Our girls love books…always have, in some form or fashion. Over the past couple of weeks, though, it seems like all they want to do is read and be read to.
They’ve also been in a snuggly mood quite a bit of the time.
Put the two together, and I just can’t turn down their invitations to join them on the couch.
Most mornings after breakfast, I take a little time to drink some coffee and catch up on the computer, while they play independently. They usually do really well with this routine.
But after a while, they’ve been asking me to come read to them.
They’ve been gathering some blankets and making themselves little nests on the couch…with a space in between themselves for Mommy.
How can I resist such an invitation???
And last night, when we were snuggled on the couch after supper, in a very similar pose, Baby A somehow got even sweeter. She was holding the book we were reading, and she kept wiggling around, bumping my arm. I told her it was hard for Mommy to read when she wasn’t holding the book still.
“I’m trying to get closer to you,” she said.
I know this phase won’t last forever, so I’m doing my best to appreciate the moment, and soaking it all in while I can.
(I am sharing the love with Daddy when he gets home from work, though...Mama's voice box needs a rest from time to time!)
