We're making the most of these warm summer days, from having breakfast on the balcony to spending every free second doing something outdoors. The only time we seem to be inside is during nap time or when it rains.
Tavi has been keeping me on my toes this week, she's curious and can get into just about everything. Our place is baby-proofed; no chemicals or open electrical sockets anywhere, the most she can do is make a lot of messes.
The other day I was clearing the table after dinner and I know the salt and pepper shakers were on the table, away from the edge. Next thing I know I see a trail of salt on the carpet leading to a certain someone, smiling happily while clutching two small ceramic birds, upside down, pepper and salt spilling out everywhere. I have absolutely no idea how she got them off the table, (she needs help to climb on the couch, so it's doubtful she climbed on a chair) but it was a lesson for next time in making sure they are really out of reach.
From finding my keys in the bathtub to searching Tavi's toy box for the tv remote, I've learned you can't set things down for a second or you'll spend hours looking for them!
