The Noggin toots his own horn (and a giveaway winner!)

Wednesday~July 1st, 2009

Asher is especially fond of a toy trumpet we found at a garage sale. (Yes, I bought a second-hand toy a child puts his or her mouth on and then blows saliva into. Sure, it probably has many foreign germs embedded inside of it, but I bought it anyway, just because Asher liked it so much. Ahem.) Anyway, my favorite parts of the video are when he plays the trumpet through his nose (brilliant), and then studies where to put his fingers very closely (brilliant), and then lastly, how he blows and blows and blows and then answers, "Uh huh!" when asked if he's dizzy. (which is hard to hear, but it's at the very end-the part where he looks a little drunk from all that light-headed tootin' of the horn.)

I can't even really describe what it's like for me to watch Asher enjoy life, his little personality blossoming in ways it just couldn't before. His pain and discomfort were stealing his ability to just have fun before his surgery and recovery. Now look at 'em! Oh how I love this boy...Enjoy!




(He rocks.)

He TOTALLY rocks. How cute is he?

He's a cute drunk. :)

He's adorable! And I love that you're actually ENCOURAGING him to make more noise...or, um, er...music. :)

Kristina P. said...

That is hilarious! So cute!

And I love that you used "Peace out." I say that at work all the time, so I can connect with the punk ass kids I work with. I think I just embarrass myself.

You're right...that was my LOL of the month! Normally I don't use it up on the first day!

Congrats to Rachel!

He rocks is putting it mildly. :) Love that boy. What a QT.

L.T. Elliot said...

I'm so proud of him!!! He figured it out and he made me laugh my guts! (Uh-huh...)

By the way, Heather, you have a GORGEOUS voice! I bet you sing like an angel!

Little boys equal fun.

Oh, my. That is SO funny. I wish my Z could come play with Asher - he's such a cutie!!! :)

Mylestones said...

Aha! So THIS is the "video-trumpet" item that appeared on your random list! (which you recited on twitter). And apparently I have taken stalking to a new level by remember something you "tweeted" weeks ago.
Anyway, the little man is crazy cute in motion--the still pictures don't do him justice!

Sheryl said...

he DOES rock! love that kid.

cannot believe that you purchased a toy for your child that has someone else's saliva in it! that is just wrong!!

Jami said...

SO cute! Love the swaying at the end.

Think of the second-hand toy as a vaccination of sorts. ;)

Rach@In His Hands said...

I am a proud band mama and nothing is better. So buy those second hand instruments. Those germs will just make him stronger.

My momma once said - about my elementary school trumpet playing - that I sounded like a dying cow. So... good luck in the years to come. He is cute though. ;)

I have had a port open to this post all afternoon waiting for the TV in here to go off so I can listen to this--so far it hasn't happened. I'm going to have to wait until last thing before beddy-by time. Can't wait!

Elizabeth said...

I love the part where he finally gets it to "toot." You can just see the look of success in his eyes. I just love that.

And I love the little Northern twang I could hear in your voice:)

Kate Coveny Hood said...

He is a doll! I love the serious expression while he's "tooting"

Kazzy said...

I do seem to remember posts when I first starting reading you a year agothT mentioned A's crying and fussiness. It's like everyone got surgery, huh, since he is so happy and content now? WHat a cutie!
