The other night, while going through the bedtime routine with the Little Man, I just happened to hum a few bars.  Honestly, I didn't even recall what it was I was humming at the time, I just did it.  My son, however, recognized the song, and started to say "Tape"  (No, not like scotch tape, but pronounced more like "ta -puh" and clapping his hands.   Which my wife recognized and started singing along.   It's a little song in french that my in-laws like to sing with him.  I believe it goes like this:

Tape, tape, tape de mains
Roule, roule, gentil moulin

(All errors in french, are mine)  There are hand motions that go with it too.  Namely clapping on the first line, and a kind of rolling motion of the hands one over the other for the second.

Now, it's not like he can sing the whole song.  But the fact that he responded to the tune, and started to "sing along" and clap was just fantastic.  They really can absorb everything you throw at them, it's just amazing.
