So I decided that I would do a book advent this year for Sebastian. He is only 10 months old, so it will help create a bit of a tradition for years to come. Chocolate 🍫- was not an option for him as he is far too young despite us as adults wanting to eat his! Hehe 😂!
I have bought some Christmas books specifically for him but also he has been given a fair few from grandma which were used for his nephews. Some of these books even belonged to his dad ( my husband). I shall also be taking a few trips to the library to see what we can find- this in itself is a bit of a thing Sebby and I do on Monday (which is my day off).
