Piper Sunshine

I posted this on FB the other day but wanted to post it here too.  Piper has recently started singing entire songs!  I know this might not seem like a big deal to most parents of (almost) 4 year olds but to Piper this is a big deal.  While she quickly has overcome her expression issues and her articulation continues to improve each day, singing songs has been delayed.  Caroline was singing the alphabet before she turned 2 years old!  I've been singing to Piper since she was a baby but figured I'd sing the same songs to her over and over to give her some repetition and hope she would catch on.  Well, it's finally paid off.  In the past few weeks she's started actually singing entire songs.  This one though is my favorite - You Are My Sunshine:

I don't know what it was about her speech issues that caused her not to be able to sing songs.  She would kind of hum along and say the occasional word while I sang before but now it's like everything is coming together.  She's such an expressive little singer now which comes as no surprise since she's been watching Caroline perform her entire life.

OMG! That is so adorable! I love what she does with her hands. Her speech has come a long way.
