Silas's interest in books has amped up in the past few weeks. It's like he has a whole new level of attention span. He can sit and look through an entire book, make the sounds of the animals, flip back and forth between the pages. We spend every evening at bedtime looking at his favorites while Daddy reads to Willow. His favorites are board books: Carl, Eric Carl, books with photos of babies, everyday objects etc and any books illustrated by the Plasticine artist Barbara Read...he just loves her illustrations!
