At least once a day I catch Pip reading. She loves to curl up in one of the chairs in our living room and "read" to herself, to the pups, or to one of her babies. I wish you could be here to see her read. She points to the pictures, she uses inflection, and while I have no idea what her babbles mean, she is reading with purpose and she expects her audience to pay attention. Simon and Sophie have gotten quite the earful when they dared to leave story time before Miss Pip was finished reading. I know I have said this before, but I am so loving this stage of life. She has so much personality and spunk! P.S. She dressed herself today. Girlfriend loves stripes and patterns.
