A Song for My Baby

I love music, and so does my baby girl. I’ve felt her kicking around in my belly for a long time and she especially likes to move when I get some tunes going or when I sing to her myself.

I don’t have the best voice but I sing to her anyway and I think she likes it. I mostly sing a lot of church primary songs to her. I’m working on some labor playlists as well as a “Just Meeting” playlist. So far there’s only 17 songs on that one but by far my favorite one is probably “Capri” by Colbie Caillat. One of my best friends played it for me once and said she listened to it when she was pregnant with her little girl and I went home and got it!

It’s about a mother’s love for her growing baby in her belly. I love singing this song to her and I hope she’ll remember be singing this to her when she’s out on the other side.

Here’s the song, and the beautiful lyrics. For now, although my little girl’s name isn’t Capri, this song is a song for my baby girl, Lil’ J.


She’s got a baby inside

And holds her belly tight
All through the night
Just so she knows
She’s sleeping so
Safely to keep
Her growing
And oh when she’ll open her eyes
There’ll be no surprise
That she’ll grow to be
So beautifully
Just like her mother
That’s carrying
Oh Capri
She’s beauty
Baby inside she’s loving
Oh Capri
She’s beauty
There is and angel growin’ peacefully
Oh Capri
Sweet baby
And things will be hard at times
But I’ve learned to try
Just listening
Patiently, oh Capri
Sweet baby
Oh Capri
She’s beauty
Baby inside she’s loving
Oh Capri
Your beauty
Just like your mother
That’s carrying…Oh Capri

It’s June! We’ll be meeting soon!

Love it!
My dad STILL sings “Hold Me, Love Me, Thrill Me” to me. It’s “my song” and it’s the song we danced to at my wedding.

Melanie says:

I love that song and she has alot of other great songs! Jenn you are so cute! Your going to be a great mommy!

Chantel says:

My mom gave me a CD of Martina McBride’s song In My Daughter’s Eyes when I was pregnant with my daughter. I sang it to my belly, and when I sang it to her when she arrived, it used to soothe her (during her non-colic related cries). I still sing it to her.

That is so beautiful to have a song that will be “our song” for you and your daughter. I already know what will be “our song” if I have a girl. I walked down the aisle to my husband to Babyface’s ‘You are so Beautiful’ and that would be my song to my daughter. Who knows, at her wedding, she might dance with her daddy to that song.

I love this song and you have unknowingly given me a gift. You see my daughter’s name is Kaprice and we call her Capri and even though she is 11 I still think about what a gift she has been to me and I often think about when I was carrying her. I will now share this song for her and it will forever remind me of the love that I experienced when I found out I was pregnant with her and the love that continues to grow with each passing day. Thanks You!!

Heligirl says:

Love that song. It makes me all teary eyed every time. Fingers crossed for you on this last home stretch. You’ll remember the moment they put her in your arms for the rest of your life. I think that is what I’ll remember in my last moments on this earth.

Jenna says:

This is going to sound so dumb, but do you know what my song is for Audrey? Alicia Keys’ “No One.” It came out about the time she was born. One day, I was sitting on the couch holding her, watching MTV. The video came on and I started listening to the words. I know it’s a love song, but it still applied to the way I was feeling at the time. Every time I hear it, I think of my sweet daughter. “No one can get in the way of what I feel for (her).”

My song for Carson is Eva Cassidy’s arrangement of “At Last.” I sang it at my sister’s wedding when I was about 6 months pregnant. When I finally pushed him out, that was the song I immediately thought of. “I found a thrill to rest my cheek to, a thrill that I had never known.”

Beautiful song. Thanks for posting.

YUMMama says:

Isn’t it exciting that soon you’ll be meeting Lil J in a matter of weeks? Can’t believe that time has flown by so quick. And yes she will remember the song. Moo remembered John Legend from hearing me listen to it so much. He puts her right to sleep!!

Nya's mom says:

Moma Lovebug says:

i sang this to my daughter almost everyday during my pregnancy. I knew we were having a girl instantly, and this fit!

Brie H says:

I love it!! You little girl will love your voice no matter what you think about it. When my son was first born and would cry I wanted to sing to him but I couldn’t remember the words to any song but Jesus, lover of my soul and now any time I sing that song to him it comforts him 😀 But I can’t sing very well at all!!
