Today was a calmer night than yesterday even if a very loud, very distorted, video all in Spanish was blared throughout the night. He loves watching Disney Junior in every language possible. And somehow tonight he found one that had been dubbed with a distorted squeal. The more it squealed the louder he wanted to listen to it. He absolutely loves noise, loud loud noise. He also loves to sing. He has an incredible voice and the tones he produces are spot on when he is truly singing with his voice. He walked through the living room with his ukulele hanging from his neck, playing, singing, and making this mommy proud. I help him put his fingers on the strings, pushing them down, and his other hand goes to town strumming along. I’m amazed at how well he does with it. I know this will truly help his fine motor skills. I know nothing about guitar but half the battle to me is having him feel the music. He has a natural talent and a love for it. We have many instruments and he seems to have a knack for all of them. I’m amazed when he plays his harmonica. He was able to get powerful notes coming in and out of it rather quickly. He doesn’t know how to play any particular songs on the instruments but his willingness to try and his excitement for singing shines through. I know that his skills will improve each time he picks one of them up. Dinner was a little smoother tonight and maybe it’s because I didn’t even try to push it except making him take a bite of chicken noodle soup. He informed me, “yum yum do you like it no throw it in de trash carrots chicken” and immediately the bites went from his mouth to the trash quickly. He ate the bite of noodles though. I pretty much knew how that was going to go so I had already made him a beef patty and he finished his and mine. I got myself one growing boy. Thankful for his smile on days that I need it most. I see his smile and my heart explodes with gratitude that he is mine. Walk the dream that is yours. Smiles to all and donut daze!
