A song for our son

Last night Bob decided to give me and Little Elvis our Valentine's Day present early.

He loves music and has written a CD of weather songs for children. He also loves to perform and communicate through songs. He proposed to me by performing Old 97's "Question" at a party. He also performed the song during our wedding. (If you haven't heard this song, it's extremely sweet and romantic.) And for Christmas one year he wrote me my own song.

So when he mentioned playing at "Open Mic Night" at a local coffee bar last night, I wondered if something was up. The fact that he brought Little Elvis' soccer ball guitar and our new digital camcorder made his intentions even more obvious.

Performers at the open mic night get to perform two songs. Bob started off playing “For Jack Tymon” by Scott Miller and the Commonwealth, one of his favorite bands. I hadn't heard the song before, but it was written for a baby boy. Tears streamed down my face as I recorded the performance.

Then he performed a song he had written for the baby. He didn't tell me the title, but I assume it's "I'm Gonna be a Dad." This song was much more upbeat and funny, which I (an emotional pregnant woman) really appreciated. Click here to watch a video of the performance. Here is a link to the lyrics of the song.

I can't wait for Little Elvis to hear the song, and my dad is excited about hearing it as well.

It was a great Valentine's Day present, although I feel really guilty about not having gotten anything for him yet!

Got a great pregnant Valentine's Day story? Or a gift suggestion for me?
