DF has proved himself to be a very good singer. Not tunes so much yet (though he has the gist!) but even before he turns two, he is good with the words. Yesterday in the car I told the FP Gal that I'd caught him singing Happy Birthday to himself. I turned and sang him the first phrase and he did the second. Then he asked me to sing so I did. I didn't know who to dedicate the song to so I waited there to see what he'd say. It went like this:

Me: Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear . . . (pause)
DF: (pause) Cake!
Together: Happy birthday to you!

He doesn't know all of the traditions but he knows to ask for cake. Tonight in the tub we started doing the ABC song. He doesn't have it all down but he nailed the end. He got the 'W, X, Y, Z, now I (mumble), next time won't you sing with me!'
