This Kid LOVES Books

Have I mentioned before how much Mr. Ramsey loves books. Well, he does. He'll warm right up to any stranger if they'll just read to him. I've been reading to him since he was a few weeks old and at the time I thought why bother because he was just staring at me like I was crazy. As soon as he could turn pages though he was hooked. He loves most any book and will even pick up a novel on occasion as pretend to read it. I love to watch his little brain grow and it is neat when he can anticipate what part of the story is coming up next. Sometime I catch him just sitting quietly pointing at the pictures and talking to himself. Needless to say we frequent the library as often as possible.

Here Ramsey is reading one of my books from my childhood called "If I found A Whistful Unicorn" It has become one of his favorites too which is pretty neat. It has the date my Mom and Dad gave it to me on the inside (1985) along with a note from them. Man, I'm getting old but it means I get to have a family of my own and I love it!

I am so envious of your consignment shopping...what a steal. Our local place shut down last fall, so I guess I will live vicariously through your brown bag shopping! Here's to looking handsome on a dime=)
