James Taylor, Colbie Caillat, & Coldplay

I am very pleased with my daughters seeming appreciation for music. She glances with bright eyes and bounces her body and head when she hears the tunes and melodies. She has taken a particular liking to James Taylor, Colbie Caillat, and Coldplay. We'll be listening to some John Mayer and James Yorkston later and will see her reaction to them as well.

James Taylor....very impressive.

Clearly you've got a classy girl on your hands.

Heather M said...

Awww... a girl after my own heart! I was wondering if maybe she was available to go to a Colbie Caillat concert this summer? No, too young? Well, tell her to call me when she's up for some live music!

she was head banging in the stroller when we went to the Grove for a picnic today.

And when she taps her foot she keeps a good beat. Steph and I think she will be a drummer in a rock band.

you should start having her listen to some jazz. it will make her a better musician.

Pat Metheny Group- The Way Up

It's a 65 minute composition of genius.

it is also very relaxing too.

I think coldplay is a great start to her musical taste.

Certainly Kyla is going to be quite a cultured and sophisticated lady with one of these days, with parents who emanate those very qualities.

dude...I hope Olivia likes sweet music...I don't really know how she wouldn't and if she starts to slide Kyla can keep her in check!

One of my proudest days in the Fall was in writing in Zane's answers to his preschool "favorite things" paper and for favorite song he said, Josh Ritter, "The Snow is Gone"...Amen and amen.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
