Holy moly we had another amazing day!! Is this real life?? (If you've never seen "David After Dentist," YouTube it. Hilarious!) It may be a cooincidence but i think the one month mark might have been a turning point for us.
David has always been a very romantic guy (poetry, "Happy Tuesday" flowers just because, a promise ring when I was 17, the list goes on and on). The most romantic thing he's ever done to date was on our wedding day.
We walked onto the dance floor for our first dance, planning on dancing to the song that we had deemed "ours" in high school, when all of the sudden the music slowed and stopped. Just when I had thought our first dance had been ruined, another song started to play. I'll let this video show you the rest:
He wrote and recorded a song for me and surprised me with it. I had never felt so special (or lucky)! Now it is our song.
Before we got pregnant, we had heard that babies who hear certain songs in utero will often recognize them when played after birth. We decided to use our song to test this theory. We played "Thank You For Loving Me" for Ayden while I was pregnant several times a week. We got the chance to try it for the first time when he was upset in the hospital and it was magical. The intro to the song alone was enough to calm him. We still use it now when he's upset and we need a little something extra to help us calm him. It still works like a charm as long as he's not too far gone ;).
It's just so awesome that a song that is so special to us is also so special to him. I wonder if it will always be one of his favorites...
