Porter is very fond of making books. They have been evolving over the past year. But now that he can operate a stapler reliably, he can do almost the whole thing himself. Sometimes he draws the pictures, then tells me the story and has me write in the words. Sometimes he asks me how to spell it and writes it himself. And sometimes he copies words from books that he is familiar with. Like this one I found yesterday. It took me awhile.

Smash it. Of course. He was very proud that I wanted to take a picture of his construction book. Meanwhile, Molly once again uses up all of my tape.

Have a good weekend!


  1. Our kids are up to the same stuff - tape and homemade books. Stuey even staples his books together! It seems we live parallel lives. Our kids have been making 'jam' from frozen strawberries too. If your kids are doing that too it'd be totally bizarre. Patrick

  2. Jessy, I have never seen a picture of Molly that looks more like youdid at that age than this one. It's astounding.

  3. Can Molly breath in that picture?

  4. Can't stop laughing at the book. And Molly and Tessa really are cut from the same mold. Love the pics!
