Christmas Is Coming

And my minor Advent miracle today is that the baby is sleeping in a crib. He sleeps quite a bit, actually, just usually only if he is on top of or immediately next to another person. I wasn't even trying to get him to sleep elsewhere today (since I've had such poor luck with that so far) --- I had just put him down in his favorite hanging-out spot while I used the restroom. And then noticed that it was staying oddly quiet. Woo-hoo! Although I am scheduled to meet my mother at the library in half an hour, and she has no cell phone...

I have been getting a fair bit of reading done, since that's one of the few things I can do while nursing and/or being slept on. First I read my book club selection for December, though I wasn't able to make it to the gathering. Then I got caught up with my magazines (although I have realized the New York Times is too cumbersome to attempt one-handed so have reluctantly relinquished my Sunday subscription for the time being). Since then I've had one fiction and one non-fiction book going at all times. Who knows? If I can keep from buying new books I may actually get through a sizable chunk of my unread shelf before I have to go back to work. I'm well aware that once I do return I will get very little reading for, oh, the next couple of years at least.

Of course, if he keeps up with this sleeping in a crib business I won't be reading as much either... maybe I can finally finish his quilt...

Blessings to all on this first day of Winter!
