Precious moments...

Emily loves music. She will sit under the piano when I practice. When she is upset or throwing a fit we sing "If you're happy and you know it" and she will start to participate in the song even as she has tears streaming down her face.

Each night, either Steve or I will lay down with Emily and sing her songs until she is asleep. Steve and I have different sets of songs we sing. Some of our songs overlap, like Primary songs. We have always sang to her each nap and bedtime. She will snuggle into position and listen. Just last night as we lay all cuddled up and I began to sing, Emily sang along. At first I thought it was coincidence. But as I moved onto the next song she continued to sing along. I sang "I am a child of God" and she was singing along the best she could, usually finishing the last word in the phrase.

I am so glad we have taken these precious bedtime moments to sing to her and enjoy her sweet little spirit before she drifts off to sleep!

That is so sweet! Hopefully, she will retain these memories you are making.
