Changing Voice

I have made a great deal of fun of Cheoah’s squeakiness.  In case you have forgotten, listen in the background to the videos posted here or here.  Well, my little girl’s voice may finally be coming in.  I have been trying to catch this on video and this a very poor attempt, but I heard the singing begin, grabbed the camera, and ran down the stairs.  Unfortunately, I only caught the very end, but got a great howl. I do love the look of “Who, me?” at the end.


But, since it was dark, I knew I had to do better.  So this second video is a little more set up.  I had the lights on and was all prepared.  You get the full range – squeakiness, the Cheoah patented crate scratching asking for the door to be opened, and finally, a little howling action. The Herd choir is singing all of the harmonies in the background.


Happy Woos!

    Mom says she still remembers the day we make our first noises like that. She was so happy that we could make noises that weren’t squeaky and making her ears hurt!

    Brice tried to dig at the computer screen when we played your videos. I think he wanted to rescue Cheoah.
