It’s really cool that Gus can tell us what he wants now, but basically we could throw out all the other signs except ‘book’ and would still have crystal clear communication.

He has a handful of the cardboard ones available at all times but what he really wants are the paper ones we keep in the back beyond the barrier (which he can now scale, quickly and quietly on his steadfast mission). To be fair, he’s really gentle with the pages when he reads them alone, and the real danger is when he just gets too excited and accidentally folds them.


But he also loves it when we read to him and I keep thinking lately now nice it is that he’s the perfect size for a snuggle in the lap.
