little linguist?

We were getting ready to go to bed the other night when I heard the little man singing. It sounded like Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes but when I got closer I did not understand the words he was using. I asked him what the song was but he just looked at me and continued singing. I remember then that he had been watching videos of nursery rhymes in different languages. He is partial to Russian and Chinese and one of these he was using when he sang that song the other night. I don't know if he memorized all the lyrics but he sure sounded cute when he was singing. The husband laughed when he heard his son and I know he is proud of our boy. I hope he will start getting interested with my language before long. He understands and knows a little of my own dialect and I think it is a start. Maybe this fascination with other language will be good for him.
