Who needs soft furnishings?

Babess has taken to carrying around a small pile of books recently.  I was wondering why she wanted five books at once, until I saw what she did with them.  She walked into the kitchen.  She sifted through the books to find the one she wanted to read and pulled that one out.  Then she put the other four books in a tidy stack on the floor, and sat on them.  Just the right height to make a handy stool!

She also sleeps on books.  We will go in to check her before we go to bed, and find her sound asleep with her head on at least three books, often with the corner of one digging into her cheek.  Luckily, she doesn’t wake up when we gently lift them out from under her.  I get a weird sense of flash-forward – will she sleep over her books like this when she’s at university?

    Our little guy cut his first tooth on Mon! Seems like yesterday that Babess was 6 months…
