Reading


Bliss!  I was with both my little men on Saturday...  After playing with Thomas the Train...and Percy... Benjamin grabbed a book, climbed up in his bed, and laid down to read.  Emerson decided to do the same.  Only as he was leaning back to lay down, his shoulders hit the bumper pads...no problem, he just stayed like that, leaning back to read his book.  Benjamin was loving his 'Goodnight Moon'... but he also loves 'Trucks' that Emerson was reading...
He decided to close up 'Goodnight Moon'....

and join his cousin in reading 'Trucks.'
What you have to understand about 'Trucks' is that each right side of the page has little windows that open and close.  On the left side, for example, there might be a red fire truck, a yellow backhoe, a blue cement mixer... and on the right side would be a little sliding door that says 'red.'  If you open the 'red' door, a matching picture of the red fire truck would be there.

The boys were loving opening and closing the little doors...
Benjamin was explaining to Emerson how it all worked...
Precious...they were precious!
I was loving listening to their conversations... they're such little boys now, buddies, friends...and of course, cousins!

The boys were so cute together! It was so much fun to see them talking to each other. Benjamin loved having his couz over to visit.
