Music Moves Me

Jack is loving music more and more. He has even started to "narrate" his day through song. His conversational skills have also taken off. Here are a few examples of common Jack phrases these days, with a video montage of made up and parts of "real" songs at the end.

These days, Jack can say:

Uh, oh? Where'd it go? I don't know!/ Here is!

Oh, no! What happened? [usually after doing something like dumping out a bucket of toys]

No, I don't want any/No, I don't want some.

Mama (Gigi, Papa, etc.) come on!

Let's do it!

Mmmmm, it's good!

What dat?/ What dis?

Come on! Wet's go!

He Papa (Grandpa)/ He Meemaw (Grandma)/ He Mama [while pointing people out... right now "he" can mean he, she, or you!]

One, Two, Free, Four [sung as he marches around] or March! March!

I sorwy. [used appropriately only sometimes, but so darn cute]

Where phone? [when it rings] ball? ehfant [elephant]?

And, the other day in the car I hear him count to 10 all by himself with no prompting!

He's also loving talking to my tummy. I have some precious video, but I'm not sure I'm ready for the world to view my very stretched out stomach! A typical "conversation sounds like this:

Where Carnie (Charlie). [lifts shirt] Dere is! [gives lots of kisses and hugs]Ahhhh. Nice baby. Huuuuug!

[sings the Barney song to my tummy] I love you...

Bye bye, baby. [Said to little brother as he puts my shirt back down] Where baby go?

Rinse, Repeat

And the video you've been waiting for:

You have a wonderful voice, Jack! Next time we are together, I think you should sing and Eli will dance! We could take some fun video, too!
