The graphic design repelled me but the documentation of the first few months of my life was undeniably compelling.

Mum dutifully filled in the first five or six pages. Noting my first smile, my first laugh and…

I wonder when natal culture dropped the “creep” phase?

… when I started to creep. After that, nothing else is filled in. Who can blame her with a little baby creeping around?? No doubt I kept her too busy to be filling in this stupid book.
