Baby brain

I know there are countless studies which prove baby brain doesn’t exist but I beg to differ. I tender my last entry as Exhibit One.

Notice anything sad about my rabbit? It has no limbs! I have no idea about how I managed to skip on by that part of the pattern. I was looking through other people’s Ravelry projects last night and it suddenly struck me that my rabbit was missing something. Two somethings. Sigh.

He looks much more complete now.

I’ve been adding to our collection of board books in anticipation of the new baby. I wanted to add to our library in an effort to keep Elena occupied while the new baby feeds. Board books are perfect because I can leave them out for her and not worry that they’re going to be bastardised.

Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ turned up yesterday afternoon and I’m happy to report that it’s a total hit. Such a fun story and, even though it’s quite long, Elena sat happily through the whole story.

I’m keen to keep expanding our library, so would welcome any suggestions for great children’s books – particularly those suitable for an 18 month old who loves a story.

What’s your favourite children’s book?

    “Good Night Gorilla” by Peggy Rathmann was a huge success in our house and lasted for years. There is a little mouse with a banana on each page, each cage comes with a matching key, each animal has a soft toy – my son would sit for hours “reading” it. Another favorite was “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle – you probably have that already.
