Picky, Picky, Picky

I think I have mentioned before that Elliot has very discriminating tastes when it comes to books. The truth is, he's downright picky. I have to be honest, though--I find the whole thing pretty amusing. And what I find especially humorous is that his preferences seem to be tied to authors rather than specific titles. For instance: he'll read pretty much anything by Sandra Boyton, Doreen Cronin, and Mo Willems, but practically has a fit when we pull out something by, say, Dr. Suess or Mercer Mayer.

Now I know you're thinking, "yeah, right" and rolling your eyes (or at least I would be)--which is why we've attached the video to prove it.


Silly kid, eh?

Oh, that is hilarious. What a discriminating young reader you have. And I love the thumb sucking. My youngest brother was a thumb sucker and he was the BEST baby, and still a pretty great kid (13 now). Also, I don't think his orthodontia is costing anymore than it did the rest of us non thumb-suckers, so enjoy!

I can't believe that. What a little smarty pants he is!

How great! I love how kids learn so fast what they like and dislike.

I remember one time I was talking to Landon, and a friend said, "It's almost like he understands you." I thought, "Not only does he understand me, we're communicating!"
