She looks so innocent here. Of course not long after I took this picture, she ripped the front cover off the book! I don’t know where she found the strength. But upon further examination, the binding was already pretty weak from repeated abuse.
Allie loves when we read her stories. We read a story every night before bed and I think she looks forward to it and, even if shes still all wound up, it gets her in the bedtime mode. We also have some books that we keep downstairs that she brings us to read to her. Many times, she asks us to read them many times in one sitting. They say repetition is key at this age, and I am seeing that here!
