Mother Goose Would Be Proud

A few things about this video:

  1. Ben  has started insisting that he read to us.  The funny thing is that he has a lot of his books memorized so it often appears as if he’s reading although we know he’s really not.  Sometimes he’ll even run his finger along the words as he quotes the book to really make you think he’s reading it.  When he doesn’t know the words he’ll just throw in a little jibberish.
  2. To comfort Jude when he starts to get upset, Ben usually begins bolting out the lyrics to the nursery rhymes “Rock-a-bye Baby” and/or “Baa Baa Black Sheep.”  In the video, I love how he adds, “…and one for the little boy Ben and Jude down the lane.”

  1. We have that same book! I love how Ben is feeling the little texture parts of the book while he sings. I love that part of the book. His little voice is so sweet. What a fun thing to capture on video. You’ll love going back to that and listening to it when he’s older. I’ve been meaning to do a little interview with Jackson on video, just to capture his little high-pitched voice. These boys are so sweet, aren’t they?

    Ben is a pretty good singer!
