There is nothing more special than seeing a baby who becomes captivated by music everytime they hear it! My sweet sweet 10 month old Laiden has been in love with music since i was pregnant with him! I have always loves music and even when i was pregnant i would have it turned way up in the car and i could feel laiden kick and do flips everytime i had music on... and even now when he hears any kind of music he stops whatever he is doing and stares in the direction of the music and sometimes he will sing along and dance. But my favorite thing to do is start playing music while he is i the bath tub.... he drops his toys, lets out a huge yell, stands up, and tries to find out where the music is coming from. I am really hoping and praying that his love of music will continue as he grows up and that his love will continue to grow as he does. The magic i see in his little eyes when he hears music is just amazing and knowing that i put that big smile on his face when i play the music is the most amazing feeling in the world!!!

people always ask me, "do you ever sleep"? The answer to that question is absolutely not!!! Then i explain that being pregnant and having a child changes things... especially the sleep thing... i spend most of my nights wondering how bills will be paid, what needs to be done around the house, going back to school, and stressing over how to make everyone in my life happy... but some nights i say "screw it" to all of my stress and i turn to music.. alll types of music. This is my way of escaping into someone elses world for a little while and i forget all about mine... that is until the baby wakes up! my night of staying up and listening to my music is not only for my entertainment at 2 a.m. but it is also my therapy and possibly the thing that keeps me sane!!
