Baby Blues

For the last several months (more like 13 months) Rob and I have played the harmonica for Cora.  She's always gotten a big kick out of it, and secretly, it is a lot of fun for us too...now, if only we really knew what we were doing.

When we play she usually responds with a combination of giggling, clapping, knee-bending wobbly dancing movement.  The harmonica is usually in her toy baskets in the living room and she occasionally checks it out and will mouth (slobber) on it.  Well, she's figured out what to do with it.  We're still trying to get her to move it from side to side so it isn't just the same two notes with every breath.  Note the big 'ole baby belly that's sucking in and out.  I love it that she cracks herself up with this.

We've had so much fun with the harmonica that I am seriously considering buying a couple more in different keys.  I picture our house with instruments all over the place that we can all explore.  Anyone know where I can score an African drum?

  1. Sounds like she's already got a good start on learning to blow harp. Maybe she'll get good and we can have a family band! I thought someone else was playing when the vid first started.
