We are great lovers of reading, and one of the things we’ve been doing while getting ready for baby is collecting children’s books. Reading is such a wonderful way to spend quality time with a child, cuddling together and fully focuing your attention on them. It’s also a shared ritual–reading favorite books over and over again, “doing” the voices of the characters, talking about the pictures. We can’t wait to share some of our favorite stories with a little one.
In the picture, Lindsay is reading to her nieces (on the iPad — kinds these days! we usually read regular books :)). Sorry it’s sidesways! We cannot figure out how to rotate the picture in the blog program on this website. In any case, it’s a picture of the kinds of special, shared moments we value.
