New Generation of Readers

Nothing could make me happier. The Happy Baby loves books! When he was born, one of my sisters sent a box, full of almost every classic book children love to read. Since then, AdventureMan and I have been supplementing with all our own favorites. Happy Baby loves to sit in a lap and read a book, and he is also happy reading on his own.

He LOVES trucks and buses and cars, LOL, he is all boy:

This weekend the Happy Baby discovered heaven-on-earth – the Pensacola National Aviation Museum. He loves the cockpits, with all those buttons and levers and wheels. He only screamed when it was time to move on to the next exhibit.

I was babysitting the other day and they left us with the iPad, which he also loves. I thought I knew how things worked, but I was wrong. I didn’t know anything about Angry Birds or Zombies in the Garden, and he showed me. 18 months old. I just had to laugh. Already, I am learning from him!

  1. Looks like you gotta a gearhead on your hands 🙂 In a few years when he’s older and your car breaks down, you’ll be glad to have someone that pops open the hood and actually knows what he’s doing.

    spending time with toddlers is always inspiring and also a great learning experience. The reason being is that they are still themselves and not trying to be anyone else. May God bless him for ya.

  2. Thank you, Bader 🙂 We feel mightily blessed to have this sweet boy in our lives. His Dad and his great-grandfather were people who loved to take things apart to see how they work. You are right, it is so much fun to see things through his fresh eyes. He also hears things we filter out – train whistles, airplanes taking off – and he stops still and LISTENS!
