The Piano is our number one babysitter!
Ellie starting putting Mia with her at the piano a few months back... and everywhere else Ellie cares to go. The difference between the piano and say sitting on her lap is that there is actual enjoyment at the piano. Mia loves that piano and goes from pounding to playing slowly and back to pounding. She now crawls to the piano, stands up reaching her little fingers over the keys and plays. We have trained Mia as our little show monkey. After she plays a few keys she will look around to see who was listening with a big smile on her face- expecting someone to clap.
While in Utah, Mia learned to play her second instrument. The pitch pipe. My mom has had a pitch pipe kicking around for years that eventually ended up in the toy box. We think she is pretty fantastic at it.
And so does she...
