Ian Says: Baby Callum Is The Next Elton John! Wait Until You Hear His Musical Genius!

I can’t believe I didn’t spot it sooner. The clues were staring us in the face.

They’re both pudgy, bald, Brits who are prone to tantrums! And as I discovered this week, my son, Callum might just be as musically gifted as the Rocket Man himself, Elton John!

We didn’t realize Callum was blessed with such a talent until Jill thrust a new toy into his chubby mitts this week, and watched in awe as he bashed away at the miniature keyboard.

You can see for yourself in the video below!

It may not sound like much, but compared to his mother and me – he’s a virtuoso. And he’s not even four-months-old yet. The next step is to buy him a series of flamboyant onesies and point his diapered-up behind in the direction of the nearest stage.

On a more serious note, it has been fascinating watching Callum’s motor skills develop super-fast over the last few weeks.When he was born, he didn’t know what his arms were for, and couldn’t really control them. They’d flail around and instinctively shoot forward during his sleep.In the last few months he has figured out how to reach his face and he now grapples with his bottle during feed time, and takes great pleasure in sucking on his whole fist! He’s also developed a vice-like grip, whether it be his bottle, our fingers or his favorite toys.

This week he has been swinging his arms around, bashing an imaginary drum with mighty force.

And most impressive of all, he’s started to understand cause and effect. He recognizes his actions prompt a reaction. By clutching his bottle and shoving it towards his face, he gets fed, and – as demonstrated in the video – when he bashes his hand on a musical toy, he can make sounds. It’s still early days for this miniature musical maestro, but don’t be surprised to see him gracing a stage in a decade or two — even it’s more Stomp than Elton himself.

Don’t forget to share your funny baby pics, videos and stories with us!
