Our New Favorite Song!


The Songs of Love Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing personalized songs for children and teens currently facing tough medical, physical or emotional challenges, free of charge.

(Songs of Love Foundation was featured on 60 Minutes with Dan Rather. Watch Here!)

I've known about the foundation for quite awhile, but wanted to wait until Chloe got a little older and we could understand her personality better so she could be better captured in a song. About a month ago, it hit me -- it was time for Chloe to have her song. And so we sent in an application. I was shocked when we got it in the mail today! It came so quickly AND it is perfect! It is SO Chloe!!! This is the very first video I've ever made, so sorry for its extreme simplicity. I guess that will help you focus on the lyrics a little more?!?! ;)

Enjoy....

((Words, music & vocals by Leah Clark))


Chloe's quite the fashion girl
Pretty bows decorate her curls
Fuzzy socks 'neath her funky shoes
And her ruffles make for "Ah's" and "Ooh's"
She could look at them for hours...
Tulips, daisies & sunflowers
Wishing on dandelions
Lilacs & daffodils in the sun

She's always smiling, giggling, splashing, kicking
Laughing when it's not the time or place
Stretching, swinging, dancing, reading
Blowing kisses through the air so they land
Right on your face

Chloe likes to watch cartoons
While she's eating popsicles
Riding 4-wheelers is fun
So is staying at the cabin
Chloe loves all holidays
There's more time to laugh & play
And when they're over, it's still cool
Chloe's glad to go to school

She's always smiling, giggling, splashing, kicking
Laughing when it's not the time or place
Stretching, swinging, dancing, reading
Blowing kisses through the air so they land
Right on your face

Chloe loves her family
Her Papas, Nana & Grammy
Mom and Dad and cousins
Plus all of her awesome friends
Horses that take her for rides
Out in nature with butterflies
And when it's time to take a rest
Teddy cuddles are the best!

You're amazing just the way you are
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah!
Never, ever, ever give up
Our little girl with big dreams
Celebrating little things
Chloe Gayle, remember - we love you.

We love you!
