We've been reading to Edie since she was born and really amped up our reading routine when she was about 6 months old, or so. In the last few weeks, she has become increasingly interested in books. She pages through them, looks at the pictures and feels the pages. The bookshelf is the first thing she goes to when we are playing in her room. It's really fun to see her become so interested in books and we hope that will blossom into a love of reading in the future. By the way, her favorite book so far is Goodnight Moon.
Edie has been mimicking us a lot this week, from fun little sounds, to combing her hair. After a few good lessons of hugging inanimate objects, she has been giving the stuffed animal Drunk-Uncle-Fox big hugs.
Speaking of sounds, there has been a lot of vowels coming out of her little mouth this week. The best part? Her o's totally sound upper mid-western (very, very, very long).
Word of the week: BeeeeeeBawl
