Blueberry Eyes

There was a song on a lullaby tape we used to listen to called Blueberry Eyes. It's from a musical, but I'm not sure which one. I sing it to Ollie now.
It goes like this:
Blueberry eyes
and two lips red-ripe cherries,
Apricot cheeks,
Watermelon seed hair.
Sleep now my darling, my soon to be beauty,
Sleep, dearest harvest,
in bloom everywhere.
This boy definitely has blueberry eyes!
Two perfectly ripe blackish blue blueberries.

We bought this picture from Target today because we saw it, it was cheap, and it looks just like Ruby! Crooked teeth and everything. It's going in Ollie's room.
I have never bought mass-produced cheesy and cheap art before, but this had to be an exception.
We are suckers and are completely overly obsessed with our dog.
At least we admit it.
And who wouldn't love this sweet girl?!

So many memories and so many good songs we use to sing. Sooo glad the legacy continues. There is nothing better than a freshly bathed baby and a rocking chair and a good lullaby...
