Abigail’s Bedtime Lullaby
In hopes of helping her daughter Abigail sleep, Becky Schaeffer tells her about her resemblances to her mom and dad, and how easy-going and calm she is, even when biting her dad’s nose.

Abigail, it’s time to go to bed
We’re going to bounce you
We’re going to rock you
And then you’ll go to sleep
 
You have my big eyes
You have my curly hair
When I see your face
I can see your dad
Abigail, it’s time to go to bed
 
When you’re teething, you don’t cry
You’re so very calm
You sit there and smile
You love biting Daddy’s nose
 
Abigail, it’s time to go to bed
We’re going to bounce you
We’re going to rock you
And then you’ll go to sleep
