Dear Baby

Dear Baby,

You are obsessed with books. Your current obsession is Dear Zoo.

On average we must read this book 10 times a day. Sometimes more.

Daddy and I know the entire thing off by heart.

Watching you flip the flaps warms my heart.

You are excited every single time we see an animal behind the flap.

The snake, the monkey, the elephant.

It doesn’t matter. Each time you flip that flap you smile.

Sometimes it’s annoying to read the book. Other times it’s fun.

I’m not sure which animal you like the best.

I like making the animals sounds when you flip the flaps.

Usually all of your animal sounds sound the same; qaack, and whoooo hooo.

I never know what to say when we see the giraffe. So I say nothing. Just read the words written on the page.

But you know, Princess Peach

My favourite words aren’t written on the pages of this book.

My favourite picture isn’t inside this book either.

It’s in my heart and I tell you ever time I read this book that

I prayed to g-d to send me an angel and he sent you 🙂

You were so cute. I decided to keep you.



  1. Awww! This is so cute 🙂

  2. This is truly so adorable and loved your message at the end 🙂

    It’s so funny how they find one book and refuse to read that and only that one! Sometimes I don’t think I can take any more “If You Give a Pig a Party”, but we keep reading b/c we love them so much, right? 🙂 Cute post!

  4. My daughter hasn’t chosen favourite books yet. So I am forcing her to listen to mine 🙂

    Great post!
