3V0293.02 Putting Into (first success of pipe into pocket) (11/11/78)

Peggy sat in my lap this morning. I had just come from the bath. As she played with my pipe, Peggy stumbled on a discovery: not only have I hair on my chin but on my chest as well. She tested the attachment by pulling. Preventing any more of that, I pulled the rob tighter across my chest, bringing a pocket more directly into her arena of action. Peggy, who had been holding the pip by its stem and offering the bowl to mouth (her preference), leaned forward and very directly inserted the pipe, bowl down, into the robe pocket. She immediately drew it out.

Relevance: In the past, I have hidden my pipe in a shirt pocket, from which Peggy quickly discovered how to extract it. But this was the first incident where I;ve seen Peggy show an interest in putting a thing into a container (so different as a pocket) and succeed. She has put blocks in her open box successfully.
