J found a blank book I'd made a few years ago, and was very excited when I told her that it was blank so that she could fill it up with her own story. She worked diligently, narrating her story to me, and then copying the words into the book. I like the surprise ending.
|"Yay, we're going to have a new baby."|
|"Yay, the baby came out." and "Yay, the new baby is having a birthday."|
|There are no more words, but the baby continues to grow and have birthdays.|
|We must stack tables on top of tables to make the cake high enough for the baby to reach.|
|Finally, the baby has grown taller than the chimney, |
which says puff, puff, puff, and the Mommy stands nearby.
