    Love IT! In case you haven’t noticed yet, Twinkle, the Alphabet song and Baa Baa Black Sheep all have the SAME tune. Which means our two-year old has discovered the fine art of the medley. It makes the “which song?” game even more interesting.

    For anyone worried about the psyche of these dogs, rest assured weimaraners apparently LOVE the attention. Wegman has said in numerous interviews that he never really had an intension of using his family dogs as props, but he has learned that as “working” dogs lounging around his studio, they really were much happier with a “job” to do.

    As for television as a babysitter: I wonder how much time the average toddler REALLY spends in front of the tube? I think people subtract whole hours when surveyed. I know it’s the one thing that makes me feel like an absolute failure as a parent. According to the averages reported, my kid is an off-the-charts TV zombie.

    That’s the cutest thing ever! TV didn’t teach Leta to be insanely cute but I’m glad it gave her some material.

    You made me feel better about my capitulation to the evil DVD player. But it’s Dumbo I’m worried about. Will the pink elephants scene make her want to drink at an early age? And when the alcohol doesn’t bring on hallucinations that cool will she then switch to hallucinagens?

    Really cute. However, I was distracted by that fire in the background and I started sweating because here in Texas it has already reached 100+ degrees on more than one occasion and the very thought of a fire makes me want to jump into a tub of ice. And if I am in a tub of ice, don’t worry, I still have my kidneys.

    Wow, I can finally comment on this fantastic blog.

    Leta is so cute! I loved her versino of Twinkle Twinkle little star. It was very creative!

    Hope everything is well in America.

    The “mon, mon, mon” threw me off. I totally thought this was going to be a post about Rastafarians.

    You better watch out or next time she might sing the “Chuck is now a Hot Dog” song!

  • William Beem

    Adorable. I presume this is like the Furby language, where two kids just start communicating automatically and no one else understands.

  • Jacey

    I was watching to see what Chuck was doing the whole clip.

    Oh dear lord. Cutest. Thing. Ever. The hand gestures are just classic.

    I havent read all the comments but the dogs in Sesame Street are William Wegman, which Im guessing you know, I have 2 video tapes of his dogs doing ABC’s and Nursery Rhymes…both good if you are medicated.

    Love the clip, too cute! I like the little warble she does on I think the word “sky”! And seeing Chuck deep in thought made me think he probably talks like Jack Handy, you know if dogs could people talk.

    Why do we even bother learning the words to songs when this is so much cuter (and funnier).

  • http://vitaminsea.typepad.com Laura S

    Priceless!!! She can sing for us anytime. That just made my day.. thanks Heather!

  • http://www.iprettymuchhateeverything.com Torrie

    Apparently, Chuck is sick of that DVD too, because if you look closely at the video of Leta singing, it looks like he is trying to climb into the fireplace so he doesn’t have to hear any of those songs EVER AGAIN.

  • choice

    Although I could only make out “sky” and “you aaaarree,” my fave part is the way she grabs her hands in the middle preparing for her big finish. Such esteem that child has.

  • http://www.eliasland.blogspot.com jdillisch

    Holy crap that is the cutest thing ever. I watched it like 6 times and couldn’t stop laughing. Her “Skyyeiyeiyeiyei” with the head bobbing killed me. American Idol watch out.

    Who needs the words when you’ve got enthusiasm? I mean, that’s probably how Liza Minelli keeps going.

    is that chuck trying to set himself on fire in the background?

  • http://karinka1.blogspot.com Carrie Johnston

    Am I the only one who can’t even think of the real lyrics after hearing “oh mon, mon, mon, mon you are”? That was hyper-cute!

    This made me laugh with her.

    Very cute! Is that Chuck in the back sticking his face in the fire??? Even better… :)

    What a cutie! This is precisely why I say NO to “TV Turnoff Week.” You can read my “treatise” at my blog. ha.

    Hehe! V cute! is my English just bad or is Leta singing in her own language? And Chuck! He looks like he is in deep thought…..

    Leta is cute, but the best part about this whole clip is Chuck in the background, apparently attempting to hurl himself face-first into the fire.

    Maybe he’s making a statement about Leta’s singing?

    Maybe he wants to know what roast dog tastes like?

  • http://auntyjaney.blogspot.com Jane-Marie

    Are you sure that’s twinkle twinkle? I just listened to that at work and my co-worker wondered if I was ok!!

    She’s adorable!

    As a mom who was forced to watch Dora sing Happy Birthday for two months straight a few years ago, I feel your pain. When she’s asleep, scratch it real bad. Then when it won’t play you can get her to watch the one you like.

    Oops it’s broken, sorry honey.

    Although Leta is more adorable than that singing puppy in the dog food commercial (omigod I cannot get ENOUGH of that.. are you with me??) I am nearly wetting myself over Chuck in the background. Opus Dei ritual? Roasting marshmallows? Good TV, that is.. better than The Street any day… Weimaraner or no..

    Don’t worry about the TV thing, My son Kendell is learning to dance from Nickelodeon, and thank God because he’d never have a social life if I had to teach him…blah

    For me, it wasn’t a success until I convinced Snowflake that his yogurt was in fact, Tubby Custard! Gobble, gobble.

    Heh, that’s really nice. Not so much hearing the twinkle twinkle vibe, but adorable nontheless.

  • jacks

    She is TOO cute! I love it.

    I love Chuck just kind of hanging out in the background soaking up some warmth by the fire.

  • http://fishunderwater.blogspot.com jaime

    as i’m at work, and a toddler singing from my computer might give away teh whole not-actually-working thing, i just watched that without the sound. whoa. first of all, crazy cute and i can’t wait to get home and hear what she’s actually singing. but second, watch it without the sound. it is straaaaaaaaaange.

  • http://thekilgore.blogspot.com christy

    That’s hilarious, and it reminds me to get a video of Ethan singing “Wanted Man.” It’s pretty priceless.

    What I think is great is that you always do her hair. Very rarely do we see her without pigtails. My two always had cascades of unruly hair because I remember the agony of braided hair and didn’t want to inflict it on them. I needed to tell myself…they are NOT me.

    Love the Oliver site. Our (not for much longer) intact Lab is currently featured on our desktop in a pic rolling around with his walnettos prominently displayed.

    Loved the Jon and Chuck picture you had last week. So sweet.
