Hallelujah

I've gotten in to quite the routine of things to get Declan to sleep for his afternoon nap. My son has no "tired" button and he never wears out. For nap I rock him for at least 30 minutes, rub his back and hum "Hallelujah". I can't forget this last part. If I stop humming, his fluttering eyes pop open like "ummm...don't stop..." Have you heard this beautiful version? Totally worth the 4 minutes. My humming does not compare even one bit.

Curious about other's bedtime song(s)?

It funny the things we do to get them down...I have times when I think to myself 'emily, ruby has gone down for every nap time, and she will go down for this nap too"

Yum! :). I do love that song though!

You're a hero with the naps. Our kids always slept good...we're just now starting to have trouble with napping. I think ours might be about running out!!

We have a hard time settling in for naps over at our house, too! This is a beautiful version of the song, I had never heard it before.

Have you ever heard The Canadian Tenors' version of this song?? It's amazing... as are all of their songs :)
