'Goodnight, to every little hour that you sleep tite...'
Mrs L's tummy has been hosting a little party over the last couple of weeks. Little L has reached the point where he is exploring the use of his hands, and he's letting his mummy know about it! He's really reacting to sound now too. So much so that I think he's a Bob Dylan fan.
Last night I felt him move for the very first time! It was amazing, one of the best things I've ever experienced. It was just a ripple on her tummy, but enough to let us know he's there!
I'm also trying to imagine what he'll look like, whether he'll be more like me or his mum, and who he'll take after personality wise. Not long till we find out...
We've noticed that Smashing Pumpkins are getting played a lot at the moment. Their quieter moments are so richly textured and soothing, they just seem perfect for this exercise.
Here's his latest playlist. I'm also now thinking of full albums that would be suitable for him to listen to...
Marie Floating Over The Backyard - Eels
Falling Down - Oasis
Wonderwall - Ryan Adams
Every Grain Of Sand - Bob Dylan
Secret Garden - Bruce Springsteen

* This is the song that was playing when I felt him move!
