    Some of you warned me :)

    Hi ALL!

    When my baby daughter was born almost 8 weeks ago, many of you intimated that ALL my time would be taken up with her, more than I knew!

    Well, let me say you were TOTALLY 100% telling the truth!!

    When we first met her 2 days after she was born (we are adopting her), I fell in love right on the spot. I knew beforehand that I was planning on writing her a little lullaby. Somehow during the first week (all a blur to me - don't ask me how I did it), I came up with the first half of it. But then because EVERY spare moment was taken up with caring for her, I never got to the rest of it. (Or even got to REST period! ) It has been really bugging me because I have been wanting to have her listen to it all this time. Well, I FINALLY have it done and thought I would share it with you.

    I wrote it first in Finale and then exported it to Tracktion.

    I will add the PDF of the score soon.

    Here is the full score:

    (EDIT: Added the score)

    Here it is. Lullaby for Claire Annette Marie Wickham
    (EDIT: - Ths is new Revised version - Harp and Glockenspiel have been brought down a bit so they aren't so loud. Otherwise, it's exactly the same)

    And here is a cute pic of her smiling in her sleep:

    Jerry,

    That was very special. I had a feeling that a you'd be writing a lullaby for Claire, and I'm so happy you shared it with us too. She's a lucky little girl.

    Congratulations!

    That music's powerful stuff
    I actually fell asleep while listening…!


    all jests aside.. It was wonderfully delightful!
    You'll always have strong memories of your daughter when you listen to your composition.





    It's strange how soft bell/triangle samples creates a lulling effect.

    It always seem to make me very ,… very ….

    Jerry:

    I went to sleep too. Just kidding.......

    Actually, your daughter will know how much you loved her from the beginning as she has an opportunity to play this all through her life. A lot of us don't really know about our parents when we were infants, but this is a definite reminder of how much your wanted her and loved her........

    Great lullaby.......

    I went to sleep also but that's normal for old people.

    Pretty song and a pretty little girl-type baby dudette child. (The kid has more hair on her head than I do.)

    Congratulations!
