Headed to Harvard?

Nothing too exciting today, except a fun trip to the park, and it was a beautiful day! There were many families flying kites and having picnics!
-Caleb is starting to sing some songs and it melts my heart! He has been able to sing part of "The Alphabet Song" for awhile now, and lately has added part of "Old MacDonald" and part of "Jesus Loves Me". He amazed me this morning when a song came on the CD we were listening to, and before it even started he said "shine" and pointed to the radio. It took me awhile to figure out what he meant, but then, sure enough, the song "This Little Light of Mine" came on. What a genius! I love when I figure out something he's saying (usually not too clearly) and am rewarded with this undescribable grin, since he's thrilled we're communicating! (or maybe he's just thinking, "duh, it's about time mom")
- He also has been learning some things from our bible stories... Yesterday when we were downstairs, I told him it was time to head up for a bible story and a nap, and he said, "David? Giant?" Wowzers! So far he can answer these questions pretty consistently... (they correspond to the toddler Bible we have been going through) - Who made you? God. What else did God make? Everything. Who built the boat? Noah. What did Noah put on the boat? Animals. Who was the baby God saved in the basket on the river? Moses. Who did David fight? Giant.
