What a typical evening in our house looks like. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Recently, Sam has become quite attached to this one book, Farm. I notice he’ll go over and sit there and just start reading to himself, in the corner. And it’s always this one book. And it’s pretty much the best thing ever. As a book lover and avid reader myself, one of my biggest wishes has been for my kids to love reading as much as I do- or more! And to see him flipping through pages and getting so much delight from reading at such a young age?! It absolutely melts me. Another thing he’s doing now is bringing a book to me and nestling himself into my lap for a reading session. I MEAN. All of my dreams, they are coming true right before my very eyes, people! It’s pretty fantastic.
It’s like one of my very favorite quotes says- “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
I hope you live a thousand lives, my sweet boy.
He’s so cute!! I can’t wait till Sophie’s at that stage :) right now she has more fun trying to eat the books than read them.

I’m just going to go ahead and assume now that I’ll end up crying every time I read one of your posts. Such a sweet boy, and he’s going to make the sweetest big brother!
My kids ebbed and flowed with their reading. My Marine son veered away from it for a long time. Too social. Other things kept his attention. But they all have naturally gone back in that direction because we learn by example. Such a great gift.
I love this. My boy loves to read as well. His favorite is an animal book and he has started reading back to me after I finish reading to him. Love these moments.
Oh my goodness, so cute!!! My boy is showing the same love for books as well. He’s only 6 months old, but he’ll sit in my lap and we read for as long as he’s entertained… which usually turns out to be 6 books! haha!
I don’t think I will ever get over how cute Sam is. He melts my heart! :) PS. I love that quote! I really should read more than I do…. thanks for the prompt ;)
That photo of Zack and Sam is precious. Yay little readers.
Isn’t it the cutest?! Gahhh I love those two. :)
