Books are for Babies

Books are for babies

Little Vin had a big breakthrough this week when he learned that books are more fun to open than eat. This is him, holding his complimentary copy of Goodnight Moon. I think this is the standard welcome gift for being born. We haven't read it much, but it's pretty beat up anyway. Most of his little board books have worn spines, not from reading, but from being chewed by the boy.

Shelby is partial to the occasional magazine and sometimes junk mail, but we don't let her eat books. As you can see from her disinterest, Shelby thinks books are a waste of space if you can't munch on them, which is pretty much how she feels about most things.

Looks like Vin is settling in to be a good student already!!! Maybe Shelby is a little PO.ed because she has been put aside for the moment for something else interesting to the Boy????....Oh Shelby...learn to share your Boy...it's the first of many...

If she can't eat it, sleep on it or play tug with it, what's the point?

I think Vin will be smart and inquisitive and open minded about discovering the world...he has Shelby as his sidekick!

Well doesn't he look cozy? In his warm sweater and heat radiating pug nearby. And, I think those are mommy feet as well.

Priscilla, Shelby doesn't radiate heat, she absorbs it. Like a sponge.
