7+8/52: A Portrait Project

An attempt to capture the spirit of my smallest baby Georgette, by documenting her in a photo every week for a year. See more at Jodie's 52 Project.  

This instalment covers at LEAST 2 weeks worth of portrait George. I couldn't narrow your love of books down to one photo, because every day, you want to read and read and read. 

You read with Nanna. 
 You hang out and read in your room. 

You read while you eat. 

You make Teddy read you the books he knows.  Basically, you climb up on the rocking chair and just yell until a big person joins you with a book. It's an effective strategy. 

You can always squirrel a few out of Ivy. When a book is nearing the end, you climb down and run and grab a new one before the last is over. You're no sucker. 

If everybody is occupied, you read alone. In fact your book piles are getting bigger by the day. 

You read with Dad, and, of course, you read with me. Many, many times a day. I love that you are such a reader George. 
I have been a book-lover all my life, and books have brought me immense joy. In the the blink of an eye George, you will be six, like your  big sister, and going off to bed to read your Indiana Jones book, wearing a baby's bathrobe and comfortably ensconced in a nest you decorated yourself, with your torch tucked away so you can read 'just a bit' longer after Mum turns the lights off.

Happy times.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post


Thanks for talking to me. I don't got cooties. Oh, except for when I got cooties.
