Books, books, books

Posted on

A few weeks ago we rearranged one of our shelves in our living room to house all of Mason’s books. Since then he has loved to crawl over to the bookshelf and grab his books. Sometimes he will sit quietly with each one- sometimes chewing them and sometimes flipping the pages. But most often he will select a book and hold it above his head and make a “ugh?” noise. We’ve learned that this is his polite request coo and he wants a book read to him. Most of the time we catch the hint and when we sit with him on the floor his eyes light up and he smiles from ear to ear.

Does he sit through the whole book? Nope. Does he close it midway through and hand us another book? Yes. It is fun? Of course

Although Mason has an entire shelf of books, he commonly only requests to be read a few. They are, in no particular order:

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See
Happy Baby: Puppy & Friends
Children of Wonder Series
In My Nest
& a Photo book that has our photos in it

Even though the books can be a little repetitive, it’s been fun to introduce them into Mason’s life. We both could probably read Brown Bear in our sleep…in fact Elaine and I were quizzing each about the order of the animals and both scored 100%.   As he grows, I know that I’m excited to go to used book stores, pick out fun books and read more with him.

I’ve tried to capture the book request process in the following photos. Enjoy!

    If that doesn’t just warm my heart. In about 10 days Grandpa and I will take our turns doing the reading.

  2. love! i went to a used bookstore the other day and they have a whole cart of free used books for kids to pick out…when you come visit we can grab some that might interest him. 🙂

    Really enjoyed the “Books” account of Mason’s relationship with his bookshelf and the treasures he finds there. Lots of Linda’s genes working in that guy who is just a couple of steps short of his 1st birthday. Great photos, too! Thanks for sharing! G G’pa Watson
