I think she has an ear! She lies in her crib and sings before falling asleep (just like her daddy did). She indicates Elmo not by his name but by "la la" - the notes of Elmo's song. We encourage her eclectic tastes: Skinnamarinkydinkydink, Alison Krauss, Andrea Bocelli singing Funiculi, Funicula, kid classics, Petula Clark... she says "Downtown" (sometimes) in the right place. She was glued to the opening scenes of Swan Lake. I will teach her songs and rounds in many languages, we'll play chopsticks and Heart and Soul, and we'll get all gussied up to go see The Nutcracker.
