Guess how much I love you

Just a v quick picture post as this was just too cute at bedtime tonight!

At bedtime, the boys usually snuggle up in the spare bed in Alex’s room whilst I give Sophie her final feed in her room.  They read stories  together (often several times in one sitting).  Tonight, when I joined them, I found them reading “Guess how much I love you” – apparently a real children’s classic, but one which I only came across when we received it as a gift.  I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures as they acted out the story together.

“I love you this much” – stretching out their arms as wide as they can go:

“I love you as high as I can reach”:

I love reading with Alex – he’s quite particular about what we read every evening, making very careful (and time consuming) selections.  His current favourites are:

  • We’re going on a bear hunt
  • The Highway Rat (and most other Julia Donaldson books)
  • Hairy MacLary
  • The Hungry Caterpillar (mostly so he can look at all the yummy food and tell me how much he likes chocolate cake and ice cream)
  • Lark in the Ark
  • The Lamb who came to Dinner
  • Aliens in underpants / Dinosaurs in underpants (!)
  • Commotion in the Ocean and Rumble in the Jungle

He’s getting on really well with learning his letters – he can sing the whole alphabet now and recognise “A, L, E, X and S”. in writing  Few more to go!
