Sam Doesn't Sing the Blues

While we were in Alabama last week, Stephen and I had the great idea of recording Sam and Eli singing, speaking, and generally goofing off. Stephen hauled out his digital microphone, set it up, and Eli starting singing and talking.

Sam responded with his typical I'm-almost-two-and-you-can't-make-me response:

Ah yes, the joys of a fully talking 2o-month-old. Still, Joy did coax him to sing a bit of "Old MacDonald:"

Much more common was to have the two boys chiming in as when we asked them what sounds various animals made:

As you can tell, we had a great time recording the boys, although Sam treated the recorder like a phone, meaning he'd rather listen to Eli than speak himself. Stephen's posted several examples from our session of Eli (Eli's story is priceless), but be sure to listen to Sam's response in this clip when we asked him to sing part of "Wheels on the Bus."

And, since no performance is complete without an encore, here are Eli and Sam proving their are our sons by loudly affirming the supremacy of Trogdor:

That's so great! I love it! The boys' personalities are so clearly shown in the recordings, it's hilarious. I looked up Trogdor, too, you are so good at finding new goofy internet stuff. How did you get that slick recording to work on your blog? So cool! I'd love to know how that worked.
