We all know how much Jake loooooves his books (and if you don't know, stop by my house...I'd be happy to let you read him book after book after book for a little while!) and last night after I got home from work, we started the marathon of reading. One of his favorite books is called Mirror Me and one of the pages has a big picture of a sun with a face and the caption says "The sun has a sunny smile-say cheese!".
So last night, we weren't reading that one (yet) but we were reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar....and we came to a page with a picture of a sun, so I read the caption in the book then said the line from Mirror Me ("the sun has a sunny smile...") and as soon as I said it, Jake sat straight up in my lap, looked at me, looked at his book basket, looked back at me, then scrambled off my lap. First, I couldn't figure out what was wrong....then I realized that he was reaching in the basket for Mirror Me!! Sure enough, he brought it over to me with a big smile on his face. :)
Here he is, sharing his book with Gracie...and the dishwasher.
