Books and Babies

Ok, so Little Pet is climbing on her rocking chair right now, standing backwards and rocking, trying to pull JB's neuro texts down. Juju is lounging in front of an old tape of Theodore the Tugboat, supposedly watching little Pet (payment 10 skittles/hour), so I can get a few things done. I did hear him do a nice reading of "Nuts to You" as I was walking down the back stairs to throw the laundry in, so he really is earning those treat for his lunch! Little Miss Petunia is addicted to books these day and grunts with excitement when she sees the busy spider, hungry caterpillar or brown bear. She also adores the lift the flap books by Karen Katz, especially the "Where is Baby's Pumpkin" book that's got shiny bats, velvet kitties and glossy candy apples. Yay- Halloween! There is another series of books that she likes called Find the Kitten (Puppy, Bird...) that we found second hand. They are old and some of the art is odd, but they are fun to look at, except the last page of the Bird book shows the pidgen on a window sill in the rain with it's head tucked under it's wing. Juju and JB think the bird looks dead, but of course the bird is just sleeping in the rain, at least I hope!

Congratulations to the newest member of the extended Monpon family: Vida Mae, the III! And to all the new babies this past year: Jack, Brodie, Noah, Sydney, Sophie, Isaiah, Audrey, Tess and Theo. Yea Babies!
