Elmo P

Layla's new phrase, "ooooo....I love this...this is MY favorite".  She says it about cereal, juice, milk, milk cups, the colors pink, red and yellow--really just about anything that she likes at the moment.  Last week when I was getting her ready for bed, she grabbed my face...looked at me and said, "I love you...my favorite mommy".  Yeah, my heart turned into a great big pile of mush.  I reminded myself of this moment several times this week when we were battling over diapers and getting dressed.  I have a feeling that I'm going to look back at this stage of her life and find it very strange.

So...I guess thanks to Rachel's little ABC video....and mommy singing ABCs as a night night song (until Layla looked at me and said, "no mommy, not like this song") Layla is now singing her ABCs like crazy.  The first time she said them all together, I squealed with excitement.  And who knew that it was actually "Elmo, P" instead of "L, M, N, O, P"  HA!  The funny thing is that she is starting to really recognize the letters and know that "L" is for Layla, "M" is for mommy, "B" is for Bradyn and of course, "C" is for Chi--which translates into a request for doughnuts.  

Anyway so here's a video (forgive me..its on my camera and not an actually video camera...so the quality is not so great) of her ABCs.

Finally...despite the forecast for ice and snow...dad and I have plans to lace up our shoes this afternoon.  NUTS O!  At least there is one other person on this Earth as crazy as me :-)

YAY Layla!!! She's so smart! I love the way she is multi-tasking...singing her ABC's while moving her baby to a different location. My favorite part would have to be the higher pitch "ME" at the end!! Who wouldn't want to sing with her after that original version?

wow that's great!!! she's a lot younger than rachel was when she finally learned to spit out the ABC's in the right order. very impressive.
