Just a simple lo of Alyssa and her books. I know I've already done a lo with her "reading", but she just does it so often and the other lo was focused more on the discovery of her doing this. Anyway... I really thought it was just the pictures and bright colors that kept her attention, but it's apparently not. She's just as happy when she gets her hands on one of Will's books from his bedside table. I mean, seriously, Mere Christianity?? What in the world could this do for her?? But she will sit there and stare at those pages as if she knows exactly what they say. So funny!!! I wish I could catch her with that book, but it's never worked out. So I just used this shot of the Elmo book... obviously, with my phobia of primary colors, I made all but Alyssa b/w in the photo. ha! the placement of the date stamp was inspired by one of LeanneLang's latest. and of course, SamsMom's fabulous "staggered" text. thanks girls!! ------ JOURNALING: This is something you do so often. Something about sitting and flipping through a book seems to make you so happy and you will sit in pure contentment and inspect every inch of whatever book you have. From "All About Puppies" by Elmo to "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis. HUH?
