We started by reading two bear themed books -We're Going on a Bear Hunt (my favorite) and Baby Bear by Ollie Bollie (his favorite!). I read bear hunt as happy as could be as Kingston continuously shoved Baby Bear in my face to be read. We ended up reading it about 10 times .. literally. K just kept pushing it at me until I had read it into the ground. He patted the bears on each page. Obsessed I tell you!
Kingston has started to say bear recently. He says, "Baabaa" and points to the bear! After we read the books, I brought out K's new stuffed bear. I pointed out all of the parts of the bear: snout, ears, fur, paws, etc. I told him that the bear was brown. Then we sang "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear"! I made the bear do all of the movements which made K laugh! Then Kingston took charge and had an all out hug-a-thon with the bear! He is the biggest love in the world. He squeezed, kissed, and tackled Mr. Bear for what seemed like forever.
K loved exploring his favorite animal! He will never be done with his bears though. He dragged the new guy around the house all night after this. Love I tell ya!
