Okay, while I was trying to find a perfect angelic picture of Carter, to post a very non-angelic story (that story will come very soon), I came across the following pictures from his birthday a few weeks ago. I had to smile while I saw the progression after he opened this present. My very good friend, Jenny, was the photographer of these shots and I love how she got 4 great ones right in a row. And since I will post a very non-angelic story of him soon *sneak peak: the use of "no, no" and hitting*, I figured I should at least try to balance out the negative with a positive! What can I say, the kid LOVES books. And I know I have mentioned it a few times, but I have never seen a kid get so excited about books at such an early age. I just want to bottle it up and use some of it when he is 10 and fighting me to read a book-report book. What? he will never do that!
Anyway, I love these pics!! And no, he isn't excited about the Elmo, because he really doesn't know who Elmo is, yet!
After taking off the wrapping paper
Checking out the Title (okay maybe checking out Elmo)
Showing off his new book.
A few of his favorite books right now are:
Knuffle Bunny: a Cautionary Tale by: Mo Willems - He literally starts shaking more and more until the climax at the end.
Fisher Price My Little People Farm by : Doris Tomasellie - Yes he still LOVES this book (check out his Birthday Post)
Lift the Flap First Learning by: Sue Hendra and Phil Babb - Are you seeing a flap theme?
Now, I want to know what your child's favorite books are?
