The Reading Chair

Here is a sight for sore eyes...a SUPER HAPPY little Biscuit bookworm!! ;) He has had a rough go of it since last September and we've had to back off on our weekly library trips (much to his disappointment); now he has another sore throat and runny nose he woke up with today...BUT on the bright side, he is NOT itchy or rashy with eczema even the slightest bit anymore, PTL!! His skin has never looked so good and he hasn't been this cheerful (cold and all) in months! His attention span for playtime and enthusiasm for stories and picture books has been awesome the past couple days (ever since eliminating peanut contamination of his snack crackers, which we know now he's very allergic to based on skin testing, and baker's yeast, just in case).

As an indication of how well he is doing, today I found him in his room reading in his little "reading chair" all by himself, out loud! :D He was reciting "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" and then a fun board book about Christmas.

He really enjoys his soft toddler-size reading chair with a book basket beside it ;) It does double duty for lots of entertaining diversions such as:

Story time (obviously)Giggle time!Song or music time ("eyes, and ears and mouth and nose!") -- definitely preferable to nose-picking time (*groan*)Even nap time :D
