This year for Easter, Brown Grandma and Grandpa Bill gave Oliver a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble. We thought it would be fun to go pick up Dad from work [for the 1 hour that we get to spend with him on Mondays] and go pick out a couple of books.
O really likes the lift-the-flap books. We picked one out for him and then decided to also get a "learning" book. I thought about buying Hands are not for Hitting [since he's been having a little problem with this] But Everyone Poops seemed to be more of his style.
As soon as we got home, he pulled the books out of the bag and we sat down right in the middle of the hallway and read each book a couple of times. He then proceeded to take the books to the green couch and enjoy them on his own.
Many times, I've caught him reading books around the house and jabbering along to them. He has a great jabber...could it be from all his reading??? Who knows, but it's fun to watch him in his own world learning and just being Oliver.
