Lullaby.



Xavier's lullabies are somewhat untraditional, bordering on renegade. He is featured above using a kazoo. The amazing thing about each of his techniques is that they seem to work...babies actually like loud music and movement for sleeping. OK - I will admit - the below Thriller moves could be called into question. Still, all of our ideas about tiptoeing around have gone out the window (our pediatrician confirmed that the womb was a very noisy place indeed, so beats like these sound like home to Colette). Michael Jackson is only one variation, if you can imagine the rest.

This is fantastic! Xavier is so natural with those Michael Jackson moves...and parenting. He has a nice hair cut too.

We used to turn on the vacuum when we needed Jeffrey to calm down. As soon as it was started up, he would fall asleep. Worked like a charm.
