Isaiah loves reading. Sometimes, sitting still for the whole story can be a challenge, but he still loves to have people sit down with his favorite books. He loves Dr. Seuss books right now because of the rhythms and rhyming.
Sometimes, when my mom sits down to read Isaiah’s bedtime story, he doesn’t want to sit down with her because he’s afraid he’ll fall asleep. When he doesn’t want to come close, my mom will “read” to one of the pets. Isaiah always gets jealous after a few minutes and joins in.
Usually, Isaiah starts out hanging back a little bit or sitting next to my mom while she reads. It seems to be his attempt at staying awake and alert, in spite of extreme fatigue. He knows it’s nearly bedtime, but he’s never quite ready to give up the fight against sleep!
Once Isaiah has settled in to read, he’s pretty engrossed in the story. He seems to especially enjoy the patterns in many of the Dr. Seuss books. His favorite seems to be “Mister Brown can Moo, Can You?” He even tries to mimic some of the sounds that Mr. Brown makes. It’s so fun to watch!
