If a boy ever says, you remind me of someone --- don't fall in love with him. You will never be anything more than the second best. ✒Lang Leav || FOREWARNED || LULLABIES

We ❤️ Queen 🐝 . Not only is #whoruntheworld featured on our most recent compilation but we also have an entire album dedicated to #beyoncé!

Any one else think these lullabies are a life saver? Ever since Sawyer was a newborn he and I have both loved them. I'm a huge Beatles and Elton John fan, so I love that we can listen to them as sweet, soft songs for when nap time is extra tough. They never fail to do the trick. Sawyers favorite though is Can't Help Falling in Love by Elvis #momlife #toddlerlife #sahm #stayathomemom #motherhoodunplugged #motherhooduncensored #momswithcameras #motherhoodunited #momtribe #momlifeisthebestlife #mommatribe #naptime #lullabies #toddler #momoftoddlers #rockabyebaby

Singing and music play is such an important role in our culture, we find music present in many aspects of our lives: theater, television, movies, worship, holidays, celebrations, and government and military ceremonies. At home, music has become part of our family culture – a natural part of our everyday experiences. 🎼 From birth, parents instinctively use music to calm and soothe their children, to express their love and joy, and to engage and interact. But did you know that music can impact child development, improve social skills, and benefit kids of all ages?! 🎺 A 2016 study at the University of Southern California’s Brain and Creativity Institute found that musical experiences in childhood can actually accelerate brain development, particularly in the areas of language acquisition and reading skills! According to the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation (NAMM Foundation), learning to play an instrument can improve mathematical learning and even increase SAT scores. 🎹 But academic achievement isn’t the only benefit of music education and exposure. Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness: intellectual, social and emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words. Dancing to music helps children build motor skills while allowing them to practice self-expression. For children and adults, music helps strengthen memory skills. 🎸 In addition to the developmental benefits of music, why is music important? Simply put, it provides us with joy. Just think about listening to a good song on the car radio with the window down on a beautiful day. That's joy!!! 😃 . . . Is Music part of your repertoire?

This little tune feels like a lullaby. I almost fell asleep trying to choose the right tempo. Close your eyes and melt away.

She might be a big girl that goes to school now, but she’s not too big for Mama snuggles and lullabies 😍

It’s no secret that @kdaws309 and I are so proud of this tiny human we made together (ok, she did most of the work). There is nothing easy or simple about two surgeons at the end of their training raising a baby. Long hours and sleep deprivation have turned into longer hours and sleepless nights, but it’s amazing how a smile and a coo, a new thigh roll, a drooled on shirt, and an achieved milestone can make it all melt away. . Thanks @drshawnakleban for the most thoughtful onesie and sound bar image. He obviously loves both and I wish he fit into things long enough to wear more than once. . We definitely have gotten by with help, support, and love from friends and family. Cute clothes, heartfelt texts, books, and music have enriched the first few months and imbued them with overwhelming love. So grateful for all of it. . Now back to studying for written boards, reading Avett board questions while he laughs, him on my stomach, Avett Brothers playing softly in the background, while Mom watches videos on ACL repairs and sneaks secret pictures of us falling asleep. . #avettbrothers @theavettbrothers #avettgraysongoldman #musicislove #lifesoundtrack #hipsterbaby #unconventional #lullabies #withalittlehelpfrommyfriends #iandloveandyou #exhausted #powercouple #surgeonlife #medicalstudentlife #medstudentlife #ortho #plastics #worklife #balance #love #3months #tummytime #thestruggleisreal #soisthelove #soosthedrool #sleepdeprivation #customonesie #studybuddy #chubbybaby #theavettbrothers #mayitlast

Sometimes people appear in your life unexpectedly like a gift from the Universe. You didn’t even know you needed them, or that you had called out silently to them. They appear when you needed them most, to lift you, educate you, wake you up, or shine a light on your path. They sprout the seed that was in you, and patiently watch that seed emerge from the soil. Sometimes it wears them out to water and fertilize you every single day as you grow. This is a delicate time, you as the plant, and they as the nurturer. You as the plant need them for your growth, and they as your nurturer, have to have the energy to believe in your growth. Then, one day you blossom, and awaken to the beauty around you and rejoice. The only thing you ask from them anymore, is to celebrate the flower they have brought to life, and to accept the riches you now will give to them 🌱 -Riitta Klint . . .

I’m telling you, this #pandora station 👌🏼 So often “baby music” makes me 🤯, but when it’s gentle instrumentals of “grown up music,” I don’t feel like I’m going quite as crazy👍🏼 Do yourself a favor and try it out. #itsthelittlethings #momlife #pleasesleepbaby #gottadowhatyougottado #lullabies #coolmom
