My little smarty

So the other day I was changing Spencer's diaper as I was getting him ready to take a nap. I always sing him 2-3 songs as I am putting him down for a nap. I have done this for a long time now. As I started singing a primary song to him, "I love to read the Holy Scriptures" he started to sing a long with me and fill in words if I stopped singing for a minute. I was shocked and amazed! This is something he had never done before. I had no idea that he had actually been listening to the words of these songs and remembering them! So we tried "I am a Child of God". Again I was amazed that he knew many of the words to the song!! We tied song after song and I was so touched to hear my sweet little boy sing the words to these precious primary songs that I have been singing him since he was born. I have underestimated his abilities. Now we sing the songs together each day. I love to hear him say "one more song" or sing...sing!! What a sweet boy I have been blessed with. He brings so much joy into my life, more that I have ever felt before. I love to see him grow and learn. I love to be his mommy!

I remember when that same thing happened with Hannah, too. It was so rewarding to know that she actually was listening and learning even though it didn't always seem like it! I'm glad you're enjoying being Spencer's mommy!
