Empathy!

Gibson and I have been listening to the Frozen soundtrack a lot.  Because it's FANTASTIC.

So last night I was singing "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" in his room, and he was acting really somber.  And then he started crying.

I figured it was because he wanted me to be quiet, so I stopped singing.

...except that I can't really ever stop singing, so I sang "Let it Go" instead.  Which he loved!

A few minutes later, I switched back into "Do You Want to Build a Snowman."  And when I got to the last verse (the sad one!), Gibson's eyes welled up and tears started falling.

So, as an experiment, I sang "Let it Go" again.  Gibson was happy and started dancing.  When I switched back to the snowman song again (the title is far too long to type this many times), he cried.

GIBSON SHOWED EMPATHY!

I'm so excited about this.  And also about the fact that he can differentiate between sad music and happy music.  He's a genius!

Let's not even talk about the fact that he learned FOUR new words on Saturday.  And a few new ones since then.  This kid is growing up so fast, and becoming such a smart little guy!  I'm going to need him to stop pretty soon.
