Sometimes, when I’m deep in the thick of rocking the babe to sleep, I draw a blank when thinking of different songs to sing.

So…I decided to write them down!

The following is a list of my 51 favorite songs to sing to the littles. 

Note: these are NOT all children’s songs! I’d go crazy if I only sang children’s songs (as fun as they are). Some are just my favorite pop, Disney, and Christmas songs.

**Disclaimer: none of these songs are mine or were written by me. But I’m sure you already knew that. :)**
