Two adorable developments:

  • with his little hands, he clawed/rubbed at the pages. My inference was that he was trying to turn the pages. And when i half turned the pages for him, indeed, he completed the turn. Given a book has something like 20 page turns and he is read to nearly every day, he has gotten a lot of receptive exposure to learn that. Such a pity his muscles/nerves don’t respond to his heart.

  • he started grabbing his feet. And then used his feet to hit the toys (well hitting here is a proxy for trying to hold on to).

On another note, Trump rescinded protections/rights for transgender students to use restrooms. Bannon is on the ascendant. Immigrants are being forced back in droves. Everything about him is ugly, noxious and mendacious. I feel powerless to do anything.
