book worm!

Asher reading with daddy
All of a sudden, Asher has started to love books!  We have always had books around, but up until recently, they mostly got treated as chew toys or were ignored completely.  Now Asher will pick up a book and bring it to us, and sit in our laps while we read to him.  His favorite books are "Goodnight, Moon" (especially the page with the 3 little bears sitting in chairs), "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?" (his favorite page is the purple cat), "I Love You, Little One" (as seen above), and "The Poky Little Puppy."  It is a pleasure to read to him, have him pick things out on the page, and I will make animal noises and he will try to imitate me making them.  Eric and I are big readers, so what a relief that our children are starting to love books, too!

  1. Oh good! I'm happy to read this because we are in a similar boat! Jones likes to look through them, but only really on his terms...he's never wanted to sit and let me read a book to him...but the other morning, he pointed at his bookshelf for the first time and I asked him if he wanted to read a book and he giggled with happiness! YAY! I hope it is the beginning of good things like you have with Asher! :)
