Old McDonald

Nicole stayed with Miranda yesterday while Matt and I went off to work. When I went to pick her up, Miranda told me that Nicole had been attempting to sing Old McDonald. So, Matt and I decided to try and get her to sing it while we were running errands yesterday. Matt started singing it and Nicole told him, "No, no, no, no!"

A couple minutes later, we hear Nicole in the back of the car... "Eieio, chicken! Bock, bock, bock. And, bock, bock, bock. Chicken! Eieio." It was hilarious! She didn't want us to sing the song, she just wanted to sing it herself and she had many of the key components though not always in the same order. She also did "Ssssss, sssss, ssss," for the snake and, "Moo, moo, moo," for the cow. It was so stinkin cute!

She is so smart and knows more words than I can count. She is constantly surprising us. I also sang the ABC song to her last night and then she attempted to sing it on her own. It went something like this, "C, N, N, N, N, P, Me!" She only went for the parts she remembered, but it was so cute. When I attempted to cheer for her when I thought that she was done singing, she got very mad at me, "No, no, no!" And then she went on to babble about how she was not done singing. (A lot of times her words get mixed together, but we get the gist of what she is attempting to say.)

Nicole loves to talk, mostly to herself. She just babbles nonsense and tells me things which she obviously finds important even though I don't know what she is talking about. I love this little girl so much! Even though I miss the baby phase of her life, this toddler phase is a whole lot of fun! Even though she is often very sassy to me now that she can tell me no.

It is so cool when they are old enough to remember things. I love Nicole's little voice and the way she babbles.

I love it when they start to get interested in songs. Alexis has a "playlist" (so to speak) of songs we simply HAVE to sing at bedtime. She does the "no no no" thing, too. Have fun singing!
