I am a Child of...

Annika has begun singing, "I am a Child of God." This is now the required song for every bed time and nap time. She's only 19 months! She is the most singing baby I've ever had.

What my other kids could do...

At 18 months Emma was talking in complete sentences. When we brought Anson home from the hospital she ran to my mom and said, "Grandma, come sit on my big-girl bed!" Seriously.

At 19 months Anson could tell the story of the three little pigs. Kind of. Mostly he went around yelling, "I huff, I puff, I blow down."

At 15 months Nathan could tell a joke.

N: Knock, knock
Mom: Who's there?
N: Boo
Mom: Boo who?

Although the real punch line was, "Don't cry, it's just a joke." I was still impressed. Also he could count to 15.

Annika at 13 months could sing Happy Birthday to You. Now at 19 months she has most of her ABC's; Bah, Bah Black Sheep; Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star; and a couple of lines of I am a Child of God.

I'm so proud of my kids!

Thanks for letting me brag. Not like you could have stopped me...

You have very smart kids. Way to go. I love that Annika sings. You have a beautiful voice also. I'm sure that she has been listening to you sing long before she was born. You're a good mom and it shows in your kids. Way to go!!!

That is so awesome that your daughter sings that song at that age! That was the first song I learned, too, and it was my favorite song growing up. I used to sing it to the kids I babysat before I put them to bed.
