With the park out of the picture for the next few weeks due to my advanced "condition", Addison has contented himself with massive doses of reading. When we first arrived in Aberdeen, it was all we could do to get him to sit through 3 or 4 pages of a book, but then magically one day it all changed and we read 9 books in one sitting. For Christmas he received a lot of books -- thank goodness! -- but just a few short weeks later, having read such volumes as Curious George and McDuff and the Baby umpteen number of times, I'm glad his birthday is just around the corner. We need more books or Mommy is going to join the 45 hippos in Sandra Boynton's Hippos Go Berzerk. This morning while reading to Addison a childhood favorite of Trey's, Daddy took a few pictures. His expressions are priceless. It's amazing to imagine what goes on in his little mind while you read to him, and it brings back such fond memories of my parents reading to me. It is not uncommon for the first words out of Addison's mouth when I get him up in the morning to be, "Duff? George?" Yes, that's right. He's on a first-name basis with these literary celebrities.
