I have talked about this on this blog before, but my boys LOVE to read. They will look at books on their own, they will ask us to read and if people are over, one of the first things they ask them to do is read to them.
There are times when Keagan & Deker will each get a book, get up on our big blue chair with a blanket and read their books. What are their books of choice, anything to do with boys things: tractors, trains, airplanes, cars etc. For instance, the book they are reading in this picture below...Deker is reading a book called "Builder" which has pictures of tools & diggers. Keagan is reading a book called "I work with Digger" which is shaped like a digger.
I am focusing on letters to mainly get Keagan a chance to start learning to write his letters and so Deker will start recognizing his letters. So far, this has been a very good thing for all of us. It has also gotten them to be excited again about drawing and coloring. This week, they have gotten their crayons out about 4-5 different each day.
Keagan, likes to feed his bear (nursing like I do, I hope I am not traumatizing him). If we are sitting down to eat, he will want to feed him food as well, but I tell him no on that, because I don't want the mess. He also likes to put them in various beds so they can sleep. This gets even more fun because he will go in my room, close the door. He will then come out a few minutes later and stand in the hallway and then a minute later he says, I think he needs me to help him go to sleep.
They both also like to put their bears in the swing and the bouncy chair. I can't count how many times Andrew or I have gone in our room to go to bed only to find an animal or two in there "sleeping". Here is a cute picture I got of the two of them with their swaddled bears.
