just the two of us

We miss the boy. That break went fast! I'm sure he probably only had a few good days left in him before he got all cranky but Phoebe and I miss having him around all day. We're keeping ourselves busy with stickerbooks and play doh. I'm obsessed with these Usbourne Sticker Dolly Dressing Books books. Phoebe got Ballerinas for Christmas and we tore through it.  Fashion Long Ago is on its way and I'm really wishing I'd ordered more. The Winters are long here in Chicago. We need lots of stickers!

I thought of something I could blog while the camera is undergoing treatment – book reviews! I get review copies of books all the time and am awful about posting them. I've gathered up my favorites and will start on them tomorrow.

    We love the Usbourne books as well. I got my daughter the book on how to draw fairies and mermaids. My daughter loves it and so do I.

    That’s really adorable. I never was that into sticker books growing up, but I have always loved coloring books. It’s bad enough that I want to go and find my coloring books and break out some pencils.

    I would be embarassed to admit how many of the Usborne Sticker Dolly Dressing Books we own. My five year old especially loves them, but the seven year old plays with them too. The Fashion Long Ago is awesome. There is an area, I think at the beginning or maybe around the stickers, that tells what order the clothes are supposed to go on, and which people they are for. I didn’t realize this until my kid put them on the correct pages but the wrong combos.

    We love sticker books too. And my daughter Mila (June 2007 baby too) got exactly the same book for Christmas from Kristkind. Unfortunately ours have been a bomb. Stickers are not staying stuck to the pages. :( Must be something about maybe the storage of the book that made the glue dry out maybe?!
