In the past few weeks, Noah's interest in books has grown tremendously. He wants us to read to him all the time. We have a basket full of his books and he loves to walk over, pick one of his favorites, and bring it over to our laps. He loves to crawl up in our lap while we read and doesn't try to turn the page too soon anymore. It's really enjoyable to watch him take each page in and look at all the colors and shapes. His favorites right now are Goodnight Moon, Where's Spot, and Llama Llama Red Pajama.
Michael just finished a gate for our back porch so Noah could play without me needing to chase him up and down the stairs the entire time, and also so he doesn't go head first down them when he's trying to act like he's a big boy. The weather has been amazing the past two days so we've swung open the back door and enjoyed some sunshine on the porch. I wanted Noah to have some sensory play time, but all I had was water and dry beans. It sounds simple, but he loved it. He played with the water, poured the beans from one container to the other, and got all kinds of wet.
