Being that this is the week that our baby can begin deciphering our voices, my wife half-jokingly told me to talk to her stomach. But as I guy, what do I say to baby who doesn’t understand what I am saying, who just hears a blurry bass tone?
I became Daddy DJ:
“Helloooooo baby… I am yo Daddy. I will be taking care of you, along with your mother. As for tonight, I’m gonna set the mood right for helping you fall asleep…”
Then I begin singing a Barry White version of the first Hall & Oates song that comes to mind, which is usually “You Make My Dreams” or “Maneater” or “Out of Touch”.
*Note: Thursday marks the first day of the new week for our baby. I’ll probably be posting another one of these pretty soon, but it will be for the next week, not two in the same week.
The Bump Says:
Watch what you say… tiny bones forming in baby’s ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you’re interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender.
