Budding pianist?

This little piano has been one of Sophia's favorite toys for the past year. We have tried to get Keenan interested in it, and even put him on our laps so he could explore the keys, but he was having none of it.

So imagine our surprise (late) tonight when he pulled himself up on Sophia's stool, wobbled and started pounding away at the keys. I plunked him on her little chair (I sat behind to ensure that he didn't launch himself off it) and he was transfixed. He looked a little like an image of Beethoven madly composing a symphony. Of course, Opa, a masterful classical composer himself, will be so proud of his grandson when Keenan graces him with a performance. The only challenge will be preventing Sophia from pushing Keenan off her stool. She is quite territorial about her toys. This little foray into music only happened because she was sound asleep.

This piano looks cool - does it actually sound ok? I want more instruments for the girls, but so many of them just make noise, not music...

OH so cute, we got this Piano for Lilly! He wanted to get at it when Sophia wasn't around so he could have it all to himself! He is Adorable!

Oh my gosh! Is that Keenan? When did he grow a neck?

Babies grow up waaaaay too fast. He'll be a toddler before you know it.

(He's just so stinkin' precious, by the way)

I hope we can visit soon! We'll miss the USAA picnic this summer but will make the ACCEPT picnic in September, as always. Any chance you'll travel out here for that? If so, you can stay with us! Just think of all the hotel costs you'll save!! ;)

Love ya!
