Lately, Jules has been actively participating in singing and signing nursery rhymes. She belts out a few words here and there letting me know she anticipates them and acts out the appropriate gestures. Itsy Bitsy Spider was her favorite for the longest time, but we've graduated to Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star, Ring Around the Rosie and Pat-a-Cake.
On one particularly creative occasion she made up her own little tune, which went something like this:
"Row, row, row!
Up in the sky!
Open, Shut them, Open, Shut them!"
The lyrics from three different songs, strung together without missing a beat.
Today, quite unexpectedly, she began to sing The Alphabet Song. I was able to catch some of the cuteness on video.
