I think this was a Christmas present from Nana and Papa(razzi). Anyway, Hueston really likes it. The pages are sturdy, the pictures big, and we read through the whole thing easily. It's always fun to get to "Y is for YOU!" and see our weirdly distorted faces in the mirror.
Tonight was Night One of trying to get Hueston to fall asleep on his own in his crib. So far, we are coming up on an hour, and he seems to be asleep. Hooray! We'll see what the rest of the night holds... Stay tuned...
