What we’ve read so far, week 20

Is this really week 20? Week 19 did not involve a lot of continuous sleep and I’m not great at counting to begin with, but I think this is week 20. Despite the interrupted sleep (or perhaps they’re related), we’ve seen some big developmental changes lately, including rolling from back to tummy, sweeping her hands in front of her to gather toys (and suck on them, naturally), and pushing up on her hands instead of staying propped on her elbows. She’s also perfecting the “mic drop” move: obtaining a toy, holding it out to the side, and letting it fall to the floor. And there are some new sounds. Who knows what’s next? (Don’t say teeth.)

0305160913We visited the Belmont Public Library for the first time last week for their infant storytime (which was great!) and discovered that they have a separate shelf for Caldecott award and honor books, so we snagged Owl Moon and Extra Yarn (again) from there. (We just can’t get enough of the Barnett/Klassen team, so we picked up Sam and Dave Dig A Hole as well.) Pat the Zoo was a well-timed gift from friends, as Lyra is just beginning to reach for books to turn the pages (or pull them into her mouth).

Where is the Green Sheep? is a fun rhyming read-aloud, and Mr. Wuffles is delightfully weird (and almost entirely wordless, which allows the reader to be creative).

Giggle, Giggle, Quack did not live up to my expectations after Click, Clack, Moo; on the other hand, Rufus Goes to School is good but for once I think I liked the sequel better than the original (and the final endpaper of Rufus Goes to Sea makes me think Rufus may have a space adventure to come…)


A combination of Saturday-morning browsing at the Robbins Library (Weasels, I Am Blop!, Hooray for Hat!) and a hand-picked selection about animals, colors, and the ABCs from librarian Miss Emily. Wow! Said the Owl is a new favorite.



Bedtime favorites (Goodnight Moon, You Are My I Love You) and morning favorite (Happy Hippo, Angry Duck) on top, other recent reads below. She definitely likes the sound effects in Noisy Farm (moo, cock-a-doodle-do, oink, baa, neigh)!


Squishy Turtle and friends are crinkly and delicious.

I think all this reading is making her cuter.
