Our Curly is a soft spoken guy. His speech development is still a little behind his peers and a large part of the time we have no idea what he’s saying. But he continues to improve and his teachers aren’t concerned.
A few nights ago he shocked us by starting to quietly sing along to the last few words in the chorus of “Moon River” as we sang him to bed. And the next night he did the same thing with “Rainbow Connection” and again the following night with “Goodnight My Someone” (these are our 3 main rotation “lullabies”). It’s just so heart melting to hear that soft voice singing the “and me”. He’s a long way off from singing a whole song, but we love to hear him finding his voice.
That is so wonderfully sweet!
What a heart melter, so cute. Cheers to the gifts in life.
Good job, Curly!
Aw, love it! I’m with you – it is absolutely amazing to hear our little late talkers finding their voices!
aw, how sweet is he!?
Great story…thanks for sharing 🙂
(and from your SLP blogger friend, don’t worry too much about delayed speech in boys at this age) 🙂
You’ll have him belting show tunes in no time. 🙂
So cute!! He’ll get there – and when he does you won’t be able to shut him up – believe me, I know! 🙂
P.S. I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Check my blog out for the details!
Aww. Rainbow Connection is our main lullaby too! I had no idea our little one knew the words until one day she started singing along. Cute, but didn’t help the bedtime routine that night 😉
So sweet. I’d love to get a peek at him singing.
Button “sings” (hums or lala’s) our night time song and it’s the sweetest thing.
