What non-sappy song should I use for a baby video?

Accompany my baby! We took a picture of our son every week for his first year, and I'm making them into a video to show on his birthday. What unexpected or otherwise non-sappy song can I use to go along with this?

I'm trying to avoid anything sentimental or "on the nose" ("What a Wonderful World," "You're My Best Friend," etc.), or anything too indie-precious/Mumfordy (you know what I mean). Basically, I realize it is a cliche to make a slideshow of your baby and I wonder if I can somehow subvert this cliche a bit through music selection.
I've also considered not using any music, but dead silence doesn't seem like the right choice either. Any genre could be OK, although it does need to be family-friendly. What comes to your mind? Thanks, friends.
