The First of 'The Lasts'

Wednesday night was my last concert with the Juilliard Choral Union. It was also my last day of choir, as I won't be coming back to rehearsals after the New Year. This was my third year with the chorus, and it really was so much fun and a fantastic experience. I've gotten to sing a huge variety of music, in several famous venues.

It kind of snuck up on me, actually. This is the first thing I've 'stopped' doing since getting pregnant, but I know it's only the beginning. It was rather bittersweet, as I am really getting tired these days and it's just hard to make it through the work day sometimes, let alone sing for 3 hours straight. But I will miss singing on a weekly basis, and miss the friends I've made.

Now I'll have to satisify my need to sing in church, and singing to my little guy! Although I think he prefers Bubba's voice to mine, as he definitely kicks more when Bubba sings to him than when I do!

You haven't stopped drinking yet?

The Tater kicks when Bubba sings because he's in distress! He's thinking..."Make that guy stop! Pleez!"

I kick when Bubba sings too.

Hey! I didn't know that this was your last performance before a baby hiatus! I'm even happier now to have seen you perform. It was quite a show, and Wes and I both agreed that it really helped to put us in the Christmas spirit, much more than anything else yet. We loved to be able to see you sing, and to visit you guys while you're still up there! And... you can also sing at our wedding! See, now you've already got another performance lined up! Love and merry christmas,

Nope, Bubba's Sis! I still take a little 'nip' when the occasion arises! Nothing like a little red wine to put my little guy right to sleep!

I'm with Bubba's Sis, the kicking when Bubba sings isn't appreciation. At best, the little guy is trying to correct daddy on the lyrics. :)
