When I was pregnant with BabyBoy, I was still teaching and playing more, and he got to hear my orchestras and rehearsals all the time, every day. All kinds of repertoire.
We have music in our house and car all the time, classical, christian, bible songs, and more. All of our littles love to sing and play all of the instruments we have collected so far and we look forward to some more serious learning soon.
BabyBoy is our oldest and he is a lil' musician from the tippy top of his hair to the bottom of his cute little boy feet. He has a great ear, beautiful voice (we have a video each year starting when he was 2 1/2 of him singing O Holy Night and so much more!), and a gift of music. He plays everyday, singing worship songs, makes up his own worship songs. And gets his little bro and sis playing and singing too. And we LOVE it.
The other day I finally went through with cutting BabyBoy's hair (semi-long story :)).
You know when you use a machine and it makes a buzzing sound? If you are a super music dork ;), you hum the same note that you hear through the sustained tone of the machine and figure out what note it is!
BabyBoy was humming the same pitch the clippers was making!
So I started humming it too, and we both started cracking up. He is my boy!
We proceeded to sing the solfege scale (Do re mi or can sing with numbers 1-8 as well ;)), then I attempted for us to harmonize when I had him sing the fifth and I sang the third while the buzz of the clippers held the tonic.
I used to do that all the time and when a doorbell of a store went off, or a tone in the distance, or hum of a running object somewhere in ear's range, I would figure out what the interval and notes were. Music. Dork. ;)
For those who need to know... these clippers hum a B flat. ;-)
BabyBoy is so much like me, and he is only five years old! I keep saying I'm going to have to apologize to him later in life. ;-) But seriously, oh my goodness, he is awesome.
What a fun and memorable moment. I loved it. And I love BabyBoy's love and gift of music. We can't wait to see what God does with him. :) Proud mama ;)
