V is growing up daily. She does new things daily and is really starting to communicate with us. These are definitely fun fun times.
One of the things that she does that cracks me up is during our night time shtick. As I've mentioned before, she's a woman of routine. To everything there is an order in V's life and everything has its place and time. When we go to bed, we first read, then say our prayers, and then go night night. Lately, she's been wanting me to sing to her. She'll specifically tell me to sing and when she's done with me, she'll shoo me out with a night night. Well, ever since she was a baby, one particular song has always been her fave. No other song would ever really soothe her, but this one, would always do the trick. That little song is Edelweiss from The Sound of Music. When she was an infant, that was the only song she would calm down to. Now, she specifically requests it. It goes something like this:
Mommy: Night night V. I love you.
V: Night Night, (immediately followed by) Sing?
Mommy: Edelweiss, la la la (Actual song is sung)
Mommy: There are places I remember (trying to throw in a little Beatles)
V: No! Vice
Mommy: Edelweiss, la la la
And that's our drill. After several renditions of "vice" I finally tell her night night and she's satisfied and doesn't call me back.
I know she's just going to love The Sound of Music when she's older, and what's not to love!
