Splish Splash… what was the next lyric?!

IMG_4550Before we had Madison I thought I knew the lyrics of a lot of songs…. then she came suddenly I find out there is a second verse of “You are My Sunshine,” it’s a sad verse. about waking up in the middle of the night crying?! WHAT?! Then Christmas came around and I am hmmmmmmmming through “Frosty the Snowman.”  Where did my brain go?  Or did I ever really know the lyrics?!IMG_4549

The Mr. and I laugh all the time because we start singing to Maddy and then poof the words are gone and we are mumbling through the rest of the song as quickly as possible to get to the chorus again!  Let me tell you,  the ABC’s are pretty much our go to song!IMG_4538

While I find it is pretty easy to talk to Maddy throughout the day about anything, Maddy, should we clean the kitchen….ok, now let’s let your furry sisters outside etc…. it’s just talking so that she can hear me talk and according to all the books sitting under my coffee table, that is how babies develop their language skills… the Mr. on the other hand, finds that constant  talking is EXHAUSTING!  In fact, this has been a source of tension in our house because I think he is just sitting there silently all the time with her, while he feels that constantly talking is just impossible for him.  Basically it boiled down into a ummmmmmmm, discussion…. 🙂 Where we made a better plan!IMG_4521

Reading & Singing!  Now he is reading a lot more to her and singing along with Pandora radio and I handle more of the constant talking. It is actually a good system, because it gives both of us different ways to interact with Maddy during our time.  Don’t over read into this….. I read and sing with Maddy and he still talks to her a lot!! IMG_4523

So… about those lyrics!  Justin has been in charge of bath time since Maddy was born and he LOVES bath time just as much if not more than Madison!!!  He gets her in her little whale of a tub and the splish, splash all around….see where I am going with this! IMG_4527

This is us, SINGLING LOUDLY… .”Splish Splash I was taking a bath, da dadada da.” repeat several times.  We looked it up on youtube. WAY too many words, but here is the part we are working on learning complete with some bath time photos 🙂 YES, she will one day be mad about me posting bath time pictures, but they are too cute to keep to myself!

IMG_4558Splish splash
I was takin’ a bath

IMG_4560‘Long about a Saturday night (yeah!)

And I opened the door
