Bringing Up Baby, As Music Lovers Might

I know I have said this before but I really do love NPR. Yesterday on All Things Considered Bridid McCarthy did a story on music lovers chosing the music their child will listen to the very first time they come out of the womb. This is a wonderful 4 minute podcast that you will enjoy. It brought back wonderful memories of Todd and I taking our CD's right into the birth center where Marin was born and playing music for her as we all got to know each other in those first hours.

I have thought about this very thing since I was in jr. high. Not specifically about what music will my baby hear first (that started when I was like graduating high school). But how babies could be affected by what music they are around and the amount of music that they are exposed to. Thanks for posting NPR's report, I loved it. I have wondered how I could have music playing while giving birth and it was good to hear that someone actually spent time in brining a selection of cd's to their child's birth. I still don't know what I'll want but I'd like to think it would be jazz (Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins or Wynton Marsalis) hmmmmm.
