Berry's Playlist

The Little One, who we've nicknamed Berry (because she started out the size of a blueberry when we started tracking her growth), loves Joe Dassin's Aux Champs Elysées song so much! I think this is her number one favorite song next to the McDonald's Filet-o-Fish jingle.

Every time we play these 2 songs, she just starts moving in my tummy, as if dancing to the upbeat tunes! But it's really Aux Champs Elysées that gets her groove going. I tried having her listen to other French songs like Serge Gainsbourg's but I don't get the same reaction from her. When I go back to playing Joe Dassin's Aux Champs Elysées, there she goes again, happily dancing to the rhythm!

We realized she loved it when Dear Hubby and I were watching The Darjeeling Limited and when this song was played, Berry just started going hyper. We had to rewind the song credits at least five times just to find out who sang this song! Haha! Luckily, Dear Hubby found the karaoke version in YouTube and now Berry and I sing to this song every chance we get!

Here are a couple more of Berry's favorite songs:
- Itsie Bitsie Spider
- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
- Ang Pasko Ay Sumapit
- some Mozart compositions, not all! But I'm not into classical so I don't know which ones, I just make her listen to the playlist in Pandora, haha!

We try singing different songs to her, and making her listen to various types of music and we found out that she really has her favorites. She reacts the same way to her favorites all the time, even after several hours or even days have passed, so it can't be coincidental. We play her favorites in between other songs, and she recognizes it! When she doesn't like a song, we don't even get a tiny kick from her, hahaha! What a funny baby!

Aww you remind me of a former coworker who nicknamed her baby Mango because it was mango-sized when she and her husband began tracking his growth!

Hi Christine! I saw your picture at Jollibee in the Chuvaness site.. Were you carrying a Gerard Darel bag? I have one kasi in this sort of lilac/lavender shade and I hardly use it because it easily gets dirty... Do you have any tips on how to take care of it and how to keep it clean?

Thank you Anon! Every one loves her nickname! =)

It is isn't it?! Every little thing she does brings us so much joy!

Thanks Mrs. Lavendula! It's fun discovering our little Berry's personality!

Heehee, thanks Cons! So they really do recognize their music! How cute!

Awww, Mango is a cute nickname too! Yeah, it's hard to name a baby in the early stages because we didn't know if baby was a boy or a girl, so we just went by the size, haha!

Hi Joni! I put up a post about your question! =)

Thanks Vanessa! And oh yes! You do call your sister Berry! How cute!

You'll meet her soon Cel! I am sure she will be delighted to meet her Tita Celine too! =)
