Reading. We love it!
Caleb and I spend most afternoons reading to each other while Madeline naps.
(She gets read to also, just at different times of the day.)
On any given day, we read aloud to each other from two different books.
At the moment, Caleb is wrapping up
Little House on the Prairie and Mr. Popper's Penguins.
I'm reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Door in the Wall (to him.)
The other day, after we finished reading to each other, I thought I would grab my camera
for a few shots of the two of us.
Now, understand that I knew, prior to taking the shots,
how handholding a camera does a fabulous job at enhancing one's nose.
So please, pay no attention to the distortion of my nose in the photos below.
It's not really that large.
I had no idea Caleb was resting so peacefully on my shoulder until after I viewed the photo.
Isn't he precious?
Well, we couldn't keep things totally serious.
Some face making was in order.
He is such a funny, little guy.
Anyway, I do love our afternoons reading together.
It's such a special time.
I also snapped this photo of Madeline playing "tot school", as we call it,
on my iPhone early one morning.
The light trickling in the room fell only on her body.
I love the low light effect.
