Reading, Reading, and More Reading

 Evie LOVES to read.  She loves books and everything about them.  I've always tried to read to her, even when she was very little, but she didn't take much interest in books until she was about 11 or 12 months old. 

Reading in her bedroom last summer
She pulls every book off of the shelf, and then she looks at them each over and over again.  Now that she's a little older, she picks up as many books as she can carry and brings them to us to read to her.  I never thought that I'd be able to read the same children's book 13658512968454163 times in one day without going crazy...but she loves it!!! 

Don't bother me!  I'm reading!!!
She also pulls her books into her play tent, just to have some privacy while reading.  I think this is adorable, but she never lets me in with her.  :(

I love that Evie loves books.  It gives me a chance to put her on my lap and snuggle and read.  

I'm happy that she has an appreciation for books.  I hope that it lasts her whole life.

How exciting! I love reading books and I hope Arianna is the same way too. She likes those touchy and colorful books.

I started reading to all my babies when they were little ones too and it really makes a difference. Now my six year old reads to the little ones. I have my definite faves now too and I am sure I have read them at least 21984529846190246-93654 times. Been following you on twitter for awhile but just realized I dont follow your blog...well I will fix that! :)
