Someone is finally starting to show interest in books! We have been working on getting her to sit and let us read a book to her for a while now. While we were waiting I built up a huge library of books for her and had plans to read to her every night but that never panned out as she didn't show any interest or have any patience plus she likes to do everything her self so she wasn't keen on the idea of having someone read to her.
A couple of mornings ago she pulled this one off the shelf, brought it to me and actually let me read a story to her! No grabbing, no "mama I do it!", she snuggled up and let me read while she carefully looked over each illustration.
She likes to pretend she is reading to me too...sometimes the book is held upside down and the pages are flipped 6 or 7 at a time but she is getting the idea.
Of course it was a book about one of her favorite things....doggies :) She always likes to have her pillow & blanket with her and now she likes to carry this book everywhere too. Progress.
Other random things going on this last week that I don't want to forget:
- She calls her slippers her "slipperies"
- When she eats she says the food is going into her belly button
- I gave Pixie a bath the other morning and she sat by her the whole time saying "Pixie it's o.k., I love you" ♥
- As we were running errands this weekend a little voice from the backseat says "I pretty, I smart, I good"...it reminded me of this scene from The Help
