Tonight, on the way home from the grocery store, Katie Anne sang a beautiful song to me. It lasted about ten minutes, and it was so stinkin' cute I almost died. We probably literally almost died because I kept looking in the rear view mirror, watching her sing and dance... she even had little movements with the song. I could not figure out what she was singing, but it definitely had a tune to it because she kept repeating it over and over.
When we got out of the car at home, I asked her to sing it for Saunders, and she gave him an abbreviated version which he immediately recognized as the ABC's. Good job, first grade teacher... it was abundantly obvious that was it once he said it! Of course, she does not make the right sounds in the right order or actually say any letters, but she's got some of them (like E) down nicely, and she really has the tune when she wants to. So, my idea was to get her to sing it again for the video camera once we got home. Since it was so late, she had to go immediately to the tub, and she wasn't that into singing it again. I did get her to do a little bit... here's the video. At the end, I think she asks for a prize! I know she asks for a cookie, which I thought was very funny. (By the way, see if you can hear when she makes her own little "musical accompaniment"... and I laugh... in the video!)
Even though she was done with her singing for the most part (which is a shame... it really was so good in the car), she did want to do her animal sounds. Here's a video of her doing some of them.
