Pappack





I had to upload these pictures for my aunt - who is referred to by all the second generation cousins as Aunt Nu Nu. While we were up for the Ladies Conference, she gave me a bunch of books for Isabella as well as this little backpack with books in it. I talked to Isabella while mom and I were on the way home and I told her that I was bringing her something from Aunt Nu Nu -- well, as soon as I walked in the door, she said "I open my present?" This child forgets nothing!! Well, she LOVES books and she was even more thrilled about the backpack. Yesterday for most of the afternoon she walked around the house with her backpack on and FULL. There are probably 10 books in their (Dr. Seuss size) and it is kind of heavy, but she refused to let me take the books out. Actually, I thought I had convinced her to let me take the books out, but then as soon as they were out she said "I want that one in my Pappack, and that one, and that one...." until they were all back in the backpack. Thankfully, the other books she gave her were too big to fit in it, or she would have wanted them in there as well. I had to take a couple pictures, because she was just too cute - and she was more than willing to pose for the camera this time and show off her new "pappack". So, she has now been saying since Sunday night "Aunt Nu Nu give me my present, I go see Aunt Nu Nu?, I miss Aunt Nu Nu", and such. :) The only problem -- well, I have to constantly read Horton Hatches the Egg AND my little girl is looking too grown up with a backpack on and I'm seeing the future school years coming way too quick!!

Well, I guess she was all ready to pose for ya! Those are adorable! Tell Isabella that Mikey just got a "pappack" for his birthday so they can be "pappack pals". :o) And you're right, she does look school bound!

So sweet! Sorry, this is going to sound like such a teacherish thing to say, but I think it's wonderful that you're teaching your daughter to love and value books at such a young age. Something as simple as a backpack for her books shows her that books must be important if her aunt and Mommy refer them as something special!

Man she is just soooo cute! We have that same little backpack. In fact, we got it 8 or so years ago when my oldest was just a toddler.
