Singing Songs

Georgia has a love of music, which is really fun for everyone who spends time with her because she will often break out in song.  One of her favorite songs is "The Wheels on the Bus". She inserts people/animals/things into the song. 

For example: "The Matt on the bus goes talk, talk, talk," or she might say "The baby on the bus goes eat, eat, eat". She is very peculiar about what it is we're singing about and the action they're doing. Some of her more unusual ones include, "The neck on the bus goes tickle, tickle, tickle" and "The oatmeal on the bus goes eat, eat, eat" It is a fun song to sing because most of the verses include people: Matt, Kyan, Nana, Baba, Kate, Avery, Annabelle, Nathan, Georgia, Mama, Dada, and the list can go on and on.

She is also getting really good at her ABCs. She has always loved the tune - she started singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star many months ago. Most of the time there weren't words in it.... just the tune. And then she substituted one word in the song: Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, etc (sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle). And then she did the same with Daddy. Now she sings the ABCs. Here is a video of that. Its a little noisy. I took it in the car, and I couldn't let her see my phone otherwise she would stop singing. This was taken about a month ago, and you can imagine how much better she is at it now!
