This past Sunday, Mom2be and I went to the Thousand Oaks Mall to burn a gift card we received for the Baby Gap. All of a sudden we walked past this store called Build-A-Bear. We see a bunch of kids in there having fun and getting really excited building teddy bears. Of course, I immediately think of our son and how cool it would be for us to build a bear for him and his room.

It was a very cool experience! I actually had more fun in there that I imagined. Mom2be and I jointly picked the bear, a compromise as usual. We also picked out his teddy bear clothes. The teenage girl clerk asked us if we wanted to record a sound for the teddy bear. What??? Yes, we could record a 10-second message that would play every time the bear’s paw was squeezed. Of course! So we went into the recording studio (the women’s bathroom) and recorded a 10-second greeting in Espanol for our son.

The teenage clerk then had us pick out 2 red velvety hearts, one for each of us parents. Then we each kissed and rubbed them on our own hearts before putting them inside the teddy bear while making a wish. I wished and prayed for a beautiful and peaceful delivery with no complications, and for a healthy baby and mother.

All in all, it was happy experience which I thoroughly enjoyed, made even more special because I thought of our son the whole time. Below are a few of photos of Osito in his new home, waiting for Baby along with us.

I went on YouTube looking for the original video for this song, but instead I found this wonderful video. I wanted to dedicate this song to my son.

Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)
Song lyrics by John Lennon

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It’s getting better and better,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling,
Darling,
Darling Sean.

Thank you to Diego at Soledad en masa who sent me this beautiful song for the coming baby. The song is Arrullo de Dios por el Maestro de Maestros, José Alfredo Jiménez. Diego should know about good music, he is an accomplished Mariachi musician.

ARRULLO DE DIOS
Song lyrics by José Alfredo Jiménez (México)

Esta casa la compro sin fortuna
Esta casa la compro con amor
pa’ que jueguen mis hijos con la luna
pa’ que jueguen mis hijos con el sol

Yo les quiero dejar lo que no tuve
yo los quiero mirar poco a poco crecer
y alcanzar una nube

Yo quisiera que Dios,
Que Dios los arrullara
y un mañana distinto,
y un distinto mañana
también que Dios les regalara…

Yo les quiero dejar lo que no tuve
yo los quiero mirar
poco a poco crecer
y alcanzar una nube

Yo quisiera que Dios,
que Dios los arrullara
y un mañana distinto,
y un distinto mañana
también que Dios los despertara…

Below are two versions of the song:
