The joy of reading

5.27.2012

As I mentioned earlier this week, we love to read as a family.
We read together throughout the day.
And although Madeline is just sounding out CVC words, she loves to "read" right along with us.
Sometimes they got a bit distracted by birds on the feeder, band aids, 
playing knock-knock, or howling like wolves.
Still, we had a fun afternoon.














 










I guess all that reading tired Caleb out.
He wanted to put Madeline down for her nap that afternoon.
Seems somebody else needed one too.

Your pictures were done beautifully. I love how you kept one in focus and then one blurry...the angles and the way you captured the light. You did a great job! LOVE LOVE books at our house too. We read every night...so important!

Love these photos! You are so fortunate to have such a large sofa and window for Caleb and Madeline to read by. You should be so very proud of the both of them and how well they read. Fabulous job mommy!

Your two beauties are beyond precious. I love reading and have a weakness for buying kiddie books! Love your pictures, the lighting is incredible.

Would love to know what lens you use. :)

I love that your kids love to read. That copy of Wizard of Oz reminds me of the copy we had when I was a kid.

So sweet - clearly your kiddos have an incredibly special bond and you capture that so beautifully!
Love that they both ended up napping... not much cuter than a sleeping child :)

I think that is great!! I absolutely adore seeing my kids choose to sit & read rather than play with toys. Warms my heart.
