MK's first guitar!!

This is how things go down around our house when it comes to gift giving:

Luke: We should buy MK a guitar.
Me: Awesome idea. Let's get it for her birthday.

Luke immediately sits down with the iPad to do a little research.

Luke: I found one.
Me: Awesome and I have an Amazon giftcard.

10 minutes later it's ordered and on it's way with free expedited shipping.

Me: We are going to wait and give it to her for her birthday, right?
Luke: Like that will ever happen with you.
Me: I can wait. Can you wait?
Luke: Yes.

Four days later I call Luke at work to tell him the guitar arrived. I could tell he was a little giddy. Being the musician in the family, this is something that I know he's looked forward to long before we were even prego.

Immediately when he go home he went to open the box. Then we both gave each other the "we aren't actually going to wait until September to give it to her" look and Luke gets it tuned and ready to give to her.
Madelyn was happily playing with macaroni and cheese and eating her Play-doh playing with Play-doh and eating her macaroni and cheese. We told her we had a surprise for her and of course she looked up with curious little eyes.
And then (this is my favorite part) as Luke hands it to her he says, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!". Haha!
That's the way we do it around here. If we buy a gift even two weeks early, we can't hold on to it! I just thought it was funny that he added that in there despite the fact that her birthday is TWO months away!
She LOVES it. We love that she loves it. Immediately she wanted to "go stairs guitar Daddy!" (translation: go upstairs to play guitars with Daddy) since that's where she goes with him when he is playing his guitar!
I know these two will love making music together for many years to come.
She's definitely one proud little girl!


  1. Precious! My baby girl has a guitar, too... because her Daddy is the musician. He loves that she loves it. She likes to get on stage and pretend to be singing like her Daddy does. AND don't worry, I do the same thing with gifts.... I can't wait!

  2. She looks sooooooooo proud of that guitar!!


Thank you for the comment love! :)
