Dear Baby Boy,
Like most little girls, I grew up listening to love songs, daydreaming about my crushes and the family I would one day have… dreaming about you honestly… And never in my wildest dreams, did I ever imagine to have been gifted something so pure… so sweet… so perfect. And that is exactly what you are.
So, as your mother (and since I have already made a mixtape of love songs for your sissy 10 Love Songs I Dedicate to my Daughter), I thought it only fitting that you have your very own list. After all, you are the boy I’ve dreamed of my whole life.
While I do dedicate the obvious songs such as “There Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and “You are My Sunshine” to you, I thought I’d get a little more personal here.
- I Cross My Heart by George Strait
I had to start off with the one I’ve been singing to you before I ever met you. I need you to know that my “love is unconditional” and I “knew it from the start.” The very start. As soon as I held you, I knew this was meant to be my song to you. Oftentimes, I still sing it to you, and I do mean every word. “I cross my heart and promise to give all I’ve got to give to make all your dreams come true. In all the world, you’ll never find a love as true as mine.” This is our song of all songs, baby boy.
- I Do It For You by Bryan Adams
Seriously, I do not make a move without thinking of you. So “everything I do, I do it for you” and “I would give it all, I would sacrifice” are so true, sunshine. My life really does revolve around you.
- I Could Not Ask for More by Edwin McCain
You and your sister give my life meaning. “Smiling just to see the smile upon your face, these are the moments I thank God that I’m alive, these are the moments I’ll remember all my life…Everything you are is everything to me. These are the moments I know heaven must exist.” Thank you for giving me a purpose. I could not ask for more than my time with you. You’re all I’ve waited for… and I could not as for more.
- You had Me from Hello by Kenny Chesney
“Your smile captured me. You were in my future as far as I could see.” The moment I looked into your eyes and took your hand in mine, I became yours. “It was over from the start; you completely stole my heart.” Ask me if I love you, I always will. You had me from hello, baby boy, and you always will.
- Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley
This is one of those songs daddy used to play for me, but it relates to the very first day I ever met you… When you “[took] my hand, [you took] my whole life too, For I can’t help falling in love with you.” I knew right away my love for you was undeniable. I must be fool, because I rushed in and couldn’t help falling in love with you.
While we’re on Elvis, I couldn’t resist sneaking this one to my mixtape for you. Because “You have made my life complete and I love you so…All my dreams fulfilled for my darling I love you and I always will” I’ll never let you go…
- Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran
Darling, I will be loving you til [you’re] 70… I fell in love with “maybe just a touch of a hand.” And it was; it was the very first touch of your hand; that’s all it took. Every time you “place your head on my beating heart” I fall even deeper… And “when my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades” just “know [I] will still love [you] the same,” because “your smile’s forever in my mind and memory.” I thank you for letting me find love right where we are. My love for you will never fade, even when I do…
- Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis
I used to have this song on a cassette tape when I was a little girl, but it holds true for my love for you… “This love that I feel for you always will be…As sure as I live, this love that I give is gonna be yours until the day that I die” and then the entire chorus… Your Daddy has played this song for me, and I’m now dedicating it to you. Because I promise you… I’m gonna love you forever and ever, forever and ever, amen.
- Shameless by Garth Brooks
Honestly, son, I’m so very, seriously “shameless when it comes to loving you”… “I’ll do anything you want me to; I’ll do anything at all.” “I didn’t know I could fall this deep in love again, but it was “out of my hands” and you have all of me now. I am truly wrapped around each of your precious little fingers… I’m shameless (just wanted you to know).
- From This Moment On by Shania Twain
I couldn’t make my list complete without something from my girl, Shania. Every word in this entire song has been true from the moment I met you.
“From this moment, as long as I live, I will love you. I promise you this.” You are my dream come true, the answer to my prayers, and I’ll love you from this moment (Dec. 2, 1:47 p.m.) on…
- The Keeper of the Stars by Tracy Byrd
I had to end with another of my favorites, because God knew what I needed way before I ever did: I needed you. You filled a piece of my heart that I didn’t even know was missing. You complete me and our family, and I thank God for you every, single day.
“It was no accident me finding you. Someone had a hand in it long before we ever knew. And I just can’t believe you’re in my life… I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars. He sure knew what He was doin’ when he joined these two hearts…I hold everything, when I hold you in my arms. I’ve got all I’ll ever need thanks to the keeper of the stars.”
<<Thank you Lord, for filling my heart and making my life complete… There really are no words to show my gratitude for this life, this love I have been granted. To You, I gratefully tip my hat.>>
Happy 1.5 years of sweet, sweet life, baby boy. “I love you with every beat of my heart… I swear” and “I’m head over boots for you…” always.
