Baby Bookworm

Dear Princess,
Since you were two and half months old, your favorite toy by far has been your set of Sassy Baby Books. I love how your eyes light up when I pull out these books, and you reach for them with outstretched arms and eager hands that clearly say, "Give me!" 
The colorful pictures have kept you entertained for extended periods during Church, as you carefully study the pages. Sometimes, though, you do fuss a bit at your books because you can't quite turn the pages yet! One time, you managed to remedy this page-turning problem yourself by holding the book vertically and turning the pages down (rather than side-to-side). Quite a clever trick, though you haven't remembered it since!
The book with the black and white handle is the best because of the strong pattern contrast and ease of handling.  I assumed it was your favorite, but last Saturday over supper, Daddy held up two of your books and asked you which one you wanted. You looked at each one, and then reached for the fabric "sensations" book that Daddy was holding a little bit further away from you. 
Dear little baby, I hope this is just the start of a lifetime of book-reading for you!
