The Art of "In"

For quite a while now, Gavin has been a zealous supporter and implementer of the Second Law of Thermodynamics. If I organize the diaper bag or put the board books back on the shelf, within minutes the diaper bag contents or books are strewn about the floor. Of course, if I just leave the books on the floor in front of the bookshelf, they generally stay in their place (at least equilibrium is not books scattered all over every room of the house - yet). However, just yesterday Gavin began to learn the art of putting things IN in addition to pulling things OUT. We put plastic shape toys into the box and then took them out again, and he seemed to like it. Only trouble is I also saw him trying to put a diaper into the heater vent yesterday (we have an old house so our heater vents are in the wall at floor level and have wide enough slits to let all kinds of things through). Oh well, at least he can help put his toys in the toy basket, right?
