There are so many things about Jacob at 15 months that I never ever want to forget. The way he gets down to Wiz Khalifa’s song “Black and Yellow.” His inexplicable obsession with taking the potholders out of the kitchen drawer. His laugh that’s really more of a bark/scream and yet is utterly wonderful. How he hugs all his little friends when he sees them.
Of all the things I want to remember, Jacob’s love of reading is easily in the top ten. Sometimes I will find him in his room, by himself, turning the pages and exclaiming at his favorite pictures. Other times, he will bring a book to his dad and then run to snuggle up in his lap, ready to hear his favorite stories. People, I am so lucky to be this kid’s mom.
