update: top books for baby

Hi friends! How it is already December?! I hope you’ve having a great holiday season so far!

Before Lucy was born, I shared a blog post with books for baby and all of the adorable books we were gifted or bought for her. Lucy is now 10 months old and we do *a lot* of reading these days! We keep most of her books in her bedroom (with the cutest ones front and center on the shelves😊) but we have a basket of books on the floor in her room, and a few books in her other baskets scattered throughout the house. I wanted to update my baby books list now that I’ve actually read all or most of them! There are sooo many good ones and these books would be great holiday gift ideas for your little babe. 🎄 I’ve copied/pasted the original baby book list, and added a lot of new ones below. The ones that are new additions to my original list are italicized. And most of the books are all linked on my Amazon page for easy shopping, too!
