Bedtime Stories

Posted by Heather at Thursday, February 09, 2012
Katy's current favorite books are (in no particular order); Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Snowballs, Five Little Piggies, Here Comes Kate! and On Top of Spaghetti. She would have us read them over and over and over and over and over again each and every single night. Katy loves these books so much that she has them practically memorized (Ted and I, too!).

The other day, I decided to mix things up a bit and see how much Katy had memorized by switching some of the words in the book. One of the lines in the book, Here Comes Kate! reads, "I wanted a dolly!" Instead, I read, "I wanted a Katy!" Katy looked at me, looked at the page in the book and then pointed to the words and said, "No, Mommy. Dolly." Check and noted, little Smarty Pants!

Katy loves to look at the pictures in the book. While she's oftentimes too wiggly to sit still for very long, I have caught her on more than one occasion sitting and looking at the pictures of various books- and not just baby board books. She will notice little things that Ted and I overlook. For example, in the book Snowballs, the snow people are made up of various objects, foods, etc. Katy was the first to notice that the Daddy Snowman's nose was made up of a strawberry and not a carrot, as most snowmen are made of. She's very observant and very good at remembering the sequence of stories. More than once, I've caught her saying phrases from books as if she's "reading" the book to her dolls.
