I'm with you on #4472. We jam with the Piano Guys here at the Drees home as well. Great music!

Oh my goodness Sophia talks SO much better than the boys did at her age. Does this not revolutionize your life? She hardly has any tantrums like they did. I think a lot of it had to do with communication frustration. I'm so happy she can already verbally communicate her feelings, telling me "I'm scared" etc.
