I still read to Aiden 2-3 short books before each nap. DH reads one longer book to him before bed. Aiden has started bringing me books while playing for me to read. At some point each day I catch him on his back using his feet to hold the book as he turns pages with his hands!
His current favorites are I Love You Stinky Face, I Love You Through and Through, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose.
I am a horrible mom; I haven't really read to Sophie... If I'm reading a bedtime story to DD1, Sophie will be in the room w us... but she's normally more interested in what she can jam in her mouth than what I'm reading. I've tried to read books to her, but she gets all crazy and starts squealing (in a good way) and chucks the book across the room and laughs... or she'll start flipping the pages back n forth, back n forth... not caring what I'm reading...
Oh, we have some of those moments - especially during play time! Before sleep is one of the few times Aiden is calm enough for me to make it through a book. My next door neighbor told me that the only time she can read to her son (he's 11 months) is as soon as he wakes up from his nap. If she waits, he'll try to destroy! lol.
I need to get some better books. I have Disney books like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and those are waaaaay too long to try to read to Lyla. And there are too many words on a page, she starts squirming away and crawling off or she tries to destroy the book. Needless to say, reading is very infrequent.
Almost everytime i go to target i raid the dollar spot for books. They are usually winnie the pooh or sesame street themed. We also have some disney ones that are longer and more advanced. We have a night time prayer book. We have ill love u forever... some dr suess ones although he doesnt seem to like those. We try to read twice a day sometimes its only once.
