Starting Baby's Library

I'm sure all of you who have children and hope to have children have that "list" in your mind of what you want to do or how you want to be as a parent.  Having my major being child development my list was pretty long! But, for some reason... with the deployment and having our first baby here in Idaho living at my parents house I hadn't given those things I wanted for my child and wanted to be as a mother much thought lately! (Sounds so silly I know but the circumstances just allowed those things to kind of slip out of my mind!) One thing on my list was to have books for my children! I LOVE books. I want to read to them daily and foster in them a love of literature and language.  I have wanted to start collecting my favorites for years, before I even met Danny but, when you're struggling to buy  groceries you're seldom going to go hunt down that favorite childhood books! Plus i'm a book snob and wanted them in hardback. :P Last week I started searching for my favorites on amazon and purchases a few of them used. I just thought i'd share my favorites with you all as I receive them.  If you have ones you consider "must haves" add a comment! I'd love to hear! I've kind of been considering making my baby shower a book for baby shower... I just thought that would be so awesome to see what everyone chose... and then my children could use them forever instead of growing out of an outfit in a week! Anyway, still thinking about it, let me know what you think :)
