A new diaper gets filled pretty much every hour (my department) and he loudly demands food every couple of hours (Tannis's department). In between those times he naps and hangs out. Seems to like the beach. He's actually done a decent stretch of sleep the last few nights -- from about 8:30pm-3:30am. The fact that I just wrote that means it will never happen again. Ever.
His favourite music isn't even a contest: Lullaby Renditions of Nine Inch Nails, which was perhaps the most awesome baby gift of all time (Punk Unc' Bill). Seriously...Head Like a Hole, Hurt (mp3), and Something I Can Never Have were truly destined to be transformed into "beautiful instrumental lullabies" using glockenspiels and vibraphones. If anyone's looking for something to put in my Christmas stocking this year, it's
the Metallica version. I can see why people would assume something like this:
"...I don't know how effective they would be as lullabies -- the music of folks like Metallica and Nine Inch Nails sometimes feature jarring chord progressions and dissonant intervals that, when played 'lullabye' style, sound more suitable for an 'Omen'-like evil-kid horror movie soundtrack then anything you would actually want to use for lulling your beloved tots to sleep."But the proof's in the pudding -- Ezra fell asleep TWICE to this album yesterday, and I was stoked.
