And I thought I will raise a reader !!!

Bunny is three month old and they say this is the best time to start reading to your baby. Phase when babies start listening, learn to read when time comes, get amused by mouth/lip movements, develop language skills and the likes.

This afternoon Bunny was in play mood, we were the only two souls in the house, I decided to read something to him, hoping to make this a afternoon ritual of sorts. Due to lack of baby books and my general laziness in ordering some, I started reading aloud what I was reading, Haathi’s latest post, modulating my pitch and all like telling a story. He seemed interested and delightful in the start but within few minutes he went into a deep peaceful sleep. This has never happened in Bunny’s three moimagenths history that he has fallen asleep without being in lap, without anybody rocking him, without patting his back. That was so funny, seeing him fast asleep within few minutes of reading, butΒ all my hopes of developing reading skills in him went straight out of the window.

On positive note I got a new harmless and painless way of making him fall asleep πŸ™‚

    Wow thats a good idea, only if Happy (my 1 year old) would sleep so easily! No sir, he has to rocked left and right, then held in the arms and cuddled, then sang to, then rocked again and then.. if I am lucky, the dream fairy comes!!! πŸ˜› πŸ™‚

    The OH is just like Bunny. He goes off to sleep the minute someone reads aloud to him, or if he spends a bit of time reading a few pages of a book himself! I hope Bubboo is different in this respect. πŸ™‚
