Gracen adores books.  In fact, although I’m sure they’re out there, in all the years I’ve spent with little ones, I don’t think I’ve ever met another one year old who genuinely loves books and reading as much as she does. We start our days reading, end our days reading, and sprinkle stories throughout our mornings and afternoons. It’s not something we only do together either… When the house grows a little too quiet, 9 times out of 10, she can be found in a quiet corner snuggled up with a book.  And if I’m being completely truthful, I’d mention the fact that we have a basket specifically for itty bitty ‘bedtime books’ that Gracen very seriously sorts through each night before picking one to sleep with (I know, I know… Not a good comfort object, but you’d totally let go of all judgement if you heard her little voice reading to her bear each night before drifting off to sleep… It melts my mama heart into a pile of mush.)  Here are a few little moments from our bookworm’s day…  If there’s anything she likes more than actually reading books, it’s being asked questions about what she sees in books.

  1. I know first hand that once you read one book to her, if you’re visiting, you better expect to read a lot of books while you’re there! And once she figures out you’ll get the special books from up high, watch out! 🙂

    1. Oh yes, you sure do! Luckily we’ve managed to {mostly} get out of the top shelf book phase… It was starting to drive me a little batty – she was obsessing over them constantly!

  2. Paul said when he was younger he used to sleep with his books. He would pick out ten or more and Lorraine would find him later that night covered in books asleep.

    1. You know, now that you mention that, I think I remember that! When we’d go to Grandma and Grandpa’s house, he’d sneak off from the group, lay on his bed and read for what felt like FOREVER. You’ll probably have a couple of little bookworms on your hands too!
