the sam book

Levi loves to read. Lucky for him, his mama loves to read children's books too...except when I have to read the same book ten times in a row. I don't so much love that. Thankfully, Levi sometimes likes to "read" to himself sometimes too.

Lately he has started coming up with his own titles for all of his favorite books. He likes to read the "dog book" and "tractor book" and "farm book" and "baby brother book"...there are so many more. He named Green Eggs and Ham the "Sam book". Cute. It is definitely one of his favorites and definitely not one of his dad's favorites. Don't worry Levi, I like it too.

Levi was super excited the day we got out Griffin's new "Sam" clothes. He had the biggest smile on his face when I told him Griffin's shirt was just like his Sam book.

 So we got out Levi's Sam book and he read it to Griffin in his Sam outfit.

 He read it over and over and over. And then he wanted me to read it over and over and over.

I may need to get Levi his own Sam shirt someday. Thanks B family for Griffin's cute outfit. We all love it...especially Levi!

So sweet. You have the most beautiful little family!

I hear you about the over and over again thing, my little one is obsessed with the "Old MacDonald" song. All day, everyday, over and over. It is enough to make a Mama go crazy!

My daughter had a "Hop On Pop" shirt when she was little. I have saved it for this next little guy on the way! She TOO likes to read the same books OVER and OVER! Some, we are okay with, but others....not so much! She has lately let us pick the book out because she knows if she picks the same one too many times, we won't read it! LOL!

I'm sure you hear this all the time, but enjoy every little moment! The time goes so fast. My girls are now 7.5 and 9 and it seems like just yesterday they were Levi and Griffin's size. Every age is a blessing, but the stage you're experiencing is so easy to try to just "survive" - don't do that. Thrive instead! You already look like you are doing a great job of that! Blessings to you - and the boys are precious!

When my daughter was 12 or 13, we were at the doctor and she found Dr Seuss' One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. And yes I had to read it to her. We both enjoyed that childhood memory and she was still my little girl.

I don't know that I have ever left a comment on here before now, but I have read your blog for quite some time. Your family is such a blessing. :)
Green Eggs and Ham was my son's favorite book also. He knew it word for word because we read it to him SO MANY TIMES!! He's 9 now and loves to read. :)
