Paul Simon

Jonas totally loves music. It's so funny and relieving. He'll be screaming and I can't figure out what the heck the problem is - I'll have changed his diaper, fed him for an hour, burped him etc. And finally one day out of desperation I turned on a Stevie Wonder song (Boogie on Reggae Woman... random I know) and as soon as he took a deep breath between screams, when he was quiet enough to actually hear anything, he stopped crying right away. It's turned out to work every time. I think the poor kid gets bored. But hey, I like music too so it's perfect. He seems to like the upbeat music with drums. We've tried Bach and Mozart but that doesn't calm him down. Sorry Jonas, we tried... The studies aren't conclusive on classical music making you smarter anyway. So nowadays Paul Simon seems to be his favorite. (to play the full songs go here and login - it's free)
