Hi.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Lots of clothes, oodles of beauty, a few books, and some food. I love hearing from you - so drop me a line! xoxo

A few weekends ago, my mom and I hosted a baby shower for my sister, Hope.  This is the first baby in our family, so it has been really exciting.  I cannot stop spoiling him already. :) These are just a few photos from my iPhone of the details at the shower.  

Of course, one of the gifts I got Baby Parker were some books.  I found these fantastic BabyLit books that are based on the classics.  The illustrations are so cute and the stories are obviously great.  I got him the three pictured above but would love to complete the collection.  There is nothing better than the gift of reading!

Hope is a teacher and knows how important reading is early on.  Parker isn't even officially here yet, and she reads the same book, Quick as a Cricket, to him every night in order to establish reading as a calming experience and introduce him to rhyme and rhythm.  

Hope's Favorite Quote:

better to sail with a moody good captain than a laughing bad one

-from Moby-Dick 

Why You Should Read Them to Your Little One (or Someone Else's):

These are a great way to introduce the classics at a very young age.  Familiarizing children with great authors and stories can lead to a life long love of reading.
