Lip Smacking Good Book!

I think I could laugh every single time I watch this clip!

Elaina still loves her books and has recently decided that she would rather read the books to me than listen to me read. I don't know exactly where the throat clearing and the smacking of the fingers to her lips came from, but the first time she did it, I was nearly in tears trying to keep my composure in order not to laugh at her. She sounded like a 2 year-old version of the slow guy from the movie Slingblade. Hysterical!

And the finger licking? I don't have a clue! Even more funny, I know that she doesn't either! She must have seen someone wet their fingers like this at some point and believes it to be essential in book reading. Sometimes she'll go about her finger-licking-throat-clearing routine several times over before she even gets to the first page!

Needless to say, whenever Elaina offers to read Mommy a book, I always oblige. She is great entertainment!

Maybe she's a librarian or book critic in the making! Love that video!
