I can haz books?


Yes, the little guy is in full pull-books-off-the-shelves mode, and I’m at a loss as to what to do! I’d cleared the bottom shelf, but now he can reach the next one (and not just on this bookcase). This seems like an unsustainable precedent.

Side note: I haven’t reviewed any of those books, although I’ve read them, so if you’ve been pining to hear me talk about something in particular? Ask, and I’ll see what I can do. 🙂

  1. Oh, no! When I found out I was unexpectedly having my third child, THIS is one of the things I most dreaded going thru again!

  2. So cute! I think he’s trying to help you!

  3. I remember that stage well! We put board books on the low shelves and let them have at it. Ben, especially, loved to sit on the floor surrounded by all his board books and turn the pages, pointing to words and pictures and babbling nonsense words.

  4. Uh-oh, hopefully he’ll grow out of this before he grows into the third shelf up! LOL! 😉

    aw he’s getting so big!

  6. I remember that phase!! Books, CDs, food storage containers, pots and pans, clothes in the changing table; anything that could be pulled down was. It was an adjustment for me; we have a lot of CDs, and I kept them in alpha order before the babies – and since they’re not babies anymore – but during the phase, I had to deal with the fact that “off the floor” was good enough.
    I say let go and run with it. Take lots of pictures (and video!); it may frustrate you now, but you’ll remember this fondly when he’s 15 and asking for a ride to the mall (ask me how I know…)

  7. Of course he can haz books! Cute for me but maybe not for mommy having to pick them up 🙂

  8. We didn’t come up with any better solution and just kept clearing shelves until he got bored of trying and old enough to be into other things. Same with CDs. And with kitchen stuff. Used to drive me mental!!

  9. Too cute. Gage still does this at 2 although he is more selective with what he pulls off so there’s not as much to clean up. He seems to pull the same books consistently. He must really want me to read them!

  10. Adore. Luckily Elle doesn’t do this anymore–at least not to my books. ALL of her books are on the floor in her bedroom all the time so I don’t think she’s tempted to pull mine off. Have fun putting them back! 😉

What do you think? I'd love to know.
