This coming Sunday (August 16) is the anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death. I happen to be a really big Elvis fan, especially for his ability to soothe even the most difficult audience with his music. Cooper was a pretty tough baby; he cried a lot. Somewhere along the way, I got a videotape of Elvis in Hawaii. We put that on and he LOVED it! I mean, he would watch the full two hours nonstop. We eventually got him a fake guitar, and he’d sing along with Elvis. He just loved watching that movie. So now, several years later, he knows a lot of Elvis songs. The funny thing is that one of Shannon’s friends also had a crying baby. We told them about the Elvis tape. They got one, and it worked like magic. The baby calmed down for the entire tape, and he watched it every day.
Got any Elvis stories of your own? We’d loved to hear them!
