Read your heart out!

This is the scene when I walked into Allikaye's room...this is happening when she was supposed to be napping...silly silly! So she looked up at me...then went right back to her independent reading time... I watched for awhile and witnessed first hand how she reaches all these books and pulls them into her crib...
Ummm...mom?...I'm reading here....
Can you close the door on your way out?...This alphabet book is super interesting...

How cute is that??? Maybe I should put a bookshelf next to Eli's bed so then he could at least read during his nap time, rather than screaming his head off!

What a little dolly! So sweet! I can't wait for the day that Lilyana does cute "sneaky" stuff like this...and to capture it on film!

She is so adorable, a gal after my own bookworm heart.

I love that quote.

Porgie LOVES books too. Sometimes she asks me to read the same book so many times, that I hide it when she isn't looking. I am a horrible mommy.
