Reading Time...

One of Jorja's favorite things to do is grab one of her many books, bring it to Shane or me, turn around and then sit down in our laps while we read to her. I love that she enjoys it so much and that (most of the time) will sit still and hang on every word we say! Some of her favorites include:


Now, these are not near all of her favorites but these are high on the list... and are completely and fully memorized by mom!! At any rate... One night Jorja had just gotten out of the bath (thus the extra curly fro you see) and was getting ready to go bed and I had just finished reading to her "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and when I finished she grabbed the book, laid on her belly in the middle of the room, opened the book and proceeded to point to each of the pictures while "reading" to us! It was AWESOME! Shane & I sat there stunned and beaming with smiles. I couldn't get the camera out fast enough to catch her actually laying on her belly "reading" to us but, I did catch her once she got up and put the book on the table and continued to "read". I did discover though how I must sound when I read to her because she has a pretty good rhythm going on. I hope you enjoy the story Jorja's telling as much as we do! Oh and have I mentioned lately how smart, wonderful and adorable I think my kid is?? Ok, just checkin...

She is so smart! She loves her books and the makes Nannie so happy. One of my favorite things is to read with her. I love it when she tells me the name of her books.
