As the librarian of the family, she is also filling his bookshelves. In honor of the late Maurice Sendak.


Little books for little boys

I know you think you popped a few weeks ago… But I think you popped this week. You look pregnant from the front now in your pictures.

My mom read me Runaway Bunny when I was little. I still remember the story! A childhood favorite for sure :)

Yep, I see a soccer ball under your shirt! So cute! I love the owl onesie! Is that handmade?

I love reading to my little girl. I use PaperbackSwap.com all the time for books for me and for her. Books for me I usually swap but I just keep the books I get for her and add them to her library. Some of our favorite books are Llama Llama Red Pajama, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton, and Horton Hears a Who.

Don’t know about paperbackSwap.com. Will check it out!

The onesie from your mom is adorable!! Cuddling and reading books together is just one of many favorite things about being a mom…looks like you have a great collection already :)


6 Andrea May 19, 2012 at 11:03 am

Love The Frog and the Toad and Little Bear! Good selection, he will love it :)


7 Averie @ Averie Cooks May 19, 2012 at 11:43 am

That sheet print is PERFECT! Wow…it’s like it was MADE for that room and your theme. Great price!

And great soccer ball :)

I love the onesie that your mom got the baby! It is so adorable! Owls can be so cute!

I love those Target sheets! That is a reasonable price for sheets! I may have to get them.

So glad the bears are enjoying the little books. Do read them Little Bear, too.


10 Angie May 19, 2012 at 3:01 pm

Do you have goodnite moon? It’s a good one i’ve read to lots of kids.


11 KERF May 19, 2012 at 3:06 pm

Not yet, but I love that book


12 Claritza May 22, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Have you seen the “Good Night Our World” board books which cover morning to night and four seasons in various cities, regions, states, and places, referencing local places? One is Goodnight Virginia.


13 jenny May 19, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Your belly sure has popped!
I haven’t been reading all that long, so I might have missed it, but why do you reference the number 26 so frequently?


14 KERF May 19, 2012 at 5:48 pm

It’s my birthday and lucky number


15 Suz May 19, 2012 at 11:57 pm

Love The Runaway bunny, Goodnight Moon, The very hungry caterpillar. It is fun to start your book collection.


16 Kat May 20, 2012 at 12:05 am

LOOOOVE target. happy 25 weeks!


17 jenny May 20, 2012 at 1:06 am

Oh right. So what sort of luck has the number 26 brought you?


18 KERF May 20, 2012 at 9:41 am

Not sure you can measure luck!


19 jenny May 20, 2012 at 4:21 pm

I agree with you there! You do seem to focus on 26 a lot though, I thought it must have so much more significance to you than just the date you were born!


20 KERF May 20, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Well I think it spiraled out of control since the day I was born :) I see the number everywhere!


21 Olivia May 20, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Hahaha, like the crazy guy in that movie The Number 23.


22 Lily May 20, 2012 at 8:19 am

I’m not sure if you have ‘Love you forever’ yet, but it’s a must! … in my humble opinion :)


23 Josie @ Skinny Way Of Life May 20, 2012 at 11:19 pm

WARNING: you WILL cry. but it is a must read : )


24 Nicole May 20, 2012 at 12:25 pm

My favorite for my boys was Jamberry by Bruce Degan (and SO appropriate for you with all the jam you put in your oats 😉


25 Nancy May 20, 2012 at 6:19 pm

We have that same little box of Sendak books :-) I love Runaway Bunny. (Personally, I find “Love You Forever” to be really creepy – but that’s the joy of kids books – there’s something for everyone to love!)


26 Jeanette May 21, 2012 at 9:08 am

I have to agree, I just didn’t want to say it! :)

Little Bear is one of my favorites and you can’t go wrong with The Hungry Caterpiller and Good Night Moon. At one point I had read Good Night Moon so often I knew it by heart and would recite it to my son when he was a little guy, if we were driving late at night and he needed calming :)


27 Jackie May 20, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Loving bears new addition of the goodmama and the wee wee tee pee hat! LOL


28 Lindsay @ Fuel My Family May 20, 2012 at 9:35 pm

Love the cloth diaper in that picture, very cute!


29 Katie May 20, 2012 at 10:17 pm

“Guess How Much I Love You” by Sam McBratney is my favorite childrens’ book. Never fails to make me tear up! I don’t have children yet, but I look forward to reading them that book someday.


30 Diane May 21, 2012 at 10:17 am

I second Goodnight Moon, Very Hungry Caterpiller. Have to have Brown Bear, Brown Bear too.

My kids both loved this book to pieces:


You get to tuck the baby animals into bed. My four year old still likes to play with it.


31 Diane May 21, 2012 at 10:19 am

Forgot my kids’ other favorite


Takes you through the seasons, with beautiful pictures by Richard Scarry.


32 Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac May 21, 2012 at 12:53 pm

You look great!!!!


33 Pauline June 10, 2012 at 3:53 am

Oh how cute, a Little Bear book! I’m forty now and grew up with those (I’m from Holland, luckily those books have been translated in a lot of languages!), I loved them when I was a little girl, my mom read them to me every night! Your little boy will love those, too! :-)
