There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one

And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

Dear Johnny,

You love music.  When Daddy sings to you, you start dancing wildly.  When Mommy sings to you, you get all quiet and big eyed.  When Grandpa sings to you, you coo and you laugh.  When we play music for you, you sing back to the speakers.  The only time you didn't like it was when Mommy tried to play the harmonica, but that's okay because she doesn't really know how to play the harmonica.  

Here are some of your favorite songs so far (in no particular order):

1. Frère Jacques
2. This Old Man
3. Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds
4. All Night Thing by Temple of the Dog
5. Daughter by Pearl Jam
6. Soft Kitty from The Big Bang Theory
7. Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan
8. Johnny B Goode by Chuck Berry
9. Take Five by Dave Brubeck
10. California by Joni Mitchell 
11. Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin
12. Vivaldi's The Four Seasons 
13. Sittin' on a Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding

And everything else we come up with, including humming, yodeling, and general crooning...

That's you, trying to eat a songbird.
