One of my must–haves for my hospital suitcase was music. I packed portable speakers and my iPod loaded with 100 plus special "baby–to–be" songs.

To see what happened when my daughter was born,


When my newborn made her debut, K.T. Tunstall's "Suddenly I See" rang out. The song starts, "Her face is a map of the world, is a map of the world. You can see she's a beautiful girl, she's a beautiful girl."

Not knowing my babe's gender ahead of time, there couldn't have been a more poignant or perfect song. Every time I hear the tune, my heart melts a little.

Do you have a special song for your wee one?
