I've Seen the Future

Sandy here:

One of the things that Doug has started doing is reading to the twinkies at bedtime. I've read that by now babies can hear things outside the womb, and it's good for Dad to talk to them. I really think they are recognizing the sound of his voice, because even if they've been quiet once he starts to read such classics to them as "That's Not my Teddy!" or "Maizy Drives" they start moving around and kicking. It's pretty cool.

Well, last night--he picked out 2 winners--Touch and Feel ABCs and Touch and Feel Animals. There was a small amount of movement, but nothing significant. After he finished he started reading Rule 901 of the Colorado Rules of Evidence (Authentication) to them (he has a trial starting tomorrow) and they started moving and kicking!

I'm going to be surrounded by lawyers.

hmmm...Interesting. I wonder how they would respond to such classics as this?

Maybe you should copy a "page turning section" for me, and I'll have Doug read it. We can raise nerds from the get-go!

They were probably just screeming I cannot take any more if this legalese.

On a serious note-when our son was born and they handed him to my husband screaming (baby, not dad), he immediately turned and got quiet when my husband spoke to him. They really do recognize the voice--he didn't do that for anyone else who held him!
Best wishes!
