Mini Mozart Graduation

At the end of January, Dorian graduated from his Mini Mozart class at the Art City Music Academy.

He loved playing the drums. His cute teacher, Miss Laura, is sitting next to the keyboard, and the other mom is a girl I grew up with in Kaysville, who just happened to enroll in the same class! They played with lots of rhythm instruments. Dorian loved to dive through the hoop! He was a pro at the keyboard. I just liked this picture of his cute face. He was so proud to get his certificate of completion! He loved getting a sticker on his hand at the end of class each week.

This semester he has moved on to Toddler Tunes and is already loving it!

Clean White Shirt

Maybe I haven't posted for a while because I haven't taken many pictures or videos lately. Today I was going through photos from the summer of 2008, when Dorian was born, because I still haven't printed a single photo out of the thousands I have taken since he was born (20 months ago!). So I was trying to decide which ones to print, and feeling like I was choosing way too many but at the same time, not nearly enough. I think I have exactly one picture of myself as a newborn baby. I narrowed Dorian's down to 8 from his first day of life, and another 5 or 6 from the next day. That's as many pictures as my mom took of me during my first, I don't know, 2 or 3 YEARS of life. Do you think he will appreciate having so many pictures of himself, or do you think he will roll his eyes in boredom whenever I pull out the scrapbooks? Oh well, I'm not doing it for him, I'm doing it for his wife.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the last day this shirt was white (why did I let him eat an apple while wearing it?): I've moved all his toys into my office, so we hang out in there a lot. He likes to squeeze between the bookcase and the wall, and he pretty much always has a car or two in each hand. Wouldn't you like to see the rest of my bookshelf?
