In June 2006, I found this piece of music before we moved from Colorado and posted it here:
Yesterday, Maddie sat at the piano and carefully figured out every single note to Do-Re-Mi by ear, wrote down the note names on a piece of paper, got her beginning piano books out (she is just getting to the learning-to-read-music part), and painstakingly transcribed her own notes onto staff paper, including rests for the left hand. The measures/note values are off a little bit, but the melody is correct. She has had four piano lessons to date. I think I'm going to focus on how cool it is that Maddie loves piano so far, and not how ridiculous her mama was around the same age : )
Maddie in January 2005. She has always loved sitting at the piano... for the record, I've always loved sitting at the piano too, but apparently I was MUCH LAZIER.
