Ava Grace's Closet: What that baby Wore : The Reader

What that baby Wore : The Reader

I was that kid reading a book while watching t.v.
The one you could find at the library. Alone. All the time.
It's funny that someone as loud as me spent most of her formative years in such a quiet place.
I still love a good book.
Can get lost in them. And still prefer sometimes to be alone with a good book to being anywhere else.
I began reading to each of my children early on.
Isabella always demanded a bedtime story. Or two. Or three.
She could recite every page of Madeline before she could read. I would turn the pages, she would know them by memory. 
I'm hoping her baby sister is following in her footsteps ::
I wonder when she's too quiet, what she may be up to.
Sometimes I'm lucky and find her catching up on some reading in her room.
I try, but she hasn't quite grasped the concept of my reading to her just yet.
But she'll get there. 
Back on the lookout for trouble ::
Quiet moments never last long around here.
On Ava:
Sweater - Zara Kids
Jeans - Old Navy

  7. I love the sweater! Reading is SO important to do with your kids and it's great to start them at such a young age. My little one loves her books and spreads them all over the floor and looks at them one by one. She also has the cutest hair!

  9. Success! I can comment :)

    I would love for Isaac to be a reader early on. I've been reading to him before bed since he was 2 months old. He even turns the pages all by himself now! ANd sometimes I'll catch him sitting with a book just flipping the pages. It makes me so happy :)

  11. Bookworm babies are lovely, aren't they. I'm adoring revisiting books from my own childhood with my daughter. So many latent memories come flooding back.
    Love her little sweater. I'm a fan of non-traditional girly colours for baby lasses!

  13. Reading to your children is absolutely on the best things you can do for them while theyre growing up. Ava is so cute...if only I lived closer I'd have Ben and her play all the time. By the way, do you believe in arranged marriages? ;)
