The Sound of Music
We finally got a piano.
Emily has been taking piano lessons for about 2 months now and is already at a stage where she needs a piano at home in order to practice.
Both Justin and I wanted to have a piano in the house anyway. Even though neither of us can play, we both think a piano makes a home much more "homey". Having a piano in the house really makes me wish I knew how to play. It's never too late to learn, right? Maybe I'll get some initiative and either learn online, or really get out of my comfort zone and take lessons.
But for now I hear the sweet (?) melodies composed by my two littles. Emily can play a few very simple songs and likes to make up her own songs, too. Jacob just bangs his little "old man hands" on the keys and laughs when he plays really low notes.
We think the piano looks at home here. It needs to be tuned, but we want to wait a while until it acclimatizes to our house. Anyone know a good piano tuner?
