And so it begins...


Elizabeth has officially outgrown her two smallest sleepers, including the one with frogs on it, I'm sad to say.  She was swimming in it when we brought her home from the hospital, but those extra centimetres of length do make a difference!


In other news, we've discovered that music and especially lullabies are pretty good at soothing her to sleep. 

We're enjoying the songs on the Sleep Sound In Jesus CD by Michael Card that my aunt Maybeth sent very much.  It made us wonder whether any of you had recommendations for good children's music.


What songs and lullabies do you remember fondly from your childhood or your children's childhoods?

Hi Mary, apparently Mozart and other cadenced classical and baroque music are very good for cognitive development, as well as soothing. I once had lunch with a professor of linguistics when I was in publishing sales, and she had done some research on language acquisition, cognitive development and exposure to the metrical complexities of classical music.

Oh my gosh she is darling. I love Baby Mine (the lullaby from Dumbo)- I sing that all the time! Oh, and the Baby Don't You Cry, Gonna Make A Pie song from the movie Waitress.

The easiest to locate children's music is when mommy sings. It'll be her favourite I bet. Do you remember
"Schlof, bubli, schlof?" "All through the night"

I don't quite remember the words... It's been a while!

Is "All through the night" this?

Sleep Baby Sleep in English:

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Thy father guards the sheep.
Thy mother shakes the dreamland tree,
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee,
Sleep, baby, sleep.

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Our cottage vale is deep.
The little lamb is on the green,
With snowy fleece so soft and clean,
Sleep, baby, sleep.

German words... but not the dialect I remember...

Schlaf, Kindlein, schlaf.
Der Vater hüt't die Schaf.
Die Mutter schüttelt's Bäumelein,
Da fällt herab ein Träumelein.
Schlaf, Kindlein, schlaf!

These are the bits I remember... no guarantees on spelling: Mom, can you fill in the blanks and correct it?

Shlof, bubli, shlof
Die Vater gard die shof
Die Mutter _______ die Himmerli
