Scrapbooking Daily Adventures in Love and Life

I Love You, Little Bear

KristinaComment

The most amazing thing happened yesterday.  As I was tidying up around the house, I felt a little tug on my jeans.  I looked down and found Katie holding a book.  With two hands she held it up and said, "Buh. Buh."  I smiled and said, "Would you like me to read to you?"  She nodded her head yes.  This is pretty huge for Kate.  Not only making a verbal request....but for a BOOK!!!  This teacher's heart went thump, thumpity, thump. Seriously folks, I could have cried!

We snuggled up on the sofa and I read, "I Love You, Little Bear."  It belongs to Nola, a gift that Granny gave her in Alaska. Kate gave her full attention and followed along. 

After the story was done, Katie-Hui continued to play with the book...babbling as she pretended to read.  

My baby loves books. Be Still My Heart.
