Lindsey, albeit not a dancing fool, does enjoy playing music on her ipod or listening to music on tv on a regular basis. It is for this reason that my little man started singing before he started talking. He does not currently say "mommy" or "daddy" or any other recognizable words, to our disappointment. However, he can sing one particular song. And we all listened in wonder the first time we each heard him sing some lines from Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." Nope, I'm not lying. This is the first time I've ever heard of a kid singing before he says his first word. I've tried to catch this on video on multiple occasions, but every time he sees the camera, he becomes totally distracted from singing the song and focuses on the camera in silence or dives for the camera like you see here.
It is totally frustrating, because this is one of the funniest things I've ever seen and when Lindsey first told me about it I didn't believe her until I heard it for myself. So, I guess you may not believe me, but he totally does it and it cracks me up.
Now, for the older, possibly unexposed readers out there, here is a link to Lady Gaga's song so you can hear what it sounds like. My sweet little man, bops up and down while he sings, "ga ga ooo ma ma." The lyrics are:
Roma roma-maHe doesn't have the words exactly right, but when he sings it, you know exactly what song he's singing. It is hilarious. He's listening to Lady Gaga in this picture.
And this picture:
All you have to say is "Oh ma, ooh la la" and he'll repeat it and bop up and down. Then Luke will correct us when we get the words wrong and he'll sing practically the entire song. At least we have something that we know will cheer up George anytime - a little Lady Gaga goes a long way with him.
