Mitch pulled out his harmonicas the other day and gave them to Viv, who threw them up to her mouth and started playing like she's been doing it for years.  The two of them have been playing music together recently, he on the guitar and she dancing and playing her drum or harmonica.  I recently was "gilty" and purchased the mini accordion and bells from  They are so beautiful and the accordion is so accurate to a regular sized instrument.  She has a hard time pulling and pushing it right now, so I put it away for now.  The bells she LOVES and they have such a pretty sound.  This girl loves music.  People who know her tell me all the time that she naturally keeps a rhythm and is drumming and dancing any chance she gets (I think she gets her musical inclinations from my dad, who taught himself the accordion, and has a beautiful voice ;).  Oh, did I mention this is the post where I BRAG?! 

It's a good reminder for me to fill her life with music.  She adores it.


  1. Oh. My. GOSH! This girl is AMAZING! I miss her (and the rest of Team Dub :P) so much! A month is much too long to be without her adorableness. I can't wait for my favorite Vivi squeezes tomorrow. And of course she's musically inclined! She has YOU guys for parents who nurture her booty shakin' oh so beautifully. Thank you!
