Look Out American Idol, Here She Comes!!

OK, maybe not quite yet but...

Please pay no attention to the crazy lady singing horribly in the video. This really weird lady walked into my house and started singing with Marissa. And since Marissa won't sing at all unless someone is singing with her, I just let her do it and then kicked her out as soon as the song was over. Man, she was bad... and really weird!! ;)

One of my favorite parts is the line in the song that goes "you're low-fat, well I'm working on that" and Marissa sings "fat fat fat".   :)

I have been trying for a while to get this on video and I still wish I had a better example of how Marissa sings with her music. Just last night we were singing, err, I mean she and that crazy, no-talent, bad singing weird lady were singing, and Jeremy was upstairs working on something. Of course I didn't have the camera on and she was singing her heart out to this same song. I would hear a little chuckle from Jeremy every now and then. She just clams up and gets really distracted when the camera comes out.

In fact, here is the video I shot before that first one and you can see what I am talking about. I know this is not a unique problem but I just wish I could catch it on video better.

Ahhh, my little entertainer.  She has big things in store for her, I can just feel it!

I have the biggest smile on my face right now thanks to you and Marissa! How cute!

I love that song, I'd never heard it before. She is precious singing it! As for that crazy lady, she sings quite well too! My kids are always making fun of my singing and laughing at the crazy songs that I make up, but I don't think that I have the courage to put my singing voice on tape!

Have a great day and Happy singing!

I'm cracking up! That second video where she lets her head fall forward like she's thinking "Oh No, this crazy lady wants to sing this again!?!?"

She's adorable, like always. And a much better singer that a couple of the AI winners, No lie!!

Try a tripod and get out from behind the camera and she'll forget about the camera maybe. She is soooooo adorable! I want to squeeze her! God Bless you both! Whenever I watch these videos I just want more, more, more Rissa!

Super cute!! That just gets me really excited to be able to here Maggies voice. I hope we can get her going on the PM valve soon!

By the way thanks for commenting on my blog. We did check with angel flights and they will not fly that far. I'm not sure if it was just to far of a distance for them or if they only fly in a certain part of the country. I was confused but anyway yes they can't help us. Hopefully we will figure something out soon. I can't wait to have my baby home!!

Your videos are adorable! I know, it's so hard to get those perfect moments on camera, isn't it! She is doing a great job with her PMV!
