A Serenade


We were honored to be the recipients of Gabe's first official solo last night. These were the words to the song he sang so beautifully to us:

I am a chi-deld of Dod. (Should I capitalize the D as I would if it was pronounced the correct way with a G? - I think so)

and He has sent me hewe.

Has diiven me and er-free home

wif pear-wents tind of dear (our favorite part - I guess we're just "kind-of dear") :)

weed me, died me, walkt (always the "t" at the end) besides me, help me find duh way.

Teach me all dat I must do, to wiive wif him someday.

Pretty good, don't you think? We were so impressed! For the proper words to the song (if you need them)go here.

Oh, what's that you say about Christmas? Well...it's not February yet, right Trish?! :) hee,hee.

Soon...I promise.

You're really good at toddler-ese! I could totally visualize (or hear) the whole performance. Precious.

Oh, I love that! How sweet! LOVED your Christmas card, btw. It was so fun to see all your cute smiling faces.
I can't wait until February when we get details of Christmas! I hope everyone got just what they wanted.

What a sweet picture and sweet version of the original song. I think his version is way better, though. So cute!

Mel--it's me again. I was just re-reading a few of my old posts and I found some comments you wrote, and I laughed out loud at them for the umpteenth time. You are one very clever, very kind, very funny woman! I wish we could get our families together again. Love you, my cousin!
