Reading in the Morning Sun

DenaDecember 10, 2013

Roman has always loved being read to. At just 3-months-old, he would sit quietly in amazement as I read entire books to him. Now, at 7-months, he is even more fond of his books. At my baby shower we had asked for books for the “Wishing Well.” I am so glad that we did, because we received the most beautiful, little library.

At the moment, Roman’s favourite book is, Where Is Baby’s Belly Button? (A Lift-the-Flap Book). He lights up at the fun, bright colours in the illustrations and gets so excited every time I lift a flap to reveal a piece of baby. I hope that he always has such a love for books. I’ve always been a book person myself. I was an English major in college and one of my favourite jobs was at Border’s bookstore. There is nothing like a good book, I say. Reading with Roman has been one of my greatest joys in motherhood so far.
^^^ Don’t let my light clothes fool you — there is snow & ice outside. It’s just toasty warm in our little house because of our wood-burning stove! ^^^^^^ How gorgeous are Roman’s blue eyes against our yellow bedroom walls? ^^^

Happy Tuesday, friends! xo

    I love all the colors in the photo! Even the yellow in the book matches the walls: )

    Sam loves when I read books to him. It makes me so happy. Baby Loves to Rock and GoodNight Moon our are favs.

      Thank you!! I didn’t plan for this to be so colour-coordinated, but it is. Lucky coincidence. I love Goodnight Moon. It’s a little challenging on Roman’s attention span for some reason. I’m sure he’ll come around to it soon.

    I love the color of your bedroom!

    Reading with Reagan has always been one of my favorite things, it’s so fun now that she’s learning to read and can help read along. I love it. I’m so glad she loves books as much as I do.

    Also, your baby shower was adorable!

    My Jian is a book worm. No matter how many times I have read to her she comes back for more. The same books…read by me for the 100th time. She has even memorized some.

      I’ve heard this from a lot of Mamas — that little ones love the same boks over & over. They find such comfort in repetition. <3
