Fiddle Dee-Dee

On our way home from Vidalia, LA Saturday afternoon we stopped by to see Mamaw and Papaw in Lincoln county. Sara Madalin loves Mamaw and Papaw, but I think she's by far more of a Papaw's girl. And he eats it up.

She's also fond of their dog, Sam. She laughed and giggled every time he'd come close or wag his tail. He'd go to Papaw and Sara Madalin would go to Papaw. Sam would go to Mamaw and Sara Madalin would go to Mamaw.

Up to this point, Sara Madalin has never been in any room of their house much aside from the living room. At least not that she really remembers. This is the first time she has been to their house since she's started walking. And as many of you may know, now that she's walking it's a whole new world for her. She decided that she'd explore the entire house while we were there. She picked up her cup and she proceeded to take a tour of the kitchen and dining room. Then she went to the front bedroom. And finally, she went into the back bedroom. That's where Papaw keeps his instruments. He plays the fiddle in a band. She was curious about those instruments. So Papaw pulled out one of his fiddles and played some music for her. She was so still and attentive.

She LOVES music. Papaw loves music. I think it's a match made in heaven. Look at those smiles.

Oh, and when he let her touch the fiddle, she thought she was really doing something. Right after I snapped this picture, she looked at me as if to say, "Can you believe he's letting me touch this?" She doesn't know it, but Papaw doesn't let too many people touch his fiddles.

He also showed her the bow and talked to her about where she could touch it and where she shouldn't touch.

Patience Papaw. She'll be enrolled in violin/fiddle lessons soon enough.
