Scarlett's Favorite Things - 10 Months

This post is about two weeks late :/ We've been so busy lately and last month we were sick, now Scarlett's sick. Something definitely going around and probably has something to do with this weird weather...please no more earthquakes :( 

This post isn't as fun as the 8 month favorite things. We really haven't bought her any new toys lately just because we know she's going to get tons for her first birthday and we have a teeny house...but here it is!

1. Brown Bear, Brown Bear. She is loving books. It's a good thing because her bookshelf is full of them! Paper page books on the top where she can't reach and board books on the bottom for her to go to town on. This one is one of her favorites. She loves turning the page to the sheep and she says "baaaa!" or the duck page and says "quack! quack! quack!" She's trying to figure out the others...most of them end up being "baaa's" :)

2. Playskool Poppin' Park Elefun Busy Ball Popper. Let me clarify on this toy. She doesn't mind when the toy is turned off. Once it's turned on she freaks out. Hates it. She LOVES the balls it came with. Carries them around wherever she goes. Crawls around with one ball in her hand. And she loves saying "ball!"

3. Mini Board Books. We picked a few of these up when we were in Portland at Powell's books (wow that store is amazing, especially the kids section...wish I lived closer!) These are just her size and she loves turning the pages over and over. Such a life saver when she's in her car seat and it's just her and I. They entertain her for a good half hour.

4. Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets. Haha, no we def don't swaddle her anymore. I was really hesitant on getting these blankets before she was born just because they are so expensive. I think you can actually get them at Babies R Us and Target now for cheaper. I did actually find them at a Toys R Us for half happy I picked them up. She loves to hand it to me and I put it on my shoulder and she snuggles on it. I guess they're considered her lovies? We use them to cover her when she sleeps so her piggies don't get cold and I love knowing if it gets on her face she can still breathe through it. These blankets are awesome. And they get super soft after you wash them a bunch.

5. The Original Rollercoaster. I can't believe this brand is actually still around. This toy was actually my sister's when we were younger. My dad cleaned it all up for Scarlett to play with. She's still trying to figure out how to move them all along the track but she does love pushing the beads around. This one is really nice, the bottom is made of solid wood and it's made in the USA :)

6. Tommee Tippee Explora Straw Cup. Not really a toy but she is loving these cups! They've taught her how to sip through a straw and they keep her water nice and cool. Perfect for summer!

7. B. Parum Pum Pum Drum. She loves to bang on the drum with the drumsticks and shake the little maraca eggs. This toy comes with a lot of cute little instruments!
