Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me

Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever

Why, (besides the fact that The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies, and I watched it obsessively as a child) does this song always pop into my head when I rock Elliott to sleep? Honestly. He must dream every night of Liesl, Brigitta, and Gretl's sore "finga". Hopefully though, he doesn't have nightmares that involve me making him wear clothes made from hideous curtains...
