I read that babies like to choose their own toys from a basket, so I started just setting Kivrin next to the toys — and Kivrin definitely enjoys getting everything out of her toy baskets!  She empties the basket piece by piece, choosing a toy and then setting it down and moving on to something new. Since she is also scooting around now, the kitchen floor is often covered in an assortment of baby toys that she has spread around.


The library’s summer reading tshirts arrived and we couldn’t wait to dress Kivrin in her “Be Creative @ your library” onesie. From past bad experiences with trying to get pictures of Kivrin wearing certain clothes, I believe in taking the photo right away for new outfits, so we posed this picture of Kivrin with her books. (And my instinct paid off — that onesie just came out of the laundry and already seems to have a small stain on the front!)
