I have mentioned earlier that my son has been listening to classical music almost from Day 1. His first CD was Handel’s Largos which he used to fall asleep to with a huge smile on his face. Here it is.
We had this tradition almost until he turned 1. Then he started having trouble falling asleep, so in search of new strategies, we switched to stroller walks and bedtime stories. Temporarily. Now, with joy I report that as of last night, we added Handel back to our bedtime menu and he seems to remember that music. So now our evening looks like this:
Stroller walk – Dinner – Bedtime story – Lights out and quiet Handel’s Music.
For those of you who wonder, lullabies aren’t working any longer: Troy listens to the words, which keeps him wide awake.
