    Aw this is so cute!

    I am doing a rhetorical analysis of your blog for my AP Composition Class (because your blog is awesome and I fell in love with it. Seriously.) It is our term final project and I have a few questions :)
    1. Where did you get the idea for your top title picture? / Why did you choose your title?
    2. What is your favorite style feature in your writing?

  3. Your picture remind me of my son when he playing drum. I love to hear his laugh.

  4. My 9 month old loves playing the drums too! But more than anything he is fascinated when we play guitar. I would love to get him one but they all seem too old. What baby guitar do you have for Toby?

  5. He’s so cute!

  6. babies + drums = good times had by all!

  10. oh so cute!
    My son who is 2yo is obsessed with making noise …heu sorry gorgeous music. First it started with his baby drums, then it moved to frantically “playing” on the baby piano to now actually using any kind of object to smash it on the living room table. My beloved table is ruined BUT he sounds so prod making that music and dancing to out that I can’t get myself to stop him!
    Good luck with Toby’s developing talent :)
