I used to read to Lily all the time when she was smaller. It was easy, she just laid there and let me read her stories. I actually used to read some of my favorites aloud to her before she was even born while I was up late waiting for Tyson to get home from work. Anyway, around 8 months old she got so squirmy and would not let me read to her anymore. She just wanted to take the book away and flip through it herself. She loves to flip through books.
I replaced one shelf on one of the living room bookshelves with her books. She spends time every day pulling some (if not all) of the books out and flipping through them.
Recently though, she has started picking up a book and walking over to me. She puts her arms up (her way of telling me to pick her up) and shows me the book. I love these moments. She cuddles up on my lap and lets me read her the story. She laughs when I make the funny sounds or I do voices. I love it! It is such a wonderful quiet time, just me and my sweet baby girl. I don't think that I can really convey just how much I love this age.

As of this evening, we officially have a walker. Lily stopped just walking to me, now she is walking from toy to toy and of course chasing after Oscar. She is still wobbly and falls a lot, but she likes to walk and prefers to walk. She will only crawl after she falls.
This is such a fun age, I am loving it! This evening as we were playing I just kept thinking "Can she stay this age forever?" It is so much fun. She loves to play and is very independent which is great because it allows be the time to get my chores done, but she also loves to play and interact with me. We read stories together, build with her blocks, I fly her around, we sing, she laughs, I love it! She really is a great joy and we love her dearly!
And just for fun, a little video of her playing peek-a-boo with me.
