I am back at work a bit this week so there should be more updates here, as I’ll be sitting in front of the computer. Here’s a new weekly feature about music I’m playing to Bean.
Time was that I made music mixes for guys I liked or for my siblings (Cathy: remember “Music for Meerkats?”). Now I make ’em for the Bean.

The best of the lot was Trois Gymnopedies (Gymnopedie No. 1), by Erik Satie:
This got her nicely drowsy while nursing. If you know of any good music for babies– even music not officially written for babies or kids– post ideas in the comments. Lullabies, singalongs, and other fun songs welcome.
