Books, books and more books

Bailey has a new found obsession with her books, and I am so happy! I love to read...although it seems I never have the time to any more! and I have hoped that Bailey would have a love for reading as well. The love of books started with her just wanting to play with them. She thought it was so funny to pull them all down from her bookshelf in her room and shuffle them around on the floor. That eventually led to her wanting us to read to her. Granted, she would usually lose interest and start chewing on the book :) Now, she is doing much better and we actually get through most of the stories. The cutest thing, however, has started in the last couple of days. She is "reading" her books herself. She sits with the book in her lap, turns the pages and just jibber jabbers the whole way through! And she'll nod her head along the way as if she's really telling a story. I love to sit and watch her do this. I will have to snap a picture soon!

YAY!! Us first grade teachers love it when kids already have a love for reading :) It makes our jobs much easier!

Her reading to herself is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever heard. I love it!
