i love books. i love reading. i love elijah.
put 'em all together and BAM! my face hurts from smiling.
last week i began reading stuart little with elijah.
i read while he sits on my lap, while he plays playdoh or blocks,
or right before his quiet/nap/bed time. those times are one of my favorite parts of the day.
we read loads of other books, with more pictures and fewer words.
something about sharing these classics i first read myself as a little girl is really special.
so far we've read: alice in wonderland, charlotte's web, wizard of oz and winnie the pooh.
i've read to elijah since the day we brought him home.
i wanted him to know my voice, to feel me near.
i think it also helped me bond to him, you know?
ok, now i'm gonna cry.
elijah seems to really love reading time, i pray he always will!
