Shiloh is back to cheating with her dice. She loves to turn the dice in her hands and inspect the pictures to decide which side she wants to land facing up. Then she sets it on the floor.

Since these lightweight cubes need a good toss in the air to do some flipping, Shiloh was thrilled to throw her dice up and watch them fall when she wasn’t cheating…

She can’t read yet, so the pictures were very helpful for her. She loved to point at each picture while she played.
