I love this! :-) He really was exploring, too - had to test everything out to see how it worked. I do have to say that I think I love his furrowed brow when the "stick" goes flying the most - just an awesome look.
Noah tells me almost daily that he wants to be a drummer when he grows up and play in the Tops in Blue band. I told him Aleck plays the drums and he thought that was pretty cool. Looks like you might have another drummer in the family!
