Jubillee Friday

Ever have one of those so full days you can barely recall things you did in the morning? Today was one of those days. Six hours ago feels like about 6 days ago!

Ian and I spent the morning at a Friends of Grant Park event with Music Matt! He was great. A lot of singing, dancing, and fun! MMatt sang one song and then asked everyone if they knew their ABC's. Random hands in the air. He then asked for a volunteer to sing it with him and a cute little girl went up to him, said her name, and chickened out and went back to her seat. He moved on to another song and just kept the flow going. About 1 1/2 songs later Ian stood up, looked at me, and said, "I wanna sing." And away he ran. Without a moment's hesitation he was in front of the group of 40 or so moms, dads, and kiddos standing by a microphone that was 3 times his size.
He told Matt his name and then sang his ABC's in front of everyone. You could hear most of them even! I was so overwhelmed I didn't get the best pictures, but wow, what a moment! Yes, I cried, because geez, there was my kiddo standing there all on his own singing his little heart out without ONE OUNCE of fear or hesitation. When he was done. We clapped. He ran back to me and Matt went on with the show.

Then the drums came out! He LOVED them! Waited his turn and then sat right down like he'd played a million times before!

Later in the day he recieved his first birthday gift via mail! A great book and this wild shirt from Cousin Kirin! Obviously he approves!
