After the diapers, carseat, layette and sleeping quarters are set up, the most important thing to have is a great collection of books to help develop language and a love for reading. I’ve been reading to my boys nightly since they were just a few weeks old and honestly, it’s one of my favorite parts of the day and time with them that I truly cherish.
