So I realized (and am slightly shocked) that I barely have a month to finish my 50 before 5 list! How is it possible that my baby- my LITTLE BABY is about to be 5 in a month??? I am not even dealing with that right now!
Anyway, we are both home sick, so I went through her library & pulled all of the books on the list we own. I allowed her to choose 3 plus I borrowed "I will love you forever" from my class. So... on my bed sick and pitiful, Sami & I read:
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom- she enjoyed counting all the way to 100 at the end of the book. :)
I will Love you Forever- and no, I did not make it through the book without crying. She didn't notice since my voice is already hoarse from being sick. Such a sweet story that just reminds me of how fast both of my babies are growing up! :(
Goodnight Moon- I still know this one from when Ashlyn was little. It was her favorite & we read it almost every night. It will always have a soft spot in my heart & will always remind me of my first sweet baby.
Green Eggs and Ham- Sami likes this one. She likes to tell me where Mr. Knox does NOT want to eat them. :)
This was probably the most attentive Sami has been in a while for books. No ipad, no "reading" other books while I was reading, just good ol listening and asking questions about the story or pictures. It was nice. We will see how she does the next time. I still have a few books I need to "find" that I know our library does not carry. Of course, we all know I don't mind buying them... ;)
