Funny Boy

We have read that the baby can now hear and recognize voices. It can especially hear women's voices due to the higher pitch. Since the poor little bugger gets to hear me yammering on all day, we make sure Adam talks to the baby a few times a day.

Before we go to sleep at night, he usually puts his mouth near my stomach and says a few general things to the baby. The other night, he was saying more and I couldn't hear him. I said to him, "What are you saying?" He turns his head without moving and says to me in a completely deadpan voice, "I wasn't talking to you." And then turns his head back to finish his "conversation." Totally cracked me up.

Who knew in 1969 and 1972 when I gave birth about all the things that you know now. I guess the doctors knew but didn't tell the mother-to-be and I guess it was less stressful that way. Anyway, you and Adam are certainly well-informed about the progress. It sounds like you are doing great and it's just a matter of time before you have all the fun in the world with BabySchnell.

P.S. As I think I told you, I am sending copies of all to Great-Grandma Ruthie and Great-Grandpa Jack so they can be included in the reading of this process too but do not have a computer. I hope it's not TMI for them. B being that besides me, they had twin boys, I'm sure they can handle it.
