AUGUST Three Little Birds

Why do we call it the Three Little Birds?

The name we chose is important to our family and not exclusive of Nick. When I was pregnant with Dee (our last) we tried to have an amnio but they couldn’t get what they needed. When they measured him on the ultrasound they thought that his measurements weren't correct for the age that he was and they were concerned that something wasn‘t the way it should be. When Nick was younger and times got tough financially (or otherwise) we would dance and sing to Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. We started doing the same thing every night after we found out there might be something different about Dee. We had decided that no matter what, we unconditionally loved this baby and he would be an important part of our family and perfect just the way he was. So, with the last three at home and with Nick’s approval, it seemed like Three Little Birds was a good name for our traveling home school.

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
sittin' by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ou-ou:"

Singin': "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing is gonna be all right."
Singin': "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing is gonna be all right!"

I can't seem to get the link to work but if you cut and paste here you can listen to the song:

I had the above picture custom made by Holly & Ivy Design's from Etsy.
