I'm a proud mama

As a mom with a degree in English, having children that would be interested in and enjoy reading is something that is important to me. There are far too many benefits that I don't want them to miss out on. So, we read to Jeffrey pretty consistently. He loves it. He likes to touch the books and scans the pages very intently.

He got about 5 Easter books, and we've had them laying on his comforter (yes, he plays on a comforter since baby blankets are worthless since he moves so much) in the corner. He's consistently avoided his other toys (and there are tons- he's a tiny bit spoiled) and gone to the books! It makes me smile each and every time! His favorte books are a soft book called "Fluffy Chick and Friends" and a board book called "Farm." My only goal now is to encourage this and make sure to maintain this excitement/love for reading!

Good job Jeffrey! We are slowly buying board books for James right now.
