Claire sat up by herself last night! She has been able to remain sitting when propped for a while now, but this was the first time she got herself from prone to sitting. She is more-or-less crawling, too -- her belly is still on the ground, but she has the basic motions down. I'm sure it won't be long before Katherine has it down too, as she is usually a week or so behind Claire.
While lowering their crib mattresses, I somehow managed to drop the mattress in such a way that it hit the front of my knee. Yes, I mean the bad knee. The knee hyperextended, and I felt something go "pop", and it gave way. It hurt like hell, and two hours later, there is swelling, and I can't bear full weight on it. If I'm lucky, it's just a sprain or a strain. If I'm not, well, that pop was my bad ACL giving up the ghost.
I tell you, I am starting to feel positively persecuted by the fates.
Poopy diaper changes were so much easier before the babies learned to roll over and wiggle. I leave it to your imagination why this is in the "ugly" category.
