Singing two year olds and flashbacks

When I was about my sons age my parents joke about my singing.

My favorite account is when my brother and I were singing "I'm in the Lord's army". In this song you go through the stanza then you sing "I'm in the Lord's army" 3 times and then sing the stanza again. Well, my brother would sing with me and when we got to that part where you sang "I'm in the Lord's army" I just kept going and going.

Another favorite was the song "The B-I-B-L-E". I would loudly and proudly belt out "The B-I-B-I-L, yes that's the book for me. I stand upon the word of God, the B-I-B-I-L."

Yes, I know I was adorable! Maybe my son gets it from me. Although he seems to be doing a better job at the singing thing so far but I know we are just getting started. He LOVES to sing and that makes this mommy happy.

The list of songs he knows is growing but lets see some of what he knows so far...

I will make you fishers of men
Ring around the rosies
Jesus loves me
10 lepers
Twinkle twinkle little star
Row row row your boat
Jesus loves the little children (in English and cebuano)
Lalum Lapad (Cebuano version of Deep and wide. He's still learning the English)
My God is so big
Jesus loves the little ones like me me me!

Ok, so he knows a bunch of songs and I love to hear him sing. He soaks stuff up like a sponge. God has blessed me with one amazing child!
