Nona sent the boys pictures and notes in the mail. What fun! And this was Cory's first time saying Nona.
And this one's for Nan. We're still working on the song, but I think it's adorable! We have robins outside our window daily, so of course, I had to teach them the only robin song I know. In this video, Iain is obviously distracted by dinner and apples (which were really pears, but whatever). So I'll narrate the normal way he sings the song below.
Here are the lyrics:
When the red, red robin comes bob-bob-bobbin' along, along
There'll be no more sobbin' when he starts throbbin' his own sweet song
Wake up, wake up you sleepyhead
Get up, get up, get out of bed
Cheer up, cheer up, the sun is red
Live, love, laugh and be happy
I was feelin' blue, now I'm walkin' through fields of flowers
Rain may glisten but still I'll listen for hours and hours
I'm just a kid again, doin' what I did again
Singin' a song
When the red, red robin comes bob-bob-bobbin' along.
Iain's favorite part by far is, and I quote, "Live, love LAUGH-AND-BE-HAPPY!" and the last part is more of a shriek. My favorite part of the Iain version is "Cheer up, cheer up, the sun is BLUE." Blue? It doesn't even rhyme! :)
We love you Nona and Nan!
