As most of you know already, my husband and I are expecting our first little on this coming December! While that's made this little blog take a back seat at times this year because morning sickness sucks and growing a human is hard, I can't help but get excited to start building our baby's library. Isn't that what every good book blogger dreams of? I know this post is a little different than what I normally post here, but as I transition into motherhood later this year, I want to make sure that is a part of this blog - and that my love of books will be passed down in its entirety.
We've already bought a few books, and we have a couple classics from family, but here are the top four that are on little baby Moore's bookshelf. Now we just impatiently await this little peanut's arrival!
Who Flung Dung by Ben Redlich - Would you believe this treasure is from South Africa? My parents recently went back to visit our family and brought this silly story back, and you'd better believe I can't wait to read this to our nugget.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle - This is one of the very first books I read as a child, and both the illustrations and the story of transformation were magical to me both then and now. We're thrilled to read this wonderful book to little Moore.
On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman - Something about this book just screams love. This is the type of book that Ryan and I can read to the nugget and remind him/her that they are so very important in our lives.
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein - I'm not the biggest fan of Mr. Silverstein, but this is one book that's been on my shelf since I was really, really young. Full of morals, love and soulful giving, I hope we have such a sweet, tender child.
What sort of books would you add to this list? I have to say that my nesting is in full swing, and the library for this baby is top on my list of priorities right now!
