Reading Routine with Baby Boy Bakery

This post was written by Jacqui Saldana, the wonderful woman and mom behind Baby Boy Bakery

Hanna Andersson - Baby Boy Bakery

I feel like when you embark on the motherhood journey one of the things most people tell you to do is "Read to them always!" Even while within the womb, even when they can't hold their own head up and keep their eyes open for more than 13 minutes ... read to your baby! Honestly, the second you become a mother the advice comes in bucket loads and most can be dismissed. A lot of it is subjective to those who have experienced certain things. Motherhood for me is taking one day at a time and cultivating my own way of doing things. A bunch of trail and error mixed with intuition and support from my own mother and husband. Though, the reading thing. I believe it to be a true necessity. 

I have made it a point to weave in reading and book play into our daily routine. Mila has gone from enjoying the colors, to laughing at my voices, showing interest in turning pages (also ripping pages) and now she mimics reading on her own when she comes across a book. Or even her dad's Men's Health magazine. Her bubbly babble while she mimics reading melts my whole heart! I've taken a bunch of video so I can look back at those sweet moments. I can't wait for the days where she runs up and asks for me to read her a specific book or when we cuddle before bed and read a book together. I remember so vividly Ryan and I squished into his toddler sized bed as we read 'Dragons Love Tacos'. It was the his favorite book at the moment and we have his copy that we read together displayed in our living room. We also have a new copy in Mila's library. It is a special book because it is the last book I ever read to him and well I just adore it. I can still hear Ryan's laugh sometimes when I read it now. 

Right now with Mila being the curious one year old that she is, it is unlikely to sit still for more than one story. We start out with a book while Mila sits in my lap, then she will eventually wiggle away. Which is totally fine. I keep reading and showing her the pages. She looks, touches the book, smiles at me, finds a stuffed animal to play with or a toy. She plays and then comes back to the book and so on. I think so long as I continue to read to her, her love of books will slowly grow. I do want to keep reading fun for her and when I read to her it seems to make her pretty happy. Sometimes while I read she will come and rest her head on my thigh for a moment. She will look up at me and the book and smile. Those tiny moments are everything. 

We read at least two books in the morning when Mila wakes up. I sit in her nursery and that is usually when she will sit the longest and listen to me read. Still laden with sleep she plays with her ear lobe and rests her head against my chest. Once she starts to try and turn pages I know she is starting to wake up fully and in no time she will start to wail for some breakfast. In the evening after Mila's bath Dan and I take turns reading. Sometimes we sit together and read as a family as Mila listens to us, plays a bit and starts to wind down. Or Dan will give her a bath and read so I can take a hot shower/have a moment to myself. We read in the morning and in the evening and it seems to sort of book end our day. No pun intended! Our reading routine somehow sets up for success for the day and also for a good night. Ryan sort of knew that after story time came bed time which resulted in a pretty seamless night time routine. I love reading to my little ones. In some ways I feel like reading bed time stories un-locks a 'mom level', you know it is just one of those sweet mama moments that only a mom or parent can really understand. It is pure joy and the fact that it is so good for your babe makes it all the more enjoyable. I am looking forward to learning what book becomes Mila's true favorite. 

Currently our go-to reads are below, you can click on the titles to learn more and add them to your library if you don't already have them. Each book is under $20 and a few are just $5! Leave your current favorite reads in the comment section too, I'm always looking for fun new books!

"Because we live far away from our families and prefer to stay home for the holidays rather than flying in the  unpredictable winter weather, we don’t have big family dinners or Christmas traditions that involve other family members. So to make it feel extra special, I try to make Christmas morning a big event: hot chocolate, a special breakfast, fun stockings, opening presents, a yummy dinner for just the (now) five of us. While it might not be as big of an event as if we were near our families, we enjoy being relaxed and low-key and having no pressure to go anywhere or do anything (which can be nice too!)."

"From Christmas boat parades to gingerbread house decorating parties…I love every single one.  But one tradition we have been doing ever since my oldest was just a baby is Christmas pajamas.  Every year we give each other new Christmas PJ’s to wear.  Because going to bed in cozy, festive jammies just screams Christmas in my book.  And they are not just for sleeping, we wear them to watch movies, drink coco, see christmas lights and even decorate cookies. Basically we live in them for the month of Christmas..." - Tell Love and Party

"One of my favorite Christmas Traditions is reading the The Night Before Christmas with Harper! My parents used to read it to us and we just loved it. Every year we looked forward to reading it together. I am so happy that I am able to share this sweet tradition with my baby girl. Harper just loves it. We cozy up every night to read and count down the days until Christmas." - Our Vintage Farm House

"Now that we have two children we’ve started thinking more about family Christmas traditions. I didn’t realize how many traditions we had growing up until I got married and learned about the different ways my husband celebrated Christmas." - Heart Of Deborah

"I realized that no matter how early or late one loses a baby, miscarriage is something that needs to be talked about, and I have found much freedom in talking about mine. We've been able to heal and really trust God and see His renewal and grace through it all. Ultimately, His timing and His plan is far better than ours. My mind is already swirling with nesting ideas and all the things related to having a new baby. We are so so excited, and can't wait to meet this new addition this coming summer!" Hello June Bug

"Operation Christmas Child. I’ve mentioned this before- it’s an organization that I absolutely love. Each year we pack a box for a child in need in another part of the world. Just a special way to give and to teach my own kids the importance of giving. It’s what this season is all about!" - Katie Did What

"Every year since before I can remember, my family would do an annual cookie decorating party. We’d listen to holiday tunes, bake and decorate sugar cookies, and sip on hot cocoa. This year, I wanted to do the same with Mark and Austin, wearing our favorite festive Hanna Andersson jammies, of course." - Whiskey and Lace

"As we head into the end of December, we are prepping for our first expat Christmas here in New Zealand! After searching and finally finding a home (I will be sharing some “before” sneak peeks of our space next week), spending the past two weeks attempting to settle in and furnish this house of ours, and preparing for the arrival of our baby in less than a month, Christmas has honestly been the last thing on my mind. That is until I realized that Christmas was basically a week away and we still had yet to buy a tree, put up lights, or buy a single present! After completely missing Halloween, Holden’s favorite holiday, because of traveling at the time, I knew that we couldn’t do the same for Christmas (nor would I want to!). I’ve found a Kiwi Christmas to be quite different from Christmas as we know it from the States and thought I’d share a few differences between an American Christmas and a New Zealand Christmas…" - Bel & Beau

The Little Style File 

There are so many moments that make the holidays. It can be as simple as sitting by the fireplace giggling over a cup of hot cocoa. Or enjoying your favorite decorated sugar cookie by the Christmas tree. Maybe your favorite holiday moment is wearing your Hanna Andersson soft, organic cotton pajamas and snuggling up in bed reading your favorite holiday story.  Or jumping on the bed and laughing until your side hurts..."

"I have a thing for a family in matching holiday jammies. My siblings and I dress our kids each Christmas (and even 4th of July this year!) in matching ‘Hanna Jams,’ because the patterns are always adorable and they’re so durable, plus I love that it’s organic cotton. Easton is still wearing pairs of jammies that both Asher and his cousin have worn from 7 years ago!" - Against All Grain

We hope you loved this round up! The last entry period for a chance to win $500 to Hanna to get your family matching PJ's is 1/6. Post a photo with #hannajams on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and share your family traditions for a chance to win!
