Our family loves books. Books have been a feature in our kids’ daily lives and routines since they were born.

Our boys are like two peas in a pod to look at. The moment our youngest was born, both my husband and I commented on how much he looked like his brother – they could be twins, just born five years apart.
Looking at baby photos of both of them, I struggle to tell them apart. Continue reading
“You have two boys? That’s a shame”
