It has been so long since I've posted to this blog! Everyone probably gave up on me, and stopped following it :) That's okay though...
Everything has been going well. Jillian just turned 2, and we had a wonderful birthday party for her. She 'gets' her birthday now... even 2 weeks later, we'll still catch her singing "Happy Birthday Dear Jillian", and when it's someone else's birthday at school, she insists that it's really "Jillian's birthday". So fun!
Over the past couple months or so, she's started singing. Listening to her little voice singing is really amazing, and I never get tired of listening. Her first song was "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (also known in our house as "Twinkle Star"), and she has progressed to "Happy Birthday", "the ABC song", "Mr Turkey", and her newest one "Bells are ringing" (practicing for her Christmas program at school). The trouble is, I can never get her on video! Whenever you want to take a picture of her, or a video, she wants to 'see it' - meaning, she wants to look at the screen on the back of the camera to see what you are seeing. I've tried to explain that I need to take her picture first before she can 'see it', but she doesn't get it yet. After 2 months however, I have FINALLY gotten her on video singing Twinkle Star. The original video is 4 minutes long of her stopping and starting, and wanting to 'see it' over and over again, but the last minute and 20 seconds were golden. Look out American Idol 2026!
So, here you go: Jillian Hatfield with her rousing rendition of "Twinkle Star"
