I am so happy to report that Addie is finally LOVING books. As we know, each and every child is different, but after seeing Carter's love of books start at 12 months, I was getting a little worried about Miss Addison.
But I need not worry. In the last 2 weeks, Addison has become very attached her books. Of the more than 150 we have, I notice her gravitating to the same 7. I still remember Carter's first favorite 7!
She is infatuated with Elmo and the Sesame Street characters (4 of the 7 books include Elmo!) She has this habit of kissing every single character on each page before she turns it.
Last night, the four of us were in the living room watching Polar Express and realized Addie was no where to be found. Blake and I got up to look in her normal spots - our office, our closet or on her tricycle to find them all empty. We walked past Carter's room to see this....
She had crawled up in his bed ALL BY HERSELF WITH BOOKS and was just reading! One of the coolest thing we had ever seen. We love how she completely associates Carter's bed with the reading zone and this has become the VERY COMMON scene in our house. They will stay up there together 20 minutes just reading by themselves.
