A Love for Books


Read at least two books with Fox every day.

That was a goal I set for myself around a month ago when I realized Fox just wasn't digging books. I have always loved reading, and Camaron's love for great literature scored him major points while we were dating. And introducing Fox to some of my favorite written characters is something I have been looking forward to for a long time. So I made my goal, wrote it down, and so far I've stuck to it.

Fox loves books now! It makes me so happy when we'll be playing with his toys and then he'll just reach over, grab one of his books, and then hand it to me so I can read it to him. My favorite is when he tuns the pages himself and points at the pictures. It's great! The only problem is that he loves a few of his books a little too much. Seriously, we just read "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" six times. You sure you want me to read it to you again? Oh well, if this is what it takes to get him to start reading and loving Harry Potter, then so be it.



***Let it be known that Fox has a lot more hair than this picture shows. He does not have a skullet. Also, no, I do not know what my left arm is doing in the above photo. Obviously it was too cool to capture in focus:)

  1. Hooray for teaching kids to love reading! Kent isn't a big fan of reading--at all. But I'm determined to make my kids love it anyway...even if it requires me to read Green Eggs and Ham about a gazillion times over (and that is a LONG book.)

    We love going to the library every week and picking out new books, and Ellie has finally stopped pulling every.single.book off the shelves while we are there, so hooray for that. :)
