Singing Fools

Since Miss A was born Peter and I have sung to her. Sometimes we sang real actual songs and sometimes made up ones. For instance “You're the best, you're the best, you're the best pooper ever.” We wrote that one in honor of her weekly poop. We were hoping it would make her poop more often. It might have had the opposite effect... Anyway we both love music and seem to have passed that love on to her. When the television is on in the background she'll always turn and look as soon as there is music. If she is fed up with being in the car a quick rendition of “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” usually makes her stop screaming.

And of course there are the Baby Einstein videos. She has watched these since she was four months old and seen them all a multitude of times. The other day the three of us were watching Baby Beethoven together. Peter and I started singing the “Hallelujah!” chorus and suddenly A was singing it too. Only it was more like “Aaaalala.”. But of course being the proud and ridiculous parents that we are we kept prompting and encouraging. She kept singing. So we whipped out the video camera. We haven't put anything up on YouTube since my television interview so I thought it was time. Also captured in this video is her new favorite hobby of stuffing her fake food down her shirt. The other day I found her fake green beans in the toe of her pajamas. You'll also notice her hamming it up when she realizes she's on camera. That was a new one. I guess that means it will be more challenging to catch her in a candid moment. Once she sees the camera she'll be all like “Hey look at me, I'm so funny and cute!” “Look what I can do!

Enjoy!

I laughed right out loud, that Halleluja was so DANG CUTE! And I wonder what is the thought process that inspires the tucking away of plastic foodstuffs?

Next, I am requesting a YouTubed version of the pooping song... preferrably done as a duet: Peter and Mama D.
