|Meeka's bed full of books she "read" the night before.|
She has always been interested in books, but she has never been one to sit and let you read. My guess is that this is part her personality, but part her speech delay. She just couldn't engage in talking about the books. However, she has always been interested in books. I find her bed littered in stacks of books every morning. She will sit down and "read" for hours by herself, but she never wants you to read to her. And if by some change she did want you to read, she lasted all of 2 seconds before she stopped listening and started doing something else.
That is until yesterday, when she brought me 2 books first thing in the morning. In the midst of the morning chaos of getting Logan and Melina on the bus by 7am, I sat down with her. I thought I'd be back up in 5 seconds to continue my chores. NOT THE CASE! She sat and listened to both books. And later yesterday afternoon, she brought me 3 books and she sat contently and listed to all 3 of those books! It was truly amazing; just like looking outside and seeing the miracle of a rainbow! I am still reeling that my little girl (who will be 4 on Sunday!) has finally started letting me read to her. What a blessing!
