So now that I am beyond 20 weeks (officially 21, when/how did that happen?), I was reading up on what my child is up to. He is the size of a banana*. He can hear us. When I heard this I thought two things:

1- I should watch my mouth in traffic
2- My kid is going to hear the music I listen to

So more about #2. I feel like now I not only have the itunes 'most played' working against any kind of musical cred I have, I now have another witness to my secret musical desires. For example:

Here is a playlist that I enjoy listening to:

and here is a playlist I REALLY enjoy listening to:

Time to surrender and embrace the cheese. Apparently, I will always be a pop punk/eighties girl at heart.

* I was talking with my best friend the other day and we were talking about the listeria outbreak. She said when she heard them talking about it on the radio, she really wanted a cantaloupe. I love her. Also, the last couple weeks babble has been suggesting my baby is a pile of fruits. 3 limes? 5 tangerines? What the heck is that?

One more thing, CONGRATS SARAH!!!!!!! So happy for you and Tony!


  1. I love your second playlist.

    No shame!

  2. You always have the best playlists! And my "guilty pleasures" music choices are waaaaaay worse than this!

    P.S. it kind of disturbs me when people compare babies to fruits. Like it would make someone want to eat them.

  3. Haha, you have such great taste in music!

    And umm...a PILE of fruits? That's ridiculous.

  4. I love you! What time did you call last night? I didn't even hear the phone ring! Sorry!

  5. The fruit thing must be new. I don't remember size comparisons to fruit? Weird.

    I find it hard to believe that his entire body is the size of a banana when his junk looked about that size. :D Also, I apologize for discussing your son's junk on the Internet.
