EDITOR'S PICK on CD BABY! These are the lullabies I sing to my kids, written for them and with them, filled with love.

My husband and I both sang "Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh" in the middle of the night, when the babies were new to us and the world, when we were rocking them and hoping upon hope that they would go back to sleep. We still sing it, at least once, most every night. It's in a good key for dads (or grandpas, uncles and big brothers) to sing.

"Just Snuggle In" I sang to my tiny daughter and my little son, as they were nursing, and "La Lullaby" was the first song I wrote on my guitar with them, in between their curious plucks and plinks of the strings. "A Sleepy Song" is an attempt at using the power of suggestion to will them to please, please, please go to sleep. And "Baby Grace" was one of the first songs I ever wrote, many, many years before I had my own children, but now, to the delight of my heart and soul, my silly son asks for it almost every night... "sing baby gace again."

I am so very grateful to the folks who have helped me put these songs together!

Produced by Tim Uecker. Engineered by Gabe Johnston of Falcon Recording Studio in Portland, Oregon.

**********************************************************
Kelli Welli is a silly name... Yes, it is! One of the most important people in my life used to call me "Kelli Welli"... so what better name to take as I launch my first Children's EP, to be followed soon by a full album. With the help of Tim Uecker and Gabe Johnston, along with my dad, Will Caldwell, and several of my good friends, we're also working on groups of love songs, animals songs, and more... It's so fun!

I am the lucky mom of twin toddlers, a little boy and a little girl. I love to write songs and stories about all kinds of things, but especially with and for my kiddos. Together, we are working on our guitar, drum, cowbell, slide whistle, kazoo, harmonica, and shaker egg skills. We love to read together, look at and talk about beautiful, fun, and especially funny pictures.

I have been writing songs and stories for a long time--you can find more at my Kelli Caldwell - Songwriter site--but some of my first songs were kids' songs, written long before I had kids of my own. I love kids. I believe in kids. I can't think of better people to hang out with and sing with and love and laugh with.

Every soul under the moon
Will say goodnight too
Sleepyheads tucked in their beds
A kiss and I love you--- I love you

Sous la lune et les etoiles
On dit bonne nuit, bonne nuit
A chaque enfant
Dans son lit
Un bisou et je t'aime, je t'aime

Drift off to dreamland
Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh

Just snuggle in, my tiny daughter
Just snuggle in, my little son
And I will hold you close to me
And I will hold you while you dream---

Oh dream,
May your dreams be beautiful
Give you wings
To fly through a -nother world--- (Vox: B-C-B-A-G)

A-nything that I might do
To help your dreams come true
I’ll do for you--- my b-a-by
My b-a- - -by

Just snuggle in, my tiny baby
Just settle in there, little one
And I will hold you tightly
And I will hold you while you dream---

May the scene be serene
When you close your eyes
Green trees
And the bluest of the blue skies --- (Vox: B-C-B-A-G)
A stream of hope through solid ground
And you feel love all around
My wish for you--- my b-a-by
My b-a- - -by

Just snuggle in, my tiny daughter
Just snuggle in, my little son
And I will hold you close to me
And I will love you always---

Just snuggle in

Tiny hands and precious feet
With a beautiful heart He made you
And brought you here to me—

Shining through, so pure and sweet
What a beautiful Son will guide you
And keep your spirit free

Baby Grace
Baby Grace
God has graced my life
By sending you—
Track Name: A Sleepy Song
This is a sleepy song -- ahh ahh
This is a sleepy song -- ahh ahh
God will be keeping you safe while you're sleeping
This is a sleepy song
