It’s been a while since we posted a list of Suzianne’s favorite things. Here’s a grouping of her go-to books, foods and toys over the past few months:
Books. The good old fashioned board kind. Since she could sit up on her own, she’s had a thing for pulling every book off the shelf and wading in a pool of cardboard. These are her favorites. Note: if you buy these, you’ll be reading them over and over again. Unless you hide them under the ottoman like we do. So, don’t blame me–you’ve been warned.

- Goodnight Gorilla, by Peggy Rathmann
- Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown
- Princess Baby On The Go, by Karen Katz
- All of these books by Leslie Patricelli, but especially Tubby and Potty.

So, daddy picked off all the strings for her, naturally.
When my foodie turns fickle, I always giggle/cry and think about this hilarious/true/depressing Honest Toddler post. As a friend of mine commented on Facebook last week, it’s amazing how universal this behavior is. Continue reading
