Trekker’s Lullaby

Last October the long awaited arrival of our third grandchild took place.  And boy, was he worth the wait.  Trekker Prather Blackburn has taken all of us by storm.  Now at age three months his personality has really started to emerge.   

He likes splashing, dance parties, grandmas & grandpas, cozy pjs, and cuddles.  He dislikes sniffles, putting his arms in his sleeves, doctors, Mr. Turtle who hangs above his hammock swing, and cold hands.

Jesse asked us to write a lullaby for her baby before he was born.  The race was on to complete the piece before he made it on the scene. We won.  It helped that he was eleven days overdue.  Still, I like to think that Trekker helped us write it.

Thanks SO MUCH to Jesse for the treasured video footage AND for providing the sweet vocals.  Thanks also goes out to “Uncle Adam” for his fun illustrations.

Nothing compares to the joy I feel when I talk to Trekker and he smiles and slowly blinks back at me in recognition. I echo the sentiments of  A.A. Milne when he penned, “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
