Fall Reading for Littles

Hello everyone!! Tomorrow is OFFICIALLY the first day of fall! You can really tell here in Washington; the leaves are changing, the air is cooler....and all three of us have colds lol (Yay for germ season!)

Yesterday we took a quick trip into our local library to pick up some sweet books all about Halloween/Autumn. I thought it would be so fun to really bring in the season for Isla while also sharing the wonderfulness that is books. I really encourage y'all to check out your library if you don't already. I know nowadays it's so easy to overlook, but its such a fun activity to do with your little ones. Especially now that the weather is getting cooler, it's good to have ideas for indoor activities to keep them happy. Plus, it's free! Who doesn't love that?

I try to read to Isla fairly often, if not at least one book everyday. It encourages her to learn new concepts and words, so even though she doesn't quite understand now, it will pay off in the long run. 
These are the books we picked out at our library. The One about Gibbus Moony was so cute :) 

  
If you're looking for some suggestion on fall/halloween themed books for your kiddos I've got ya covered! Check out these:

11 Months Old | Isla Makai


It's been a while since I've posted one of these on here, huh?! I post (sometimes) regularly on my instagram, so I haven't forgotten to taken these pictures. I just never got around to putting them in blog form. So way to go Madi!! I really loved having these posts! And you know what's funny? I even said when I started these that I wasn't going to just forget 3 months..hahah oh joy. Life's funny that way.

So lets make up for 8....OMG EIGHT... months inconsistent baby updates..
. . .
weight | about 20 lbs
height | Over 30 inches, not sure how much over though
sleep | She finally started sleeping through the night last month!! *HALLELUJAH* As soon as her daddy came home and she got her own room, she was totally cool with sleeping without needing a boob every hour. My nipples appreciate that :)
eating | She's cut back to only breastfeeding about 5ish times a day. But she eats 3 meals and a snack or two on top of that. She usulally just eats variations of what we're eating.
likes | she loves toy cars, Peppa Pig, playing in dirt and water, and watermelon
dislikes | when we put the baby gate up, bedtime, and sometimes her carseat
milestones | She took her first steps on the 12th of August and since then has been walking more and more each day!
favorite moment | Seeing her and Caleb back together when he returned from his deployment. They adore each other now that they're back together.

. . .

I better not forget to do the twelve month photo as well. Like c'mon Madi, no excuses!!
How crazy is it that next month is her 1st birthday? That's going to be so fun. I can't wait to share it with y'all.

Until next post,
Madison Herron
