I have always loved singing. With a baby in the house, the amount of singing has probably increased though the genre of music has definitely changed. Brian and I are both having to relearn the lyrics to many different lullabies and silly kids songs. Jake really seems to like "I know an old lady who swallowed a fly" and "the ants go marching one by one"--especially when Daddy sings it to him. We're also noticing how much more vocal our boy is, though sometimes in surprising ways. The last couple of days, especially when he's in a calm state before putting him down for bed (though the two aren't always synonymous!), Jake appears to be singing a vocal duet with whichever parent is singing to him. It's adorable! Maybe the little tyke will be a music lover as well.
