Brady has been being a little booger lately, so this morning he ended up having a time out in his crib. I was in his room cleaning up and unpacking toys to keep him company. He say that I was putting away books and he reached for them (his way of asking for them) so I let him have a couple. I watched him to see what he would do. He took each individual book, opened it up, said "ba ba ba ba ba ba ba", and tossed it to the side to pick up another book and begin again. As soon as he "read" each book once he wanted more. I thought this was so sweet, especially since I haven't been able to find anything to keep him occupied or happy for the last few days. He may not talk yet, but at least he is making the effort!
