Quack, Quack, Quack!

I haven't been as good as I wanted to be about writing down sweet memories I want of my Ivie bird. This is one that I am determined to get down though. Ivie loves ducks recently.

It all started with Pandora's toddler radio and the song "Six Little Ducks." Trev and I began to notice that whenever this song came through Pandora's rotation Ivie really danced, sang and paid attention.

We started to sing it to her outside of Pandora and she would just get so excited. So Trevor learned how to play it on his guitar and we also discovered this link.

So the guy is a bit creepy and YouTube certainly violates our "No screen time for the baby policy", but Ivie absolutely adores him, so we watch it occasionally. She flips out when we play her this video, and in the last week she has even started to use her little hands like duck bills.

I love the new hand action - she will start off by raising her hand toward the computer and making her fingers quack, but then she almost gets distracted by the movement and brings her quacking fingers right back down in front of her face for closer study of the movements. It is so funny. Meanwhile she keeps bopping and babbling to the beat of the song.

She loves this song so much that we had a "Six Little Ducks" Birthday Party - she loved singing the song, but HATED her little duck cake. She refused to touch, sit by or eat it all night long.
We love, love, love our silly little duck.
