What a packed month we have had!!
We went to Raleigh over Price’s birthday weekend. At that point I realized that flying with a 6 month old is very different than a 10 month old. Oy!!
And in that time Autumn’s crawling speed has increased 10 fold. We really have to make sure all the baby gates are securely closed as she is really quick at going from one end of the room to another. Plus she has been quite proud in showing that she can easily make her way up the first 3 steps with little effort. Oh boy, we are in trouble!!!
The only thing that slowed her down a bit was a recent cold and her first ear infection. Awww poor babe. As usual, she starts out stuffy and then one day her nose is a completely faucet and then she is on the rebound. But this cold also brought along with it the added ear infection so that was extra stinky for Autumn.
Anyway, here is a little round up of things that have been favorites of ours this past month!
Baby Favorites @ 10 months
Silly Hats Barney
While Autumn LOVES her Owl, she is pretty smitten with her singing and dancing Barney toy too. I picked this up at a consignment sale for $5 and, considering how much we have used it, the toy has been a great deal. Every day we take it off the bookcase (so the dog can’t eat it!) and she immediately starts to wiggle. She is ready to dance and clap along with Barney as he sings his songs related to the portion of the hats (farmer, firefighter, bus driver) he has rotated to face forward.
We give Autumn a bath just about every night but what that really means is that I get to say ‘tushy down!!!!!’ about 100 times in 10-15 minutes. Since discovering that she can easily pull herself up from the sides of the tub, she finds it pretty fun to do just that. So I have a heartattack just about every time she does it as there have been a few times when she has slipped and thankfully? gone back (instead of smacking her pretty little face on the edge of the tub). I yank her up again and she blinks back the water that was just all over her back and looks at me like ‘chill, won’t you?’ So, the new solution is lot of toys to keep her entertained in the tub so she doesn’t feel the need to stand up. But where do you keep all those toys?? In this bad boy!! It’s great as it allows you to scoop the toys up and keep them out of the way by hooking on the wall. Awesome!!
It was easier when Autumn was younger to take her temperature in her armpit or rectally but now it’s much harder as she resists staying still, so this thermometer has been so helpful as it only takes a swipe across her forehead and then done! I highly suggest this to all parents to have in their first aid supplies.

Okay, sometimes she still tries to eat them but at least it’s fun to sit with her and doodle with her while she wings them about. It’s just nice to sit without noise and draw with her. She does fast sharp lines and swooshes and then I elaborate them with more doodles, stars, and flowers & leaves. I just look forward to when she really gets into doodling.
