I have always loved the Sound of Music since I was a little girl...I just loved to sing and this is just the ultimate musical. I either wanted to be just like Julie Andrews as a little girl, so I sang all the time. Pretty much any hairbrush or remote in sight became an instant microphone. My poor sister had to be my audience many a night as I sang away.
I guess I get my love of music from my parents. They have always sung in the church choir while I was growing up and really encouraged me to play piano and sing.
We definitely hope to instill a love of the Lord (#1) and a love of music in our children, so it has been fun to watch Elijah respond to music as enthusiastically as he has.
Like I said yesterday, my mom came to watch Elijah for me on Thursday night. Before I left, she was entertaining Elijah with (her rendition of) Do, a Deer since Justin and I have been singing solfege to him so much. My sister and I always kid my mom about having her own dictionary because she can make up some interesting words. This apparently rings true in her songs, too.
She knows I took some pictures, but I don't think my mom knew I was video taping her. Sorry mom!! You and Justin are the ones who have made it on my blog singing....way to go!! Without further ado....Do, a deer....
