reading a story book for my baby

I started reading a story book for my precious son since he was 3 months old, he enjoyed and loves it very much, i know at that age, babies doesn't understand it yet but the sound of your soft voice is soothing to them, its an important stimulation too, when you read a book, they will see the illustrations, they will be familiar with the shapes, numbers, colors and letters. He will learn to listen, memorize, and helping his vocabulary too, i know he's too young to learn how to talk yet but early as possible is the better, reading aloud will stimulate their hearing. According to the author of site that i stumbled upon, it says there that hearing words helps to build a rich network of words in a baby's brain. When you start early, babies will talk early too and loves book and will carry it until they grow old.

But i stopped reading him a book when he was 5 months old, well, my fault, i was so busy trying to lose weight and i took the time in exercising. Now, i realized, i shouldn't do that. I tried to rread him again started last week, i admit, it was frustrating, it seems he is not interested anymore, i regret what i did, well, its not too late, he's still a baby and lots of room for learning, well, i'm trying even though, now when i tried to read him a book, he will turn his head away, but i know, for him its new again, pretty soon, just few days more, he will love books again for sure.. :)
