The Main Difference

...between being the first time mom of a 10 month old and a 16 month old is this:

When they're 10 months old, you want to make sure that you enthusiastically read every line of every book-- begging your little one to stop flipping the page before you've had a chance to get it all out.



But once they're 16 months; walking, almost talking, throwing books at you a mile a minute-- you suddenly find yourself taking a page like this:


and turning it into this:

"Yes, Lloyd.  My mama's a llama."  

Next!


"BLUE!"

Next!

...and so on

Of course I love reading to Niall.  But when you can't keep up with those little lightning flipping fingers, you learn to improvise-- and stop worrying about whether your kid will be able to read by the time they're two ;)
