Learning the Alphabet

My little smartypants is doing great learning the alphabet! Here he is yesterday singing the Alphabet Song with Mommy.

A few notes about the video:
-The ones he knows best are the letters at the end of each phrase in the song. He actually sounds like he's singing them, since he says them in a lower tone and holds them out longer.
-Every letter between L and O is O... But he knows the P comes next once we finally get there!
-He takes a break after V to look at the letter magnets we have on the fridge. Those are one key to him knowing so many letters already.
-For the last line, he decided to majorly start chowing down on his bread. But he managed to get all the letters out!
-I left it running at the end so you could hear him say "alphabet." He has a little musical elephant that plays "Twinkle, twinkle little star," but ever since he learned the alphabet song, he prefers we sing that instead of Twinkle Twinkle. The elephant is hanging next to the chair where he drinks his bedtime milk, so every night when he's done with his milk, he says "Elephant! Alphabet!" and we have to pull the tail to make the elephant sing the alphabet!
