Talmage LOVES books. He likes them WAY more than any of his toys. In fact, most of his toys will hold his attention for approximately 30 seconds, but he will play with his books all day long. He loves emptying the bottom shelf of his bookshelf and sitting in the pile of books reading.
He has a definite preference for which books are his favorite, too. If he doesn't like a book, he will pick it up, toss it aside, and pick up another one until he comes to one he likes. Then he will meticulously turn the pages one at a time, cooing and talking as he reads himself the book. When he finishes, he tosses the book aside and repeats the process...over and over and over again! He has a basket of books next to the rocking chair as well, and he loves to stand by the rocking chair, leaning down to select his books, and then lay the ones he likes out on his toybox. It is such an entertaining process!
This boy is just too fun to play with!
P.S. Only a week and a half until moving day!!! We bought a refrigerator today for our new place...can't wait to get away from the roaches! :)
