Must be something about pregnancy.
I remember having "Exciter" on high rotation during the incubation of 2004.
I kept a website for baby then ( pre-blogging days ) and noted:
" We enjoy our morning ride to work ( anyone that knows me knows I like my car music up LOUD ) and I try and judge my baby's tastes on the kick-o-meter scale.
Baby likes Dionne Warwick singing "Do you know the Way to San Jose" ( yeah, I know .. ), The Strokes, The White Stripes, a bit of Robbie Williams .. um ... I was a bit disappointed in the reaction to Depeche Mode ( luke-warm ), although we do like a bit of vintage "Personal Jesus".
I remembered this this morning, when I found myself on You-Tube ( how I got to Depeche Mode from a link to Jo Kennedy singing Body & Soul is another matter ) playing and singing along to "Enjoy the Silence" .. which was only then a short stroll to "Personal Jesus".
The unborn seemed impressed. I like a baby with good musical taste.
We don't own any Wiggles CD's here.
The first child, and now self-proclaimed 'Big Boy' still loves his music and gets quite upset with his father in the car for selecting Sports Radio SEN over "MUMMY'S MUSIC PLEASE !" ( he yells from the back ).
I love it. My own support/cheer squad.
Yesterday we had a bit of a boogie in the front room ( apologies to anyone walking by - we're yet to get screening type shrubbery to protect you from my image ). The favourite CD for the boy ATM is the Scissor Sisters, which he calls the "Barbershop Songs".
The image of a big fat momma dancing to "Take Your Mama Out" must have been a treat.
So this pregnancy has been a carbon-copy of the first in every way.
I said to the husband last night I would be so shocked if this new child doesn't look and act *exactly* the same way the firstborn did.
I'm carrying the same, have put the same amount of weight on ( 20kgs ! ), drink about a litre of OJ every day, and feel fine.
I could do WITHOUT a carbon-copy labour though.
I'm kinda hoping the baby will just slip out on the floor in an 'oopsie!' kinda moment. ha !
ha ! ha !
Well, I can wish, can't I ? ............
