It is adorable. We have a video of nate doing this in bed at about the same age. It's such a riot. She is so cute!!!

Save me one of those big thighs, and some piggies to eat when I get home...

That's awesome.

Eli won't even sit on my lap and let me read a book. We read to him while he runs around. And we have to keep him from throwing the books we are trying to read across the room. It actually makes me a little sad because I always imagined sitting there reading a book to my kid as a nice calm activity.

I'm sure you can sympathize with not really having ANY nice calm activities the baby will partake in.

Oh well.

She's super cute and I particularly like when she kissed the book (or tried to eat it... whichever, still cute)

Way to go Mama! As a kindergarten teacher, I can tell that Baby F is one little girl that has been read to a LOT!
Although, I have to admit that I haven't read to MY baby as much as I did the first two, but she does this too, so she MUST be seeing me read to the older boys!

kt said...

so, so sweet, Mrs. F! She's growing up into quite the little one!!

Julie said...

Get that Baby a cup of coffee and she's a mini version of you:)

I love how she grabs the binky and plunks it in her mouth at the end. She is so scrumptious!!

Mrs. Furious said...

Thanks guys :)
At least her cuteness outweighs her sleeplessness... so far ;)



Nutmeg,
Up until a little bit ago she'd have nothing to do with books either. Kid always loved reading and being read to (still does) and I think the switch for Baby happened only because she is now obsessed with being like Kid and doing everything Kid does. Her patience for being read to is still somewhat lacking ;)



Danielle,
Oh God I read to Kid for hours a day... Baby?... not so much ;) But thankfully she is modeling Kid's behavior and it will all workout in the end... right?!?

Too funny, I was watching Baby F's first experimental reading video, when my own 2 yr old walked up and said..."cute baby, will you buy it for me?" After some brief explanation that it's a real baby and I can't buy her for you- my daughter says, " well, I want her, can Santa bring her to me, then?" Obviously, I had to say yes, so we'll negotiate the details later!!!lol

Mrs. Furious said...

Canteloupe,
LOL... that is hilarious!!

Andrea said...

She is sooo cute!

Robin said...

God, I love it when they do that. Mine is sitting at an old computer on the floor pretending to type and babbling like crazy. I'm not sure what she is saying, but whatever it is it sounds very important.

My three year old, on the other hand has just given himself a stiffy and came up to me and said, "your penis is so big!" Lord help me. (He doesn't understand the difference between mine and yours, and refers to himself in the second person.)

Mrs. Furious said...

Robin,
LOL!!! Thank God I don't have a boy... who knew you had to deal with that so early!?!


Thanks Andrea :)

Heather said...

She's so insanely cute. I loved that she kept going back and forth to other books.

Anonymous said...

OMG...when she kissed the book...PRECIOUS!!!
that's what it's all about...capturing and remembering moments like these... to hell with all the other stuff!

Mrs. F -

Oh yeah, they discover themselves very early (like before they are one.) His noticing that it gets big is fairly new, but he is fascinated by it. Yeah, lovely.

Boys are gross. ;)

Mrs. Furious said...

Hi Linda!
Thanks :)



Heather,
yes, she's indecisive even at 1 ;)


Robin,
Oh Jesus... I could not handle that!

BABYBUG!!! We have Babybug, too! She's just sooo excited and so adorable in her excitement. Mine is the same way and walks around yelling, "Books! Books!" I want to know how we make that continue into adulthood. (I still want to yell, "Books! Books!" every time I drive by a Borders, BTW.)

Deb said...

Umm... I just read Robin's comment. I am not looking forward to that, but at least we know their excitement over "stiffies" (is that how you pluralize that?) never diminishes into adulthood.

AWWWW! What a cutie :)

Preppy Mama said...

That is the cutest thing I have seen! How precious is she?? You make me want to have another baby!!
