Sing this Lullaby to Yourself

Translation: something like "It's a Girl" in Italian.

I made this cake ans matching cupcakes for a surprise baby shower party last year during dance team practice for one of my coaches. she loves anything to do with Italy.

At the party we all drew on onsies and little bibs with fabric markers.

Speaking of babies, here are some lullabies that will coo you to sleep, no matter what your age:

1. Lullaby - Sia
2. I Need Some Sleep - Eels
3. Sleep – Juno Soundtrack
4. Daydreamer - Adele
5. Sweet Dream – Greg Laswell
6. From a Shell – Lisa Germano
7. 03.45: No Sleep – The Cardigans
8. Lullaby – Priscilla Ahn
9. We’ll Never Sleep – Rilo Kiley
10. Russian Lullaby – Ella Fitzgerald
