Like Mommy, Like Son

Aaron cracks me up sometimes. He is such a little musician. Not structured by any means, but his mind is definitely an artsy one. The kid is all about any kind of musical instruments.

Last Christmas it was all about the drums



















and the guitar



















He is VERY big into conducting with anything sticks he can find, usually wanting someone to make music of some kind for him while he's waving his arms around.

He even has an ictus, for you musicians out there












And a few weeks ago at the children's museum in Illinois, he's added one more to his repertoire.

Handbells.

While most other kids run around just making noise with the little colored bells (that are tuned to the diatonic scale, for those of you who know what I'm talking about), he stood up holding them on his shoulders, just like he sees my bell group every week.




















And played them with such a concentrated, yet amused face



















that I couldn't help but take about a dozen shots. He looks up the entire time he plays, just like I TRY to get my players to do. And he is so proud. "Look, I'm Mommy!"






And how cute is my niece? TOO cute!













I know I will have to show these pictures to my handbell players at church. It is they who have inspired this four year old to imitate them so closely.

I wonder what will become of my artsy, free spirited little boy with the explosive temper, yet winning smile and charm. Although I will not rush time, I look forward to see where he will go in the future.

That is so cute! Well put together picture post, Kristi. He sure looks like he is getting blonder, too.

I look forward to seeing what God is going to do with my kiddos in the future, too.

I wouldn't expect anything else when you look at the musical nature of both mom and dad!!!
