I've always made a point of singing to John, especially at night before bed, but it's been so fun singing with him. He just plain LOVES to sing! John's vocal repertoire includes the ABC song, "The Itsy Bitsy Spider," " Jingle Bells," "Old McDonald," "Peanut butter and jelly" (see next video), "Three Blind Mice," and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." Ask him to sing you one of these songs, and he'll belt it out at the top of his lungs. You're really in for a treat if he's got the "tar" in front of him too.
So those are the highlights of 22 months.....I will hopefully have the chance to do a 23-month post in the next week or so. It's got to get done before John turns 2!
Some other photos from that wonderful day:
Mommy and Lila getting ready to be wheeled out of the hospital that morning.....
Grandma Bonnie holding her granddaughter for the first time out of the hospital.....
And, by the time I took these next photos, Grandma Bonnie and Grandma Kay had already whisked John out of the NICU to keep him from pulling on the cords of the other patients' beds. Here's Lila in the little Halloween outfit the nurses put on her! (She had a knitted pumpkin hat, too, that we took off.)
