Quick Tip: Turn the ABC song into a nursery rhyme and sing it to your infant as part of your bedtime routine.
When Emiliablo was a baby Diablo did something wonderful. As part of her bedtime routine he started singing her the ABC song. When Emiliablo was about 18 months she started singing her ABC’s. In a few weeks Emiliablo will be two years old and she can now sing her ABC’s. There are a few letters that she can’t pronounce but she makes the sound of that letter distinctively.
I don’t think Diablo’s intention was to teach her the ABC’s as an infant. In all honesty he probably just didn’t know that many songs! Whatever his intentions were at that time it has proven to be one of his wisest parenting decisions. I highly recommend singing the ABC song to your infant. It may sounds silly but once they become a toddler they will have a head start on learning their alphabet. Our next step is letter recognition.
