I might have cried when he gave it to me, my very first ever birthday present from my son:
The book I Love You Through And Through by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak.
After those first months of doubt, those hysterical crying in the car seat days, those up every 2 and a half hours nights, those I can’t even go to the bathroom by myself moments, this book was my go-to activity.
I would sit in his room and read it to him, but also read it to myself as a reminder.
“I love your happy side,
your sad side,
your silly side,
your mad side.”
And I do. I love him through and through. In the laughing and the crying times. I love this book for its ability to articulate that to OBaby and remind me of it all at the same time. The illustrations are adorable and laughable (in the good way) and it is just one of those warm fuzzy reads.
This is by far the most special book on our shelves.
Guess what! Now it’s your turn! I cannot wait to hear about the books you love. Go ahead and add a link below to your blog post about books, I only ask that you link back to O My Family somewhere in the post. That’s it! Have fun!
