Loving the Books

One of Brynna's favorite pastimes these days is to crawl over to the bookshelf and pull all of her board books out onto the floor, where they can be opened and closed, carried around, stroked, and gnawed on. (I will note that I have seen in the developmental pediatrics literature a reference to chewing on books as an "early literacy skill." Brynna is very literate indeed, then, as the pages of her books are starting to get stuck together with drool.)

Having all the books out on the floor provides a nice Brynna-sized space on the shelf:

Sometimes she lets us take one of the books for long enough to actually read her a story:

But usually she lunges at the book unless she has something else to do (like nursing) to distract her. Alex caught this picture as he was reading her bedtime story this evening. What a nice post-shower mohawk! She might have enough hair to need combing, pretty soon.
