four months after she was gifted this lovely drum, we still think it was a good idea. sure, it’s noisy, but she really enjoys her time playing it and practices concepts like hard and soft and loud and quiet. i’ll admit at the end of the night if she’s really banging loudly it can wear on my nerves a bit, but then again, it’s a great way for her to burn out the last of her energy before going to bed.


before drumming zelda showed us how her sticks could also make a violin.


and then she brought the noise, er, i mean music.


there’s a nice echo in the base of the drum.

warning, the video may be loud since zelda doesn’t hold back when she’s drumming. click the link below to see the video.

while in dever last weekend zelda got the chance to take in a little live music care of her uncle austin and his friend, mike.  she even joined in a little on the recorder.

i am off in the wee hours tomorrow for san antonio and my first time away from little z for more than a night.  i know she’s in papa’s good care, but i have to admit, i’m nervous and already looking forward to our video chat tomorrow evening.
