She has enjoyed songs from day one and as she grows, her love for music grows even more. She learns different songs quite fast and easily and to top this off, she composes her own songs :) I love to watch her hum or sing different songs while she plays or "read" books on her own. She also cracks me up when she tries to rephrase the lyics of the songs. Here's a sample how she rephrases songs:
Song: Arañita Pequeñita (to the tune of The Eensy Weensy Spider)
note: I am writing the english lyrics in direct translation of the spanish song and not how the song is sang in english
Original: La arañita pequeñita, lo alto se subio (The eensy weensy spider, so high it went up)
Her version: La arañita pequeñita, alto subio
Original: Pero vino la lluvia, al suelo se cayó (But the rain came, on to the floor it fell)
Her version: mmmm vino lluvia, y cayó y lloró! (mmmm out came the rain, and it fell and it cried!)
I died of her silliness and cuteness and then I was resurrected and then died all over again!
Lately, she's really getting into singing that she has started belting it out. I always wanted to take a video of her but she'd get all shy and annoyed and wouldn't let me. The other day though, while we were camped out at my inlaw's house, she miraculously didn't mind mami taking her video... I think she was even enjoying the limelight!
I'll end this post sharing with you some of the my-now-treasured-videos (I shall make tons of backups of these!). Have fun and be prepared for ear-piercing vocal belting.
and here is the one where she's showing her own style playing the guitar :)
Have a nice week ahead!
