Theo's First Song

Saturday morning Theo woke up from a good night's sleep and was at full learning capacity.

He brought out his Magna Doodle and I drew a cake with candles. He sang Happy Birthday and blew out the candles.

Happy Birthday is the first song Theo has ever really sung. On his own, from beginning to end. His pitch is great, he just misses consonants and syllables in between. Until I can post a recording, the best I can do is try to write it out, but it's not really the same.

Just imagine a big smile on his face as he breaks out with:

Hah Ay ee yoooooou
Hah Ay ee yoooooou
Hah Ay eeeeeeeooooooooooo(Theo)
Hah Ay ee yoooooou

It's very clear what he's singing. The other day his uncle John knew he was singing it without being told beforehand.

Saturday night we were watching Cinderella Man and Theo looked up from playing when kids were singing that song in a scene. Joe and I cracked up when, after the song was over, Theo resumed playing.

It's hilarious the way Theo breaks into singing Happy Birthday with the slightest reminder. A picture of a birthday cake, a scene from a TV show, it doesn't take much. It's also just as funny to see him quickly resume whatever it was he was doing before he was reminded!
