Continuing from the last entry, here’s Tim at the piano with me. He’s always had tons of musical toys, and I play piano for him — in hopes that he would be attracted to music without me pushing him into it because that just never works. Amazingly, he really seems to love it, and he’s showing signs of having a decent ear. When he sings his ABC’s he garbles most of the words, but he does get the tune right! At the piano, he imitates my hand movements and tries to play real music. He even has me guide his hand to the right notes to play the melody. His hands span a fifth on the keyboard already — I imagine he’ll have real large paws when he’s done growing. Which is great for a pianist. Yay music! (Boo football.. Boo ice hockey..)
