Alphabet Loop

If you ask Miriam to sing the alphabet she will obligingly croon out, "Alphabet!" for you in her sweetest voice. If you ask her to sing her ABCs, however, she will immediately start belting out the alphabet. There's a bit of disconnect for her there; she's not quite sure what an alphabet is and yet she most definitely knows her ABCs, which also happen to be the alphabet. She just doesn't know that.

Her ABCs are also a little distorted and she ends up singing them in a continuous loop until she either gets the ending right or until she gets tired of singing, whichever comes first. Usually it goes something like this, only a little longer, and with a few more mistakes:

A B C D E F G
I'm a J!
Emily P!
Q R S T U V
W X Y and Z!
Now wow-wow-wow
A B C D E F G H I J 

Q R S T U V W X Y and Z! 
Now wow-wow-wow A B C! 
Nesk time! Sing a me!

Before bed today she was singing it into a football microphone. And while we were in Idaho we got a cute clip of her singing in the car.
