Many of you know wonderful readers know that I had my 5th child 4 weeks ago. One thing you may not know about me though is that I am a music fanatic and I am always looking for good age-appropriate music for my 5 babies (ages 4 weeks-8 years old). So, I was really excited when I was given a copy of the Lovely Baby & Mommy CD from Lovely Baby Music.
What is it?
Raimond Lap, the creator of Lovely Baby, has put together 10 very sweet songs about moms in the Lovely Baby & Mommy CD. It is like a big celebration of moms and as with all Lovely Baby Music, it is intended for babies prenatal to 36+ months. The Lovely Baby & Mommy CD and the Lovely Baby & Daddy CD include lyrics, but all other Lovely Baby CD's are instrumental only.
What did we think?
First, I would like to try and speak for my 4 week old baby who has sat quietly on my lap, wide awake for the last hour just listening to the music without fussing. I think his quiet sweet coos are telling me he likes it. He is so calm right now, and I believe it is because of the soothing music playing.
I also have a 35 month old child and the first thing she said when the CD came on was "Mom, this music makes me want you to hold me." Gotta love that. Before I can tell the next thing she said, I have to mention that through the music there are baby sounds (like babies or kids saying "mommy" or giggling). My little lady said "Oh...I love that sweet baby's laugh--he's so cute like our baby."
I also have 3 kids that are ages 4, 7, and 8. This Sunday I went to church with the 5 kids and my mother-in-law. My husband was unable to come due to his work schedule, and it was my first time attempting an outing of this proportion. Our church is 3 hours long, and for 2 of those hours I teach a class of kindergartners (5-yr-olds). Needless to say, by the end, I was totally drained. And my kids were totally wired-all wanted to yell over each other on the way home and so I put on the Lovely Baby & Mommy CD. Everyone quieted down and listened to the peaceful music, and I was so glad!
Many of the CD's my kids listen to and like drive me crazy, but this one is not so bad. I thought it was good music with fair lyrics. Some of the music lyrics were better than others, in that some just made more sense to me. But what I like is that all the lyrics fit with the music style from song to song, and the lyrics are very sweet and loving toward moms. As a mom it made me get a little teary eyed occasionally. I loved the lyrics to the song called "My Closest Friend." Musically, I especially loved the song "She is A Mom." You can actually listen to the song "She is a Mom" here.
