Womb Propaganda

Okay, we are still on vacation, but I thought I'd let you in on the latest development. 

We learned, that as we are in our 16th week of pregnancy, our baby has likely developed his/her ears and can hear voices, sounds, etc. 

Immediately upon learning this, Eric went to work educating our unborn child. First, he told him/her that they were to be a duck fan. Second, he tried to insist that University of Oregon was the best school. I quickly corrected that notion with the reminder that God's University itself, was indeed, the best school. 

We went shooting with the cousins, aunt and uncles yesterday. I was especially excited about the .38 special revolver and enjoyed sitting by the firing line just feeling the shots shake my whole body, Eric is concerned that perhaps our little one will now be born deaf. 

And this morning I've been playing music especially tailored to develop my child's great taste in music. On the spin table this morning? The Black Keys, Etta James, Florence + The Machine and She & Him. 

Any other suggestions for in-the-womb brain washing? 

While you're thinking, I'm going to get back to vacation. It's been de-light-ful!

As a teacher, you better be reading this baby some well chosen children's literature ;) Good choice in music friend. Glad that you are having such a wonderful vacation, you deserve it.
