I’ve been reading to Nathan since he was itty bitty. I remember vividly during his times of colic, reading Paddington Cleans Up over and over again was one of the few ways I could calm him down. So yeah, he’s always loved reading, and he has his favorite books that he plays with reads all by himself. Even though his “reading” usually means holding the books upside down and gnawing on them, he still reminds me of a miniature scholar the way he concentrates so hard on the words and the pictures.
Both Paul and I love to read and are hoping that Nathan will continue this trend as he grows. But I think I’ll wait until he actually grasps the concept a little better before I tell him when he’s holding the book upside down. Because it is TOO CUTE, y’all! He’ll hold the book upside down and continue to “read” it as if there is nothing in the world even a little bit strange about it.
I am seriously loving watching this little guy grow up and learn new things.
