Fluffy Hair and Picture Books

This little guy has had that little tuft of hair standing straight up ever since his last bath. We have combed, wet, and combed it again countless times, but it just WILL not laying down, haha! It's adorable...

One of my very favorite things to do with my little brothers and sisters is to all pile on my bed with blankets and picture books. I love a sweet story with perfect pictures :). Daddy was laughing at me last night, because Tori and Mama were telling the little ones that they had to find me before they started reading the new children's books that had just come in the mail, because they both knew that if they read them without my knowledge, there would deep disappointment ;). Josiah has been very into books lately, and Tori wanted some new stories to read to him, and she thought the Pigeon books would be the very thing.

"Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus" was first introduced to us by my Aunt. She is constantly either taking the little ones to the library, or going there and picking some books up before we get there (depending on how long we'll be staying), to read while we're visiting. I was about seven when this was one of the ones she brought out, and I spent a good bit of my time during the rest of the visit drawing the pigeon until I had him "perfect". Haha! It WAS exactly like the one in the book... looking at him now, that isn't all that impressive ;), but at that time I thought it was, haha!

The ones Tori got this time were a couple of the ones with the duckling in it as well... I think they are her favorite simply because the duckling reminds her so much of Peter, haha! She was reading them last night, and it has the duckling "scootity-scoot-scoot"ing onto the page, and she was like, "Peter! You even scoot when you walk! I don't how, but that's what you do!"

Have a good night! I'm off to do some reading with a couple small people :).
