Making a lullabye playlist
Tue, 11-01-2011 - 4:37pm

I'm working on making a playlist of lullabies for the baby. I'm trying to stay away from the traditional "twinkle twinkle little star" types of songs and use songs that are not necessarily meant as lullabies but are soothing and child-friend nonetheless (if that makes any sense). Of course, I've had to include some old faithfuls, such as "Hush Little Baby."

Olivia listens to Kenny G's Brahm's Lullaby on repeat all night. She doesn't like it if you get the wrong song or do the whole album.

The Shrek version of Hallelujah is the best, IMO. The one Jason did on the show is much better than the one he released on his CD.
