My Bookish Baby

Someone (I believe it was Gaye of Inside a Book) recently accused me of not posting any new pictures of my baby on this here blog.  In my defense, it's a book blog, not a Mommy blog, so I try to keep things mostly book-related.  However, my daughter has grown a lot since I last showed you a photo of her.  She hardly even resembles the cute little toddler I'm holding in the photo on my right sidebar (*sigh*).  Obviously, she's still cute, it's just that she's such a big girl now.  It makes me a little sad to watch her getting so grown up and independent.  Really, where has the time gone?

Luckily for Gaye, my mother-in-law shot some pictures of little Miss J. just a couple of weeks ago.  not only are they dorable, but they're also bookish in nature.  So, here you go:

Isn't she just too cute for words?  That huge grin is always on her face.  It's absolutely infectious and has gotten her out of trouble many, many times.  Someone once said that this little girl's special talent is making people happy and I couldn't agree more.  She brings joy into our lives every single day.  

The pictures are of J. using the Little Free Library my in-laws set up in their front yard.  Have you heard about this small, but ingenious movement?  It's been a fun little project for my in-laws.  Their lush, well-maintained yard has always received lots of attention, but now that it's got this small, take-a-book-leave-a-book library, it's become an even more popular spot!

In other news, I'm now only 8 reviews behind.  Maybe I will finish writing them sometime in this lifetime!  One can always hope ...


  1. Susan, she is such a doll. Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. What a smile! I love the idea of the free library in the yard. How unique. Is it well used, I hope?

  2. Ah, she's so cute - I'd probably be a sucker for that smile too :) So cool your in-laws have that Free Little Library! And I'm happy to report I only have 7 books to review on my pile, but only becasue I posted 5 all at once today.

  3. Aw, she's so cute! I'm with Melissa, that little library is such a cute idea!

  4. CUTE! And I've never heard of the little library. Fun stuff!

  5. I want 'em both; that cutie of yours to hug and squeeze those cheeks and that totally cool Free Little Library!! Thanks for sharing. She HAS gotten so big. Time flies!!

  6. What great photos of her, AND what a cool little idea for a library!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
