Sometimes just when I start thinking, “Not one more diaper!” Benji does something new or cute that keeps me going. Last night was particularly sleepless and long for us, and waking up at 6:00 am (instead of our usual 6:30 or 7:00) felt exceptionally miserable.

So it’s an especially good thing that Benji started making pffttt noises with his tongue sticking out today, because otherwise I don’t know what would have kept me going today.

On top of that, he’s just started lifting his torso off the ground, clearly a big step (if you will) towards crawling. He’s also started pushing off with his legs more, and the overall forward motion has become much more crawling-like than the earlier swimming-through-air style motion.

This is all lovely, but I’d still love an uninterrupted night of sleep.

Oh: about the library books: I finished the first 900-page volume a few days ago, and am not remotely tempted to keep it, limited edition or not. The waiting and editing qualities were both atrocious, and the story, though entertaining, not worth incurring the wrath of the King County Library System.

  1. I’ll bet you meant “writing” quality rather than “waiting” quality – an extremely well placed editorial slip!
