Research Assistant

I am working on the paper for the class I just finished.  I want to get this done as quickly as possible, so I'm looking for any seams in the day to go to the library.  I decided to take Noah out last night.  Besides, I had to go to the grocery store.  Sadly, Lily was interested in neither.

Noah is not quite ready for the library.  Fortunately there was no one else there when we were there.  He did a lot of running around, which was just fine.  He also did some taking books off of the shelves, which was not fine. I had to make some copies from some reference commentaries.  Noah loved pushing the green button and "collating" the copies.

One of the books I copied just barely fit on the glass.  If I wasn't careful it cut off the edge of the text on one page.  I examined each sheet to make sure I had what I needed and tried to slow Noah down by saying, "I need to check this first."  Later, as he pulled copies off he would say, "I need to check this" and would give it a visual once-over.  It was very cute.
