A Typical Morning

This morning, James ate his usual breakfast (some dry cereal while waiting for the oatmeal, a bowl of oatmeal, and a banana). I also had my usual (a bowl of cereal and a banana) and was catching up on emails and facebook when behind me I heard a beautiful sound. James was singing "I'm trying to be like Jesus" at the top of his lungs. :)

I just love how much he sings. He sings while playing, while trying to fall asleep at night, while eating...well, pretty much all the time! He sings bits and pieces of songs we have sung to him and that he has learned from nursery and Disney movies. I love to try and figure out what song he is singing. And I love how he turns to me and says, "You know that song? Sing it with me, Mommy! Come on!"

I decided to see if I could capture a bit of this morning's singing on camera for you all. Yes, he's covered in oatmeal. And yes, he's mutilating that banana pretty badly. Like I said, it's a typical morning! :)

As you can see, the video got cut off at the end. My 'change batteries' light was flashing the whole time he was singing. I was so scared it was going to cut out before he finished!

Cute...that's one of my favorite primary songs! As soon as I started playing the video, Claire crawled over and sarted saying "Base" (her version of James). And she is very mad at me now because I am typing and not watching the video. So back to the video it is!

James is so conversational! I love how he responds to you. And of course the singing was, as always, beautiful. It touched my heart. Thanks for sharing! I love my nephew (and you)!
