Loud apartment

My 23-week status report on Baby Center yesterday said that, at this stage, “Loud noises heard often in utero — such as your dog barking or the roar of a vacuum cleaner — probably won’t faze your baby when he hears them outside the womb.” I can only hope that also applies to the yard guys that are here for an hour and a half every Monday morning and to the jackhammering from the construction site next door, which on Friday went on for a full eight hours (continuing at 8:30 a.m. Saturday and starting up at just about 9:00 this morning). On the other hand, we have discovered that Nathan’s room is the quietest part of the apartment, somewhat sheltered from all of these noises. So hopefully between the in-utero desensitization and the quiet room, he’ll sleep well when he arrives.

    Maybe this is the time to introduce Nathan to R.E.M. You know, to drown out the jackhammers.

    While she was in-utero, Emily and I used to put music on when Kale would be gone and we’d dance together . Could this explain why she now asks to hear Bob Marley songs when we’re in the car together? I think so! And also explains why she falls asleep at her school during nap time with the music blaring.
