Sing, sing a song, sing out loud, sing out strong!

The girls are becoming quite the little song birds. I've mentioned before how Abby likes to sing -  Natalie has been singing more of late as well.  We have finally progressed past just the ABC's and onto other selections.  We can sing most of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and Jesus Loves Me.  And, I'm not so very proud to say, they now know the theme song to Wonder Pets.  They also picked up pretty quickly on Jingle Bells when I had it on in the car.

The songs sometimes mix all together.  It's very common to start with ABC's and finish with Wonder Pets.  Or, start with anything and end with the ABC's.  In fact, the ABC song is just as often as not started somewhere in the middle, LMNOP or QRS seem to be popular starting points for Abby.  She also frequently mixes talking and singing, especially when playing alone with her babies in her bed.  The ABC's also seem to act as a comfort item for her.  It's really pretty funny.  Abby will be in the middle of whining or crying about something and she's "Mommy, whine, whine, A B C LMNOP...cry...cry".  I can't help but laugh at her.  She's a pretty funny little kid.

Natalie has her funny things too.  One thing she likes to do is make a production about leaving a room.  She'll start to walk out and then turn around and wave with a grin, "bye mommy, bye mommy, bye mommy".  It's hilarious.  Then she'll come right back in, "hi mommy, hi mommy."  The girls do it to each other in play as well.  "Bye, Abby, Bye Abby".  The other day, she was doing it in the bath tub.  She took her little pail of water and started towards the back on the tub, "bye, bye, bye".  I asked her if she was going on a trip.  She said, "yes."  So, so  funny.
