One of the first things I started buying for the baby were books. Joe and I really enjoyed reading as children and it would be nice if we could pass on this trait. Among the first group I brought home was Sandol Stoddard Warburg's I Like You. It's hard not to feel all warm and fuzzy when flipping through the pages of this book. I hope our baby loves it as much as I do, and I also hope to read it to him/her many, many times over. Maybe I'll start tonight... since it is Valentine's Day and all.

I like you because I don't know why but
Everything that happens
Is nicer with you I can't remember when I didn't like you
It must have been lonesome then

  1. ahhh! love this. i've been secretly thinking about how i'm going to collect vintage books for my future bebe.

  2. when i was 18 i worked at borders. i was cleaning up the kids section one evening and this was sitting out. i sat down and read the whole thing and was floored.

    i immediately bought 3 copies; one for my best friend, one for my future husband, and one for myself.

    years later i ended up giving the one for my future husband to a boyfriend. which i dont regret. we didnt marry but he is still one of my best friends.


    BEST. BOOK. EVER. i guess the baby can have my copy. ;)

  3. Oh, beautiful. I think I'll have to get this one ASAP!

  4. Aw, I love this one. I gave it to my husband after a few months of dating, hehe :)
