I totally know what she's singing ...

Toddler speak is sometimes difficult to decipher.  I recognize that even to a parent's ears it sometimes sounds like gibberish (at best). 

Olive loves music and has recently taken a fancy to 'singing.'  She'll 'sing' along with me to Jesus Loves Me, the Eensy Weensie Spider, and the Wheels on the Bus.  She'll dance or clap along with almost any music.

However, the reigning champion is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  When there is not music playing (or when she has tired of NPR news), Olive starts calling,

"Mama! ... Mama! ... Mama! ... Mama!"

"Yes, Olive?"

"Teekle ...."

and then we start singing.  Kyle thought he was off the hook until she realized that he may be more of a sucker for her cute than I am ... "Daddy! ... Daddy!" ... "Teekle ..."
This video is about a week old, and (I SWEAR!) her singing skilz have improved since then ... but if you listen closely, she really is singing.  It still makes me grin from ear to ear.
