We love books. Actually I really think Elias does like books, but I’m probably the bigger culprit at this point. I love going to the library and picking out books for us to read together. He understands turning pages, and I think he enjoys the pictures.
Do you see the book for me in that stack? The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl. After a first flip through, it looks fabulous. Totally our kind of cooking. It will be on my Christmas list!
We also do a lot of playing. I build cool towers and Elias knocks them down. Oh, and we listen, sing, and dance to Raffi! Raffi is who I remember from my childhood and it totally takes me down memory lane. Singable Songs For The Very Young: Great With A Peanut-Butter Sandwich would make a great Christmas present for those of you with little ones in the family.
And I am so grateful for the car seat in the corner. Not sure what Elias’ fascination with it is, but it entertains him for a good 20 minutes at a time. Time for me to get a few things done!
