this is an audio post - click to play

Gabriel made my day yesterday when he told me to sit on the porch swing in our backyard. He then proceeded to serenade me by singing James Blunt's "You're Beautiful" at the top of his lungs, with his head flung back and his little voice warbling and shaking as he belted out "You're beautiful! You're beautiful! You're beautiful, it's true! I saw your face, in a -------(missing words here due to the fact that he's not really sure what the words are, even though it's supposed to be "crowded place") and I don't know what to do! Cause I'll never be with you!"
But you don't need me to tell you how it sounded. Check out this audio post!! Gabriel was kind enough to perform his tune once again today, for the benefit of "audioblogger" so you could all enjoy it!

ohhhhhhh my goodness... I played it over and over... (4 times!) How could your heart NOT melt having your little guy sing that to you!?!

Next time he's a stinker... go play this and all will be forgotten!

TOOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!! I can definitely hear him putting in the same emotion and intensity as James Blunt! How could you not have laughed while you were recording? :) I sang this song a lot to Norah when she was first born; but of course changing the negative lines to positive ones ("I'll never be with you" into "I'll always be with you").
