Serina Hope at Laughter, Love and Madness had a post today about having a song for most occasions. Sometimes I get like that too. Usually, its a word or a phrase that will trigger a song in my head. For example, the first time I found out that I was being sent to Phoenix, Arizona, I had:
"Is anybody going to San Antone or Phoenix Arizona?"
The strange part is that I have no idea (even now) what song this is!
Anyway, tonight I have 'The Rain in Spain Stays Mainly in the Plain'. More specifically, the part where Prof. Higgins sings:
"By George, she's got it. By George, she's got it. Now once again, where does it rain?"
So who's got what? Aaron's got it of course! As I was putting him to sleep tonight, he started pointing at his toy dog and saying something that sounded like 'Picard'. Thats what the dog is called. He then started identifying Picard's ears, mouth and tail. After that it was identification of his own mouth, teeth and tongue. He's been able to point out all these body parts for some time but he's never said the words spontaneously before. I kept repeating the words after he says it his way and he repeated back again, improving each time. By the time he was ready to go to sleep, he could say the words pretty well. I hope he doesn't forget it overnight.
