When Dot is joyful, she sings with all her heart.

It is not uncommon to hear Dot sings while she goes about playing with her toys. She will create her own lyrics and melodies. Such moments are difficult to capture on record and I think it’s best left undisturbed so that she can express herself fully in her own unique way.

At times, she will transform into a cute little ballerina, with the living room as her stage, dancing with the music.

Recently, it was her favourite uncle’s birthday and we recorded a lovely birthday song sang by Dot just for him on SoundCloud.

I recorded her singing when she just turned 2 years old, these are some of them :

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Doe-Re-Mi

A chinese children song – Pluck the carrot

A Child’s Heart.

The heart of a child,

Like the heart of a flower,

Has a smile for the sun

And a tear for the shower.

Oh, innocent hours,

With wonder beguiled!

Oh, heart like a flower’s

Is the heart of a child!

The heart of a child,

Like the heart of a bird,

With raptures of music

Is flooded and stirred.

Oh, songs without words!

Oh melodies wild!

Oh, heart like a bird’s

Is the heart of a child!

The heart of a child,

Like the heart of the spring,

Is full of the hope

Of what summer shall bring.

Oh, glory of things

In a world undefiled!

Oh, heart like the spring’s ,

Is the heart of a child!
