Singing

I sing Rebecca to sleep every night, yah, she's going to grow up to be an insecure axe murderer, whatever, she sleeps in our room still too, and I like it, but that's not what I wanted to talk about. :-) So I sing Rebecca to sleep, and a couple of weeks, or a month, ago, she started asking specifically for row-row, and being so pleased that she could influence the song selection. Now Row row row your boat is old hat, and she wants "up above so high", otherwise known as "Twinkle Twinkle", that took me a little while to figure out, especially since it sounded more like "up mumble mumble high".

Last night she sang a whole song by herself at the dinner table. Well, I have no idea if it is a whole song, but it goes "Seesaw seesaw seesaw up and down" and she leans back and forth when she says seesaw and goes up and down when she says up and down. Pretty cute. And funny that I haven't ever heard it before, I assume she learned it at daycare. It sounds like "Tic-toc tic-toc now we're striking one o'clock" or "nanny nanny boo boo", but lots of nursery rhyme songs use the same melodies.

Fun to watch the progress. Tired now. Oh, she's also learning to collect acorns in her pockets.
