Reading books aloud is one of my most favorite things to do with Sloane, and now Logan can get in on it too.  Since Logan can recently sit up, I will have her on my lap while Sloane sits next to me and I will read a book aloud to both of them. These moments make me feel like I couldn't ask for anything else in the world, I'm so content. It's also pretty cool to be around when Ken is reading aloud to them - I hope we keep doing this always. Ken and I have both remarked how much our reading stamina has increased since we first started reading aloud to Sloane when she was a baby. It's a skill I'm happy to acquire. 

A few of our favorite books these days:

Journey by Aaron Becker 

The Biggest Story: How the Snake Crusher brings us back to the Garden by Don Clark

Madeline in London by Ludwig Bemelmans

Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Milne

Peter Rabbit and Other Cherished Stories by Beatrix Potter

The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse by Miriam Norton

Walt Disney's Classic Storybook -

The Wild Christmas Reindeer by Jan Brett

Stuart Little by E. B. White

A friend also recently recommend Poems to Learn by Heart - this is next on our list!

  1. To have increased stamina for reading, It is like moms are getting
    muscles on their arms while they hold babies without knowing. I cannot stop smiling on Logan's expression on her face.
