I Want You To Know
Rebecca Doyle and Ryan Flanders lovingly imagine childhood events for their soon-to-be-born Elena.

I want you to know, baby, I love you.
And there are many things that I hope you’ll do.
 
I want to see you rake the leaves
And do with them as you please.
 
I want you to know…
 
I want to see you eat cookies
And promise to eat your veggies.
 
I want you to know…
 
And if you fall and skin your knees,
I want you stand up proudly.
 
I want you to know…
