How I babysit

Thought I'd illustrate just how awesome my niece is. We both sit when I babysit.


We can last a pretty good while like that if she's in a good mood. (Which she wasn't for the 48HBC.) We give a whole new meaning to the word 'multitasking' if I do say so myself.


Boo!

There may be something in it for anyone who can guess which book I'm reading. Hint: It'll only be released in late fall. And everyone is buzzing about it. Lenore, shush.

Haha aww.

Katiebabs a.k.a KB said...

Adorable! Starting her young with the books. :D

Shelley/Book Fanatic said...

How adorable! She's going to grow up loving to read!!

BookChic said...

Aw cute!!

Hmm to answer your question, what's popping to mind is Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr. But I'm probably wrong.

Donna said...

You know, maybe if I had exposure to children like this growing up, they wouldn't make me run screaming into the night now.

Amee said...

Aw! You guys are so cute together! :)

Um....Ash? I forget the author, but it's the only one that comes to mind since you recently mentioned it. :P

I'm guessing you're reading the highly anticipated Catching Fire that will be released this fall. If I'm right... well... you're just a tease!

Liviania said...

I'd guess Catching Fire. But this photo wasn't from 48, which is when you read that, right? I dunno.

Wish my cousins or niece behaved like that when I babysat. But I've always been the most physical of their baby-sitters so I get to move constantly when watching them. (However, the first time my littlest cousin was taken to a bookstore she ran around screaming my name.)

Beth F said...

Awwwww. So cute!

Steph said...

Noooot Catching Fire.

Khy said...

Hush, Hush. xD

Also, babeh cute!

Kimberly Derting said...

Beautiful niece! And Beautiful Creatures???

Alea said...

That is adorable!

Fantastic Book Review said...

Cute! Beautiful Creatures?? or Deadly Little Lies??

Miss Cindy said...

Aww, what a cutie patootie :)

Jessica Kennedy said...

She's a total cutie!

I want to guess Shiver but I don't think that's right...trying to see the text of the book!

Aerin said...

Steph, you're disgustingly gorgeous. The baby is so pretty, but, unlike Lisa, I do /not/ miss the drooly days. Nope, nope, nope. My two are preschoolers now, and that is a fine, dandy age.

cupcakewitch said...

So cute! But it looks like she is giving you the evil eye in the 1st picture! "Stop reading that book!"

Diana Dang said...

Oh my gosh, she's so adorable! x))

debbiesworld said...

OMG. Your niece is just too adorable!

pirate penguin said...

How cute! I like how she just sits there all calmly... I wish all children were like that!

deltay said...

Aww, so cute! Absolutely adorable :)

Were you reading PC Cast's TEMPTED? Or Maggie Stiefvater's BALLAD?

Reader Rabbit said...

I'm not going to guess, since I know..

But your niece is adorable!

Chick Lit Teens said...

How adorable! That's my kind of babysitting style!

My guess would have to be CATCHING FIRE.

Iryna said...

Along with Khy, I have a feeling it's Hush, Hush.

You said "shush, Lenore" and if you go to Lenore's blog, she has three books which she said she was excited about . . . one of them which is Hush, Hush. Hush is also another word for hush, and they ryhme too.

Your niece is absolutely adorable!! Words can't even describe how cute she is!

Iryna said...

I mean to say "hush is another words for shush"!! Sorry, my bad!

Iryna said...

And again, I meant to say "meant" not "mean". *sigh* I'm double checking my spelling this time.

Rebecca Herman said...

She's so cute! My sister is having a baby in the fall and I can't wait to be an aunt.

Stephanie said...

So CUTE!!

Ashley said...

That is soo cute! I love that first picture - she's just staring at you.

I hate when babies just stare at you without blinking... kind of freaky.. haha.

Ruth @ Bookish Ruth said...

I'm going to guess Fire by Kristin Cashore, I'm probably wrong, though.

That's an awesome photograph of the two of you! I love babysitting, I get so much quality reading time during naps!

Laina said...

You're brave, I don't baby-sit kids under 2 years old (with good reason). Your neice is adorable, though. ^^
