We just got back from spending Thanksgiving with Neil's parents. My mother-in-law Hedy observed this gem yesterday morning: Ben was listening to his Peter Paul and Mommy CD while playing with toys. At one point, he started tapping his head. At first Hedy couldn't figure out why. Then, a second later, the lyric "bumped his head and he went to bed" came up!
See, the amazing thing about this is that even while he was distracted by other things and the music was in the background, he heard it well enough to recognize what song was playing and remember what lyrics came next!
No, we didn't teach him to do this. This was apparently his natural response to the song.
