CHILLI'S VIDEO BLOG: My 10-Month Old LOVES Reading Time...

 

 

I started reading to Donato when he was 3-months old. It quickly became my favorite activity. I'm a book worm. Before my son was born, I was reading at least one novel a week. I've always been "addicted" to books. My dream/wish is that Donato embraces reading and books as much as I have.

I initially read to him before naps and bedtime. Then, a couple of months ago, I started reading to him during play time. The books were different. They were more about learning than storytelling. Either way, Donato was being exposed to many different books throughout the day.

About 90% of his books were purchased at consignment stores...so we've saved a ton of money. However, we were running out of space in our makeshift book box. So...this past weekend, my husband and I bought a $22 bookcase from Target.

A few weeks ago, Donato started turning the pages for me while I read to him. I thought it was ADORABLE. Now, he anxiously awaits the opportunity. I had my husband videotape my little man and his page-turning skills. He's clearly more interested in that than the story itself...for now.
