Naturally, I forgot to take any books with us to the hospital (hey I found out at 4 p.m. that I had to be at the hospital by 8 p.m. that night and had nothing packed - I'm lucky I remembered underwear). JD ran to Target the morning after Kendall was born and brought us a couple books and the tradition began.
One of my biggest hopes for my daughter is that she will share her mother's (and grandparents, great-grandparents, etc.) love of reading. So far, she seems to love it.
