As our son grows older and bigger, we noticed how attentive he is in his surroundings. He even imitates what he saw on TV and what others are doing. Recently, he will start singing every time he hears the alphabet songs. And when we went to church several weeks ago, he imitates what the drummer is doing on the stage. I think he had a great time doing it because when we’re back in the house, he used the old tin can of his milk and used it as a drum.
And I’m pretty sure that once he’s old enough he would appreciate it more then he probably would like to hear the sounds of the marvelous cymbals. Perhaps, later on he would want to try tinkering and explore other instruments as well. The only thing with him right now is that he is so active that he keeps on running around the house. So he won’t be staying in one area for long and before you knew it, he’s no longer interested with the drums. But I must tell you that he’ll return to his tin can drum again and will innocently strike it repeatedly with a thin stick.
With the way he is running around the house, I am just worried about his safety as he tries to imitate whatever he saw on TV. He’s been dancing as well and mimics those difficult moves. Then he starts climbing at the back of our sofa too which is quite dangerous if no one is around to watch him. It is probably the cause when he sustained a greenstick fracture on his left collar bone earlier this month.
