What I Read: September

One of my favorite parts of motherhood is seeing what interests each of my kids develop. And I’m so thankful that they both seem to be falling in love with reading! Zeke especially would read (be read to) for hours, carries around books instead of lovies/stuffed animals, and demands them to be in his crib when he takes a nap and goes to bed. 

And then there’s Knox, who has a lot of the books we read in bed memorized…it’s crazy impressive!

What I Read: May & June

Friends. The past few weeks have been a DOOZY. My kids had hand foot and mouth, and it laid us out for a good week and a half.

This past month I traveling throughout India, Australia, Paris, and my own front yard. It was a fabulous month of reading, and I hope some of you will choose to adventure through these books too!

Oh goodness I loved Book It. Reading books for free pizza? Sign me up. (Is there an adult version of this??) I’ve always been a big reader, and as I’ve gotten older and entered the blogging world, some of my favorite blog posts to read are book reviews. Even though I have a 42 million unread books on my book shelf, I’m such a sucker for a good book recommendation. 

Being a mom has definitely put a damper on the amount of books I read per month, but I found that if I make it a priority, (less TV, being more productive during the day so I can relax and read after my kids’ bedtime) I can actually read a good amount!
