Boys and Books
I'm so thankful our boys love reading books! I don't ever read to them enough, I'd rather be up doing things, and there is always so much to do! A couple times a day I make myself sit down and read them a book or two. It's special snuggle time, books teach them so much, and they love it. Every time I sit down to nurse Davey, I'm reading either my Bible or a good book. I'm really enjoying this discipline!
Brady and Clark are wearing the hats I knit them for Christmas. I need to make one for Davey so he can match too!
I found that setting books out on the stairs or other places in the house, encourages them to read. I'll pick a few books off the shelve they haven't seen for a while and display them on the stairs.
Brady is full of questions! and stories! Constantly! He never stops talking. I have to pray for patience!
Even as I write, Brady is talking to me and Clark is on my lap, so if my words don't make sense, it's because I'm also having conversation with a 1 & 3 year old. Earlier, Brady was asking when, where, and why we got our computer??? How funny to think that the first year + of our marriage we didn't have a computer! I didn't have a cell phone either! It wasn't until 4 years ago, we really started using a computer! We use it for so many things now, crazy!
