Embrace the Camera

Something awesome happened.  My girl, she likes books.

I am a total bibliophile.  It is my every hope that Ruby will be someday too.  I had tried reading to her in the past... she just wasn't into it.  In the past week, however, something clicked.  She likes books!  We can sit in her chair in the nursery and read several of them at a time.  I'm in heaven.

Keith needs to work on his photography skills...

Her fave right now is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.  Unbelievably, I hadn't read it before she was born.  I knew it was wildly popular though, and when I was pregnant, I used some of my Scholastic Book Club teacher points to "buy" a whole bunch of books for her.  With Chicka Chika Boom Boom came Chicka Chicka 1,2,3.  She likes that one too, especially the end sheets with the numbers on them.  Love, love, love it.  She'll also tolerate Dr. Seuss books if they're not too wordy (hello Go Dog Go!), but doesn't have the attention span for the Berenstain Bears yet.

She will.  I can't wait.

Linking up with Emily today!
