A Toddler's Day & Mini Style.

     Between moving twice in two weeks, wedding planning and chasing
     a 16 month old, I've had my hands full.
     After a stressful day, I just look down at the knee high peanut wrapping her arms around my
     leg and all the worry goes away.
     This little girl is the joy of my life. How could you not smile after looking at her face?!
     Scarlett has been into everything.
     And when I say everything, I mean everything.
     From emptying rice onto the floor to digging out pots and pans to helping with the laundry.
     Her curiosity is wild and I'm having a hard time thinking of stimulating activities for her.
     Our activities include:
      Nature Walks
      Coloring with water markers
      Reading Books
      Making sheet forts
      Wood puzzles
      Peek A Boo
      Collecting things in a Basket.

      But sometimes I feel like I run out of things to keep her entertained.
     Any ideas? I'd love your thoughts and ideas on things to do with a toddler.  
     Her little mind is craving new things to learn!



  1. She is so precious! Love the toddler uggs!

  2. Well she's adorable, there's no question about that!!

  3. How lovely!!! Love her t shirt too!

  4. play dough, finger painting (?), playing at the park, playing in the leaves. Hope this helps- it can be hard to get creative with a toddler!

  5. What a cutie pie! 'Love her Beatles shirt! Music and dancing is usually a big hit with little ones. Puppets can be fun, too! Please give her a hug for me! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

  6. I randomly found your blog ...but omg how cute is your baby girl! She looks just like your BF!

  7. omygosh, her little outfit...and that photo of her dumping the rice - precious!!
    you have been one busy lady - you deserve a hot bubble bath and a glass of wine. <3

  8. Love her shirt & her UGGS remind me that I need to start looking for a new pair.

    Sorry to see the little spill there in that last shot.

  9. I am right there with you....seeming to run out of ideas and not wanting to bore her!
    My 16 month old has a new found love for dominos. I give her pots and spoons from the kitchen, and she makes "domino soup", haha.
    I also just bought cheap sponges in fun shapes at the dollar tree and she spent a good bit of time in the bathtub playing with them.
    Hope that helps! She's adorable! :)

  10. Cooking and laundry can actually be quite entertaining for the littles! You could bake some cookies and let her help. My little one loves to help me empty the dishwasher and put the soap in and press the button to start it! She also helps with folding the clothes! You could try stickers or a baby doll and carriage. My little one loves to push things around! Have you tried building blocks? Just some ideas! Love the outfit by the way! That beatles shirt rocks!

  11. She is a sweetie pie! My little one loves a bowl of water and some dolls - pretend bathtime!! Or tea set with water- tea party for the toys! Water is an underrated toy! I have even filled a pot with water and given the kids big paint brushes and let them paint the outside walls. They think they are being naughty! Hee hee! Claire xxx

  12. Oh! She is adorable!!

  13. she is absolutely gorgeous...those eyes are to die for! :)

  14. She is such a little peanut! and the clothes you put her in are adorable. Good taste!


  15. Love the Ugg Boots! Love the backing music to your blog too :-)

  16. My little girl loves to run over bubble wrap in her bare feet and pop the bubbles!
