cranky baby

what can you do if you have a not so happy baby? easy! sit him at the piano. gabe loves to play the piano. he bangs on the keys that are in front of him and then he even reaches over to try to play the lower and higher notes. i know absolutely nothing about playing music. i couldn't even find middle C. gabe loves music though. he was even singing while playing the piano today.

we got him a leap frog music table from the flea market ($8!) and it is one of his favorite toys. he loves it even more because he can stand up while he plays it. i was even able to leave him standing there playing while i went to get a glass of water from the kitchen. i know it doesn't seem like a big deal but gabe is still at the age where you can't really leave him alone.

gabe also has a favorite song. he loves "marry you" by bruno mars (except he likes the glee version). if we are in the car and he is being cranky i can turn it on and he usually calms down.
