Yo-Yo Maya

A couple months ago, Maya started talking about cellos. At first we wondered if she even knew what a cello was?!? We don't know how it started but this little girl has a passion for cellos! If we are listening to classical music she picks out the cellos and will say excitedly "I hear the cellos!" She requests cello music to listen to when she's going to bed...so we've been borrowing Yo-Yo-Ma CDs from the library. I love to discover these little passions!

Recenly we've been babysitting an old violin. I have let the girls try it out. Maya knows it's a violin but refuses to play it like a violin and refers to it as the cello. Her attention span is short but she's actually been improving over the last month. (I don't get that zing down my spine every time now!)


I guess if she ever becomes a famous celloist here's her beginning...

And plucking...

Oh, come on…you have to let her play the cello. Cellists are the best…you have one smart girl there (with excellent taste, might I add)! Brooke
