Exciting times. My wife Lisa and I are expecting our first child in August. We had our 2nd scan on Tuesday and everything is fine with baby. We also now know that it's a boy!
We're reaching the stage now where baby is able to hear, so I've begun to select some tunes for baby to listen to. I've tried to go for songs that not only mean something to either me or Mrs L, but make for interesting pieces of music with sounds that baby can hopefully engage with.
There are two intended outcomes:
1) When baby comes out and is having a rough time of it ie. wailing in the middle of the night, some familiar sounds might help to soothe him
2) He will hit the ground running in terms of good music taste!
Lisa has begun to experience the 'flutters' that will soon become kicks! She says it feels 'like a bouncy ball' bouncing around her tummy! She experienced a couple of these sensations while we were playing these songs to him.
So here are the songs that we played to baby in our inaugural music session last night:
Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys
I Get Around - The Beach Boys
Live Forever - Oasis
Series Of Dreams - Bob Dylan
Detlef Schrempf - Band Of Horses*
When You Dream - Barenaked Ladies
Birdhouse In Your Soul - They Might Be Giants
New Life - Depeche Mode*
Station Approach - Elbow
