Finally! I finally got to buy CDs for Zeeka. I’ve long been searching for a CD that contains Nursery Rhymes for her to listen to in the morning and in the afternoon. I finally found one at Odyssey in market market.
I actually bought four CDs. I also got her a CD with Filipino songs and two other CDs filled with classical music.
Zeeka loves music. Every time I feed her, she calms down each time I sing Rock-a-bye baby. For those who don’t remember the lyrics, here it is.
Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all
Baby is drowsing, cozy and fair
Mother sits near, in her rocking chair
Forward and back, the cradle she swings
And though baby sleeps, he hears what she sings
From the high rooftops, down to the sea
No one’s as dear, as baby to me
Wee little fingers, eyes wide and bright
Now sound asleep, until morning light.
I actually didn’t know that there were words after “And down will come baby, cradle and all”. My mom told me, that when I was little, I used to know all of the words of these nursery rhymes. I wonder if Baby Zeeka would be like me?
What do sing to your baby? What nursery rhymes does she react to positively?
Oh, by the way, for those looking for a CD player like this (EJ and I had to buy this for her room), you can go to SM appliance. We got this Philips CD player. It was less than Php 2500. This model also comes in different colors. We wanted the green one to have it match Zeeka’s room, but the store didn’t have stock. We got the silver one instead.
Hope this helps first time parents who are looking for CDs and CD players 🙂
