The Little Piano Boy (who needs a haircut!)

Because the month of December isn't busy enough, Carter's piano teacher decided to throw in an extra recital. If I sound Grinchy, forgive me, but Carter didn't bother to tell me about the recital until 3 DAYS BEFORE, so I had to wrangle up sitters for the little guys and cancel a few other Saturday plans, and I was a bit put out by the time we arrived to the recital.

All was forgiven when Carter stepped up to the 9-foot grand piano and played his Chopin piece. Okay, I know I'm a little biased, but... I had goosebumps. He works hard at the piano, and it was wonderful to see his hard work paying off. My dad ("Bampa") was visiting at the time, so Quinn, Taylor, my dad and I enjoyed the recital together.

And... sorry to go all "proud mama" on you, but if you're interested enough to see him playing, I posted it on YouTube under "Carter Bastian plays Fantasie Impromptu." hee hee- couldn't help myself!

Wow. I checked out the video, and I'll I can say is WOW. I get a little verklempt when Jordan accompanies the YW's choir...but Carter is a whole 'nother level. (Don't tell Jordan I said that.)

Oh my goodness girl. You are so funny. We rarely ever get to hear you "brag", if that is what we are calling it. I mean, the kid is a freakin GENIUS (piano and otherwise). Do you not remember that I video'd a few minutes of Carter on my last trip to see you, and made the cute grandma that sat next to me on the plane WATCH it? (Now that is bragging!)

Is the boy a sasquatch? I just saw him a couple months ago. I know women who would murder to have hair grow that quickly. What mulitvitamin is he on, anwyway?

Love and miss you.
