Post-nap Singing Time

June 12, 2008 at 8:42 am 28 comments

Orison has always been a squawker after nap, even from his earliest days. When he was a baby, it was happy coos, then progressed into babbling, which eventually developed into musical-sounding tunes as he discovered the glorious gift of pitch. It’s almost as though when he discovered his voice a little light went on and he said, “Wow, I can do anything with this!”

Now that he’s older, whoever gets him up from nap is often treated to some funny musical renderings outside his door. This is what we listened to yesterday:

    OK. That is just ridiculously cute. I like the song variety!

    Between videos like that and pictures of Abraham in mid-flight, you’ve made me laugh a few times. Thanks!

    Oh that was fun!! What an adorable habit – much better than other attitudes he could wake up with. πŸ™‚
    I guess he likes baseball. That part really cracked me up. My kids wouldn’t have a clue about the words to that song. πŸ™‚

  • 22. robyn  |  June 13, 2008 at 11:13 am

    wait, now why does he love “we will rock you” how does he even know that song. this is really hysterical.

    i love the last part when you start laughing.

  • 23. shawnda  |  June 13, 2008 at 12:25 pm

  • 24. Sunshine  |  June 13, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    HILARIOUS! I think that has to be the funniest thing I have seen in a LONG time – I especially love the we will rock you (clap clap) !

  • 25. Tiffany  |  June 14, 2008 at 8:39 am

    I love it!! How did you control your laughter for as long as you did? Very very funny and so cute! He reminds met of Jeneva. She sings ALL OF THE TIME (even on tune). Funny thing is that the rest of us are so very un-musical. Love it.

  • 26. Becoming Me  |  June 14, 2008 at 8:24 pm

    That is so precious. My four-year-old daughter loves to make up similar songs. So beautiful and sweet.

  • 27. Janine  |  July 10, 2008 at 5:56 am

    That was AWESOME! My oldest son Aidan loves to make up songs. I can’t seem to get them on video though. He always sees me with the camera and stops.

  • 28. citystreams  |  July 17, 2008 at 8:37 am

    That’s absolutely ADORABLE! Bri loves to play with her voice too. I can’t wait until she can make up her own songs.
