Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

So a few weeks ago Avery started singing Twinkle twinkle little star. Well, By singing, I mean it would go something like this: twinkle I How I...UP! UP! Upahbuh!...Twinkle twinkle star. This could go on for quite some time, since because the last line of the song is the same as the first line of the song, it would just start all over again! She loved it! Every time she saw a star she would start singing, and would expect me to start singing it too so that she could chime in on all the parts she knew. It was so cute! Here's the weird thing though: probably a week or two ago she suddenly decided she didn't like the song anymore. I mean, she really doesn't like it! For a couple of days she would still start singing twinkle twinkle is she saw a star, but if I tried to join in she looked at me and said, "No." very solemnly and with a little shake of her head. So I thought, okay, maybe she just wants to do it by herself, so I stopped singing it. But then a couple of days later she was sitting in her chair and started singing it, so I looked at her out of the corner of my eye to see whether she might like a back-up singer, and she sang the first line again, and then looked over at me (even though I didn't say or do anything) and said "No!"
So there you have it. My child's taste in music has evolved past Twinkle Twinkle Little Star at the tender age of 21 1/2 months.
