Love Thursday: Singing

Monday, January 26th, 2009
Ok, so technically it’s nowhere near Thursday. But I’ve been meaning to write this one for the last two Thursdays and just haven’t managed it till now =) I LOVE singing. =) Unfortunately, I’m not that good at it. I had lots of ear infections when I was little and apparently it messed up my hearing, as I’m fairly tone deaf now. (although I’m told I used to sing fine. =) Anyway, I love singing, but I mostly do it alone as I don’t want to inflict my vocal issues on others. But now that I have Serenity, I get to sing ALL the time! She doesn’t care if my voice isn’t perfect, she loves to hear me sing! I sing play songs like “If You’re Happy and You Know It Clap Your Hands”, “I’m a Little Teapot” or the “Itsy Bitsy Spider.” I sing her to sleep with songs like “Twinkle Twinkle” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.” Mary Poppins is some of her favorite music, thanks to her Daddy who started us all singing it. I even sing in public now as I sing to Serenity even when we’re on our walks. We’re in our own little world so I just go for it. I love it, it makes me so happy. =) Now that we have a guitar, I hope to play and sing =) And I sing just a little bit better when I have a note to follow, so that’s a plus too. Now if I can just figure out how to tune my guitar without begging David to come over and help =)

Solid Foods! Serenity has taken to solid foods very well! We started applesauce last Friday. Her face was priceless! She scrunched it up like the applesauce was very tart. She kept opening her mouth for several more bites! By the next day, she was devouring the applesauce! She opens her mouth wide, sometimes even before I get the spoon back to the bowl! And she’s such a neat eater I’ve started letting her just sit loose on the floor with no bib. Although for sweet potato I took all her clothes off as there’s just no way to be neat with bright orange food. She took the first two bites of sweet potato, and then she spit a little (booof) Daddy laughed but Mama said no spitting =) I just had visions of getting sprayed with orange goop at every meal so I resisted, no matter how cute it was =)
