And I'm Passing It On!

In a lovely addendum to last night's post...

Brynna walked up to where I was sitting on the couch today, pointed at one of her board books, and made the sign for "book," which is the first time I've seen her do that, though I realized over the weekend that she recognized the spoken word "book." She was asking me to read to her! I picked up the book—it was Sandra Boynton's Barnyard Dance—and we read it together, with Brynna turning the pages (she's been doing that part for awhile), and me saying the words. She was very intrigued by "stamp your feet" and "clap your hands" and kept bending over to stamp my feet for me.

Then we did Brown Bear Brown Bear, What Do You See?

Watching your kid fall in love with books—priceless.
