Read to me Da!
OK - she doesn't form complete sentences yet. But we've entered the book reading stage. Moments like the one in the first picture are very nice, yet very brief. More often we see glimpses of the second picture just before the reading material hits us in the face. No need to read the words. That takes too long. We need to see what's on the next page, now! Then when we get to the end of this one, we need to know what's in the next one even though we looked at that one not more than 5 minutes ago.
I know it won't be too long before no bedtime can pass without the traditional recital of Goodnight Moon. We have 2 copies, one with and one without the cigarette. Call me a curmudgeon, but I think I'll read Alondra the former when it's my turn. Matt and Lauren were exposed to that politically incorrect image as impressionable youth and I think they turned out just fine.
