Baby G's Library

I just finished Baby G's library... okay... maybe not quite the picture above but it's still a good collection.

A few months ago Juli told me she had some books to pass along to Baby G. On Friday afternoon I made a trip over to her house to gather up the newest treasure. I had no idea what she meant when she told me she had some books. I assumed it would be a box or two of favorites that I would be able to add to my growing collection from friends.

After spending a few hours loading up an entire CRV full of books I was a bit overwhelmed. I made a trek to the Container Store on Saturday to buy some milk crates for organization (we need to set a good example and use the ones without a "property of..." stamp). I had to go back today because I had underestimated the amount of books I actually had. 10 crates later, I think I've got a good handle on them.

Now I'll just need to be sure I have enough building blocks that she doesn't begin to use her books to make forts when she gets to the construction age. If she takes after her mother she might realize how useful heavy books become when you want to be sure a sheet will stay draped between two pieces of furniture. This of course is not quite as destructive as using books to create a large scale domino game.
