It’s been a busy few weeks and while we haven’t been doing as much reading as I’d like, we’ve still been getting some reading done!
On my second library run for Mason, I picked up Pajama Time, There’s a Wocket in My Pocket, and Baby Talk. Pajama Time is an oversized book and he loves it, especially when SuperDad reads it to him! He enjoys staring at the faces in Baby Talk and was not at all impressed with the Wockets, even if they were in Pockets.
We also read a lot of Birthday Monsters (those mean mean monsters!) and just this weekend, Mason went over to his bookshelf, pulled down The Foot Book and threw it in my lap, which nearly made me cry from happiness, even though I’m sure it was a total fluke! Especially considering he didn’t stick around to HEAR it. But still, he gave me a book. Awwww!
Last Tuesday, he got sent home from daycare with a fever and I have to admit, I LOVED him being in that super cuddly “hold me mommy” mode because I totally took advantage and made him sit through 8 or 9 books. Considering having him get through more than 3 pages without wandering away is usually a struggle, it was sooo nice to read to a cuddly little baby.
His favorite book to page through continues to be his Bunny Hugs book (pictured) and he’s finally started flipping the pages in his electronic book to hear it talk instead of slamming it shut to hear Bye Bye! over and over! (Thank God!)
Mommy’s Reading Corner
With SuperDad’s help, I’ve been doing an AWESOME job making reading a priority lately. Since I last posted, I’ve read Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky (loved it), Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult (really liked it), Save as Draft by Cavanaugh Lee (liked it), Shadow Tag by Louise Erdlich (didn’t like it), Like Dandelion Dust by Karen Kingsbury (loved it even though I totally didn’t realize I was in for a semi-religious book, oops), Rescue by Anita Shreve (liked it), Still Missing by Chevy Stevens (loved it and canot believe that this is her first book!), and Between Friends by Debbie Macomber. And yes, I read all of those in March. One weekend? I read four books!! OMG. I’m pretty sure nailing my 40 books in 2011 goal is going to be a piece of cake. If you’re on GoodReads, shoot me a friend request
Anyway, what have you guys read this month? What have you loved? Hated? Been enjoying with your kids? I’d love to hear about it!
