Although we have encouraged him to sing aloud, Carter has been reticent until lately. Perhaps he has been deterred by his parents' less than melodious voices. Whatever the reason for his shyness, he seems to have found his muse in the alphabet. Carter loves letters: he enjoyed a recent visit to the optometrist intensely, asking when we could return to "play with the letters." He tried to "help" his father on the eye exam, revealing the letters that Erik's less than 20-20 vision could not identify. He loves all letter toys, and is already reading (and memorizing) books. The video shows Carter re-mixing the alphabet song lyrics into his own tune.
