Her Obsession

Katelyn ( and probably all toddlers ) has a fascination with the dishwasher. When she started crawling and could pull herself up she would stand at the open dishwasher while I loaded it. Banging on the open door made her happy. Once she started walking she would pry her little fingers into the side of the door and open it on her own. Plates and silverware would go flying out. So then I had to start locking the dishwasher all the time.

Little Miss Katelyn, however, seems to hear to dishwasher open from miles away. No matter where she is in the house she she comes running the minute I try to load or unload the dishes. So it is a wrestling match between us as I try to pull her away and she screams.

But now life is so much better! Katelyn has now figured out how to reach up and unlock the dishwasher all by herself! Oh joy! Now it is a 5,6, or 7 times a day occurrence that she is throwing dishes all over the place. What fun we are having!

This is a picture of her from last May when she was about 9 months old. What a little devil!!

So sweet! I have a picture almost identical to that with my little girl at about the same age. We even have the same white cabinets as you! It is definitely "fun" when they are able to get into EVERYTHING!
