Song Bird.


Scarlett's new obsession is music. Since starting dance and song classes, she has taken a liking to melodies.
I find her singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in her bed at night.
Her little voice right on key.
It fascinates me that a year ago, she could barely walk.
Now, I have a little song bird.

She reminds me of my younger sister when she was little.
Singing every song that she can remember.
Now my sister is a song writer and singer.

I don't allow Scarlett to watch too much tv but one show that I do let her watch is the Laurie Berkner Band. When Laurie comes on, Scarlett stops everything and she is mesmerized.
The guitar strumming and singing captivates her and slowly, she joins in singing.
I'm thankful for music.

Music has always had a huge impact on me.
It's gotten me through some really hard times and some very happy times.
To see it bringing joy to Scarlett makes me smile.
She may look like her Daddy, but she is like her Mama in more than one way.
Coming from a musical family, this makes me happy.

Oh Scarlett, my little songbird.

  5. Your Scarlett is adorable. Love her curls, but then that may be because I have my OWN curly-haired Scarlett, so I'm a bit biased!! Another great children's singer who is not sickeningly sweet (like a lot of kid's singers) is Frances England. I love her stuff. Very folksy cool.

    merci,
