I were putting Isabella to bed tonight. We were singing songs and saying our prayers. When he was a baby, I made up a silly song that I always sing to him. He wanted to sing it to her tonight.
Do you know how much I love you?
Do you know how much I care?
You're my pumpkin.
You're my pie.
You're the apple of my eye.
Do you know how much I love you?
Do you know how much I care?
You're my pride.
You're my joy.
You're my little baby boy...
When we got to the last line he laughed and said to Isabella, "No, you're my little baby girl. You are my sweetheart!"
As if that weren't enough to bring me to tears, then he told me he wanted to sing her another lullaby. And here are the words he sang as he held his baby sister's hand...
Go to sleep.
Go to sleep.
Go to sleep little baby.
Close your eyes.
Snuggle down.
And rest your little head.
Shut your eyes and go to sleep.
I will give you a kiss goodnight.
When you wake up and see the sun,
you will have my wish.
I asked him where he learned it, and he said from Max and Ruby. I have spent the past hour trying to find it online so I can see the real words, but I cannot find it. I guess the real words don't really matter anyway. What matters is how much my little boy loves my little girl. There is nothing else in this world that matters as much as this.

Isabella is a lucky little girl to be so loved so much by her big brother. I love Alex's lullabye.
