Singing

   We celebrated my dad's birthday a few days early.  The girls went over to help Granny bake cupcakes and get ready.  And Rachel had a special gift for Poppy...  As I've written before, Rachel has been slow to talk and even with practice and therapy, her language is still delayed.  She's talking more all the time, but we had never heard her sing.  She will do actions to children's songs and occasionally fill in a word, but she had never sung.  Until yesterday.  Rae was standing on a kitchen chair helping mix the cake batter when Granny heard a sweet little voice singing "Happy day to you..."  Katherine joined in and they sang the whole song.  Rachel can sing!  We sang over and over with her and cheered every time.  At dinner, when Granny brought out the cupcakes, Rachel sang Happy Birthday to her Poppy.  What a sweet gift...
