First Story Time

Today was such a special, fun day! My mom and I took Grace to story time at the library. Lance and I both love books (almost as much as my mom :). I've been so excited that Grace loves them too! She's at the age were she definitely has a say in which book she wants read and she'll let you know it too if you choose a different one :) Some of the gifts we have received for Grace that I love the most are books - The Giving Tree being one of my all-time favorites, although Grace is a wee bit young for that one! Her current favorites are anything Elmo, DOG, Mary had a Little Lamb, her ABC books, Baby Cakes, and Mama, Where Are You? . I asked Lance what his favorite book was as a child and he said Dr. Seuss, especially one about the zoo, although he couldn't remember the exact title. I don't remember what mine was, but I do remember loving La Pequena Lulu (Little Lulu). So if you read this, drop me a line and let me know your favorites - I'm always looking for great books!

Here's Grace waiting for story time Grace loved the songs in between the two books the storyteller read. She actually protested when each of the songs was over! She was such a trooper, too - especially since she'd skipped her nap so we could make it to the library on time.

And some sweet ones...Grace with Noonie Mama and Grace Great memories for sure!

Today, Noonie taught Grace some new words: "doctor" and "neck" (a little background, Noonie retired from her medical practice as a pediatrician/neonatologist when I was 8 weeks pregnant with Grace, hence the significance of the word "doctor" :)

The extended version :)

Thanks, mom! So sweet!!!

My favorite book when I was little was "Mother, Mother I want another" and "Over in the Meadow".

Carson's favorite book is "Noisy Farm"!

Shane's favorite book when he was little was "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"...a little later in life!

Sweet videos...thank you for sharing! I love looking at your blog seeing Miss Grace grow up to a young lady!

I think the Zoo one your hubby is talking about may be "Put me in the Zoo" by Robert Lopshire ??? That is my son's current favorite. It has the little suess logo on the spine but a different author- I dunno what is up with that???

Thanks so much, Allison!!! I asked Lance if that was the one and after looking it up online he said it was!!! So excited to know the name to share with Grace what her daddy's favorite book was as a child :)
P.S. LOVE that Olivia set !!
