If our Gracie girl isn't singing around the house, she's more than likely playing a musical instrument. She's got a guitar, a tambourine, a harmonica, a xylophone and a recorder. The newest addition to her collection is the trumpet. It's a four key air trumpet, costs $19.99 from Mrs. Tiggy Winkles and it's the 'next best thing', from what I can see, so far! The girl has a real passion for music and I know she's going to go far with it. One of the things my hubby and I were talking about recently is how music and singing can be very calming and also a great outlet. I know right now it's all in the name of fun, but a few years down the road I can see this singing and music passion being a way for our girl to channel her feelings and emotions. I was in the middle of vacuuming this morning when I saw her busting her gut blowing the trumpet! I just had to stop and snap these shots of her.
