Ivy reads a bedtime story

Recently, Ivy revealed a secret. She can read.

Ok, not really. She's just been memorizing her books as we read to her... Suddenly, she would start "reading" lines from whatever we were reading. Then it turned into whole pages, and whole books.

For a few months, she's been requesting one of my favorite childhood books, Little Witch's Big Night by Deborah Hautzig, which she seems to love. When she first started "reading" it to me, she was just doing one particular page but then the other night, she read nearly the whole book. I made her start over and do it again so I could record it.

So settle in and let Ivy read you to sleep. Just ignore the nose picking in the beginning...

Five Months Old

Elliott is five months old. He is a delicious cream biscuit, full of buttery rolls. He loves his sisters and his kitties, and still loves to nap in the Moby wrap. He moves around by rolling over and over and over. He just started sitting in his big boy seat at the table and loves to watch us eat. He is the sweetest little guy and we love him so much. 

The light was just right the other day so I got a few photos of my roly poly butterball. Such a handsome little buddy.

I had a similar photo shoot with Alice when she was about this same age and I see so many similarities. I was just looking through photos from her very early months and see such a resemblance to Elliott. I'm going to have to get some of their photos side by side, and Ivy, too!
