So some weeks are better in terms of keeping up with the blog. I was in San Diego for a long weekend for my friend Deja’s engagement party and I haven’t exactly gotten back into the swing of things yet. Tis more work that you would think to go out of town with the babe alone. (Brock on the other hand enjoyed a weekend in Palm Springs with his friends for a bachelor party. He owes me. And will begin to repay me by letting me spend the weekend in the backyard planting things. BEGIN.)
Now then. It turns out that babies actually do like that higher pitched kid-friendly music that you associate with mobiles and musical toys and lullabies. And here I was trying to make it through the first year with just slightly more mellow grown up music.
But Michael pointed me in the direction of Rockabye Baby!. Which is a whole collection of lullabye renditions of adult music. Saved! And it’s not that gross synthesized stuff either. Just real percussion instruments doing their thing. Kind of like kindergarten music class, but hip.
So far I just have the Bob Marley album and I have to admit, I kind of love it. We start nap time by doing the baby sway to One Love on the glockenspiel. It’s pretty sweet. Check it out, mamas! You can get the albums on iTunes and Amazon.
