The Sounds Of Kayleigh -- Written by Bel

Kayleigh has been making some ooh's & aah's for a while now, but recently she has discovered that moving her mouth creates different noises. I also think she discovered her tongue & is playing around with that too. Here's what she had to say while we were waiting for Marmy to get home:

Kayleigh also really likes all kinds of music. She loves all the CD's that her friends & family have given her (thank you everyone!), she perks up at church whenever there is music being played, and she especially loves whenever we play music for her at home.

This one song was written out of sleep deprivation - I'm sure we've all been there. Pacing the house at 4am trying to soothe a crying newborn to sleep. I don't think I've ever sang so much in my life! And all of them are ridiculously simple 2 line-ers made up on the spot - basically whatever comes out of your mouth at the time. Luckily, she is a much better sleeper now, but we still sing some of those songs to her, and Laura has added guitar to some of them as well. (Don't judge me, I know I'm not a singer. LOL.)
