I do believe she's musical....

I've had these pictures for a little while. The first one was taken a few weeks ago - amidst the hoopla of Susan Boyle from "Britain's Got Talent" fame. At the Monday night supper after she became famous we watched her on YouTube. Little Caroline sat there mesmerized. I mean, she watched Ms Boyle for as long as it took for her to sing that beautiful song. I noticed it, as did Caroline's mother, Elizabeth.

Then a few weeks later Caroline was in the living room pounding (though gently) on the piano singing "If You're Happy And You Know it". I thought, that little girl has a future in music!!!!
What a thrill.
Her Grandma Peggy would be so proud.

Here are the pics:

How wonderful is that?!

Oh wow - I love that picture of her on the piano. I think I might print it out and frame it... it is so fitting. Music speaks to her in ways that I don't understand. When she was about 18 months old, we were walking through Hobby Lobby and some piano music came on.... she said, "That's beautiful 'pinano', Mommy." She LOVES music.

I love this blog!!

Oh - and I have always wondered if this had anything to do with her love of music... when I was pregnant with her, I read that she could hear things outside the womb at a certain point. So, I put some headphones on my belly and blared Jim Brickman to her. John even got a picture of it - I'll have to find it. And when she was a newborn (all the way until now, even) we'd have music time everyday... just a few songs, clapping our hands, etc. She was (and is) always mesmerized.

Wow, that is a great picture of Caroline at the piano! You'll have to teach her, Aunt Nancy!

I tell you, that little Caroline is so precious. I hope she is musical, cause not only would Peggy be proud, but so will Peggy's sister!
