“gideon, put your book down….”

i’ve noticed i’ve started prefacing a lot of sentences that way.  he has a half hour of reading time in the morning and when it’s over i have to tackle him.  “that’s what bookmarks are for son!”  he’s funny to listen to because he skips periods.  his little mouth just goes and goes.  he does the same thing at mexican restaurants.

anyways, i love this picture.  jael and jehu were in bed and i left gideon sitting on the couch with the baby.  when i came back he had carried her in here and sat her in what he must have thought was a comfortable position.  she probably started fussing because when i checked back he had moved her like this:

i’m not sure he stopped reading the whole time.  he really loved this little book.  right now he is reading “buffalo bill” and “captains courageous.”  alternating.  just like his mommy does.
