This little baby.....

lives up....

to her name.


She takes Psalm 98:4 quite seriously: "Let all the earth send out a glad cry to the Lord; sounding with a loud voice, and praising him with songs of joy."

Kaydence is never quiet. She is always making a joyful noise; a sweet melody is always coming from her little mouth. One of the greatest blessings of my day is being able to hear the cadence of her sweet little voice. Whether singing, "Jesus Loves Me" or rapping a hip hop lyric, Kaydence has proved herself to be quite the little musician in the making. ;-) She can literally spend 45 minutes straight sitting at our piano and pressing down the keys, singing along with her piano compositions ;-). She even makes up lullabies for Kajanae which, of course, is absolutely necessary considering Kajanae is Kaydence's "baybay". (As a side note, I think it's hysterical that when I ask Kaydence if she's a baby she shakes her head "no" very adamantly but considers Kaji very much a baby, what with always trying to hold her, kiss her, and saying "MY baybay Ka-ah-nay." ) :-D

So, if Kaydence is ever a famous singer or ivory-tickler, buy her CDs and tickets to her concerts! *kidding* ;-). Whether or not she's the next Alicia Keys, Kaydence's passion and joy in music is evident, and her bursting forth in song brings joy to those around her. Sing on little girl, sing on.

Lia..I know exactly what you mean when you talk about the joy of hearing your lil' ones sining. To other people with an "untrained ear," it might be off-key and a bit nonsensical, but to me when I hear my little 5 y/o singing in the next room, she might as well be singing a symphony because to my ears it's the sweetest sound ever made. It is absolutely wonderful that you are finding so much joy from Kaydence during this time, she seems to be a joyful little girl and adjusting so well. We are lucky we get to spend our time nurturing and mentoring our beautiful kids, only for a short time because they grow up so darn fast! Wishing you continued joy and much happiness...hugs Dana (carleigh)
