Ellie has recently begun singing independently and I love hearing her versions of the songs that we sing.
“Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” is a current favorite of hers. This is crazy to me because I hardly ever sing it to her – basically,we sing it once a week at playgroup. (And that is a good reminder why I probably shouldn’t even bother trying to get her to talk like me!) This video is from about a week ago. She now adds in a few more words (like, “sky”) but the substance remains the same.
“The Itsy Bitsy Spider” is also a favorite around here but we rarely sing it with the word spider in it. Generally, we sing about a very small Mama, Baba, Ellie, Baby, Pappou, or Yiayia. It’s much more fun that way!
