The Swan

My dear baby daughter,
We were driving to the store yesterday, listening to your Baby's First Classical CD, when a song that I particularly enjoy came on.  I was just smiling with pleasure when you gave a contented sigh, as if you were also relaxing into the soothing music.
It was a magical moment, so after we came home, I found the song on YouTube: It is The Swan, by Saint-Saens. This version is performed by Yo-Yo Ma. I held you in arms, and we both watched the video intently. Yo-Yo Ma is quite a performer. His whole body vibrates to the music, like he is a soundboard for the cello.
How wonderful it is to enjoy music with my little princess!
