I’ve always known the importance of reading to kids from an early age, and since I’m a big reader myself, it wasn’t hard for me to make reading with my son a habit beginning when he was a newborn. He’s enjoyed books since he was tiny, but lately I’ve seen his interest in his board books grow even more. Often, he wants to spend 30 to 45 minutes at a time engaged with listening to the stories, looking at the pictures, and turning the pages. It has been so sweet to watch his love of books develop, and I so enjoy our precious reading time together each day.
Oliver and I are both “foodies” through and through. We love trying new foods and flavors together. When I was pregnant with our son and before I’d really researched baby-led weaning, we thought, “Oh no… what if we have a picky eater??”
