My Little Book Worm

As part of my New Year's Resolution this year, I am FINALLY learning how to use my Nikon D3300. I have had this camera for 2 years and have yet to take the time to learn how to shoot in manual mode. This camera takes good pictures in auto, but with this cute little boy in my life, I just can't settle for good pictures anymore...I need GREAT ones :) 

In addition to learning how to use my camera, I really want to make sure to capture some of my favorite moments. Time goes way too fast, and while I can't pause time and freeze these moments, I sure can take a million pictures that I can look back on forever <3

One of those moments was a few weeks ago, on a day off from work. I had a whole day home with my sweet little boy and he was FINALLY healthy, happy, and enjoyable :) Christmas break and the weekend prior had been filled with a sick, clingy, non-sleeping this day was MUCH needed for all involved.

Ever since he was about 6 months old, Bennett has LOVED books. He loves holding them, flipping the pages, and being read to. He especially likes the books with animals and when we make animal noises :)

In his room we have a book shelf hanging on the wall next to his crib, and when he wakes up in the morning or after naps he always reaches for his books. Most days we are in a hurry, and don't have time to stop and read...but on the weekend and days off like this one, we always take the time to snuggle up and read a few books. This is something that fills my heart with SO much happiness and I know it's a memory I will want to hold onto forever.

I tried to narrow it down to just a few of my favorite pictures...but they are all my favorite, I can't help it! Seeing him read a book just melts my heart <3

He even points at the different pictures on each's seriously the cutest!

I just love watching him flip the pages and look at each page of his book.

He read through all the books within reach, and decided he just wasn't quite finished yet!

Reading books is serious business for this guy...

It's always important to get comfy when reading ;) 

Making sure he got ALL of his books out of the crate!

He especially loves the books with the flaps he can lift up and see what is underneath!

He was so into his books, he forgot mommy was even in the room!

Intense concentration!

Sorry for the picture over-load...but I just can't get enough of this little book-worm!
