Today Bird and I went to our first Music Together class. I had registered for an infants' class that was to be held in Chapel Hill; not close to the house. However, it was the only infant class I could find. It didn't make.

The woman in charge suggested I try out the mixed age class and just see how it went. So we did.

He loved it.

So far, I've been doubtful as to whether or not Christopher is smiling on reflexes or because of stimuli. Today, it was clear that he was having a good time.

He lasted about 25 minutes of the 30 minute class before I had to put him up on my shoulder and "shush" out some of the other noises. He got a little overstimulated.

But man, he had fun. His eyes were open wide and he kicked along to all of the music. We had a blast.

I'm liking this mom thing more and more already.

So glad to hear you had such a great class! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Stella DATE:Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 10:16:00 PM EDT That's awesome!! :) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Liz DATE:Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 10:40:00 PM EDT We've been taking Sam (not his real name) to Music Together since he was just 6 weeks old. He loves it. We love it. We can DEFINITELY see his musicality developing--often times ahead of other stages.
I hope you continue to love's totally worth the expense. I love that it's not just "let's sit around and sing songs with our kids"--it's a full, well-studied, well-thought-out cirriculum that develops all sorts of facets of our children's musicality. And, in the long run, helps the mommys, too!
YAY for Music Together! And yay for you and Christopher! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Stimey DATE:Saturday, March 15, 2008 at 11:41:00 PM EDT I did Kindermusik and Music Together with all three of my kids when they were little. They loved it, but I think I might have had even more fun than they did.

The mom thing sure does have its moments. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Mamma DATE:Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 12:25:00 AM EDT Clearly he's his Mommy's (and Daddy's) kiddo.

So glad you both had fun. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Steph DATE:Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 8:57:00 AM EDT That's AWESOME! Im so glad he liked it!! :) ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous WhyMommy DATE:Sunday, March 16, 2008 at 3:45:00 PM EDT Glad you guys had such a good time together! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Clifford DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 1:12:00 AM EDT He clearly needs a pair of drumsticks. And open access to your cereal bowls & lampshades. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Becki DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 8:32:00 AM EDT Too fun!! I've been meaning to look into something for us - thanks for the 'prodding!' ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous katy DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 5:22:00 PM EDT I wish we had things like that around here when my kids were young but we don't have anything like that.....unless you count sitting outside and counting stars while the crickets chirp. I guess that is kind of musical. My kids grew up having to listen to me sing, but I guess they both lived through it and my son has an awesome voice....unlike his mother. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous gail DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 7:08:00 PM EDT Just fab.... I am glad you had a nice time. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Gerbil DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 10:48:00 PM EDT The world always needs more music lovers. ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Tiffany DATE:Monday, March 17, 2008 at 11:06:00 PM EDT That is so cool!! I'm glad you had a good time!

I posted some pictures of P on my blog just for you! :) ----- --------
