Baby List: 8 to 12 months

Boxes for toys

In the last four months A went from baby to full-blown, running, talking toddler. In that time her preferences changed a lot.

When she was about 6 months old, she decided she didn’t love pacifiers, but now we have to put about five in her crib every night.

Right after A started walking, we moved to a new house with stairs. We tried several baby gates without luck, so instead we have focused on monitoring her and teaching her how to properly and safely go up and down stairs.

  • The tupperware cabinet is her most favorite kitchen cabinet. Her second is the pots and pans.
  • Balloons
  • Bubbles. There is nothing that makes her calm down as fast as blowing some bubbles. Bonus: if you blow bubbles in the kitchen, it can count as mopping the floor!
  • Boxes empty cardboard boxes of all sizes and shapes.


  • Desitin This is the only thing that cleared up a particularly recent rough diaper rash. Don’t worry about the scent, you get used to it!
  • Baking soda baths. When her diaper rash started getting out of control, we started giving her a bath with about a tablespoon of baking soda in it, which seemed to help. The only catch is remembering there is baking soda in the bath and not using bath water to rinse her hair!
  • Trend Lab Gray Fleece CribWrap Wide Rail Cover for Crib Front/Back, Gray with teeth came a lot of chewing. A enjoyed chewing on her crib rails. Before that became an issue, I got these and they were worth every penny.
  • We have one of the two needed (one for each car) Graco My Ride 65 LX Convertible Car Seat, Coda car seats, as A is starting to be too tall for the bucket seats.
