09/15/2009 - Old McDonald

One song that Heather has sung from the first time we met her was Old McDonald had a Farm, which of course she was singing in Mandarin. Karen and I have responded to her cries of EIEIO with the English words to this song and today while taking a drive to our nearest Target she broke out in song IN ENGLISH!!!! She is such a clever little girl and is now singing her ABC's as well with a few misteps here and there but who can critize someone who only a few short weeks ago had minimal English exposure.


  1. I'm so glad to hear Heather is doing well asjusting to her new life with you two. These kids are amazing!!

  2. Singing a song in English already?! I agree; our little ones are beyond amazing! We've found that signing helps tremendously with the frustration factor, and we never cease to be amazed at how quickly Melina picks up signs.
