Sorry to those who don't like family pics. When they are whistle-related, I feel compelled to post them.

Sorry, many things are song cues for me.

Very cute pic. I vote both.

She can only play one note, but she plays it well.
(There's a Sweetheart pun here, but I just can't bring myself to get it out...)

So, does little Joey just grab up a whistle and start tootin, or do you set up these pictures?
A cutie-pie, either way...

If my own experience is any indication, kids just pick up whistles..
Though the other day I was playing, and my son suddenly went running out of the room as fast as he could. I thought I'd run him off, when just as suddenly he came running back into the room with a bodhran in his hands that he threw down on the chair next to me and started hammering away on.

Oh, how I wish that were a joke ;)

(I think he was inspired by the Rogues at Scaroborough Faire here, since he kept wanting to go up on stage and play)

Very cute pic Jessie!

She picks up all sorts of instruments and starts playing them: whistles, recorders, ocarinas, flutes, harmonicas, pianos (well, she doesn't pick them up). She cires when I close the instrument trunk.

No toy chest at Jessie's house. Only instrument trunks :P

An instrument trunk is a good idea... Something the size of a deadman's chest.
You could have felt-lined shelves for woodwinds, and large spaces for drums and strings.
Hmmm....

You know my parents finally had it with the fact that I had usurped the coffee table in the living room as a instument/sheet music/musical accesries table so I told them to get me a trunk needless to say they didn't so now every thing is in my closet *luckily* I have a big closet.

VERY cute pic.

My wife, 4-year-old, and I stopped at Ralph Sweet's place on the way up to New Hampshire a couple of weeks ago. As I was primarily interested in the shop, Danielle and Alyssa were just meandering around -- his place is in a very cool location, in an old mill by a stream. He saw they were getting bored after awhile, and took them 'round back to a black raspberry patch to let them pick and eat. This was wonderful, especially since we were missing our raspberries back here. Ralph is way cool, as is Walt!

Everyone who has met them in person says they're really nice. I have talked to them only on the phone. I think they've heard something bad about me (or maybe they didn't like that I said their high whistles were loud and their flute embouchures varied), because I've never had anything other than strained, awkward conversations on the phone with them. Oh well.

Hi Jessie, Thanks for sharing that great picture with us. Joey Rose is getting even more cute! Such pretty eyes!

I have been wondering how your autoharp playing is going? I have been thinking about getting one myself.

Cheers,
Kathy :)

Hi, Kathy. :)

I have not been playing the autoharp enough (not every day), but I did a concert on it about a month ago. It's a wonderful instrument. In fact, now I've gotten my sister-in-law into it (I gave her a lesson and she totally took to it) and I just got her one for her birthday (it hasn't arrived yet). Strings don't come naturally to me...I wonder if my strumming will ever sound like anything other than a beginner.

Jesse:
First and foremost, beautiful child.

I have worked with children all my life.. Children have the urgency to always pick up object and put them in their mouths. A study performed about 10 years ago here in the U.S. and I believe in the north east region showed data that little girls have more of a oral fixation than boys at the same age and I beleive the age group studied was between 1 and 3 years of age. Little girls desired a pacifier more than little boys.
