A couple of book lovers

I don't think it probably surprises anyone that I've thought a lot about whether the girls will love books. As much as I read, I think it would be fair to call it an obsession. And although Chris doesn't read as much as I do, I do like that he's a reader. Honestly, when I hear that most Americans don't read a single book in a year...it astonishes me. I really can't imagine that. So I really want the girls to like reading. For a long time, trying to read to them was really discouraging, because they didn't want to sit still at all. They'd squirm and cry and grab for the books when I would try to read them. Lately, though, I've been seeing a change.

Here's Saoirse:

And Rowan? Well...she loves books too. You might say she devours them.

Nice to know they are carrying on the tradition of women reading in our family. We only have a million pictures of you and I both doing that.
