Reading


Reading is one of our favorite times of the day. Tracker is obsessed with books which makes me so happy. I love sitting down with him and seeing how excited he gets about what he is seeing. Animal books are by far the favorites. Close second is his Mickey Mouse book. That one is really just a find Mickey and scream "MICKEY" then turn the page in a quick hurry to find him again. There isn't much "reading" that happens. I have become slightly obsessed with trying to find old books that I remember reading when I was young. Many of them I cant remember the name but I remember the memories with them or what was in the book. I have been able to find a few and LOVE them so so much. Some of them are not really picture books for a toddler so I will have to wait a little while longer until I can read them to Track. I started Makenzies book collection early in my pregnancy with her. Reading to her every night was mine and Ryan's favorite thing. She loved it and it will always be something we treasure. We have continued to grow our book collection and seem to keep running out of space for them all. Tracker was blessed with a TON of new books for his birthday and I couldn't have been happier about that.
I love giving books as gifts each holiday and have decided to pack the holiday books up with the holiday decor so when I get the new holiday stuff out- out comes new books :)
Our Christmas book collection is obviously much bigger than Valentines, Easter, St. Patricks Day etc... but its a fun thing I like doing for Tracker and Makenzie. I write in their book when they got it and maybe someday Tracker can take his with him when he has his own kids. 
(Heaven help me, I cant even think about that)




I am always on the lookout for fun and different books. 
Make sure you let me know if you have any that are MUSTs in your library!
Here are a few of our FAVORITES.

Hey Kendra, I have been following your blog for a few years now. I got an email today and thought of you. Babyleggings.com has a deal right now if you enter WTEVALENTINE14 at checkout, you can get 5 pairs of leggings and you just pay the $12.95 shipping. My baby has been hospitalized twice now, and I think it's an amazing thing that you do with these leggings.

Kendra - I am new to your blog; I found it through the Sullengers and I would really like to follow your new blog. You never know when you might be able to say something to make someonelse feel better or someone might say something that makes me feel better and that is worth a lot. And I feel like I can't do a lot for all of your babies, but I can pray!! My email address is: smith_lynn_58@yahoo.com. Thanks.
PS I am not a "stalker" lol

I Love You Stinky Face was a book I bought Braxten on his 2 month birthday and quickly became a favorite :)) Our must have is Bye-Bye Big Bad Bully Bug... Braxten insists on reading it before nap time and now has the entire thing memorized and it is so precious hearing him "read" it!
