Keeping London occupied could qualify as an Olympic sport. Homegirl has a serious case of baby ADD, which gives Peyton’s OCD a run for its money. I’ve broken my cardinal rule, and lifted our ban on “toys that make noise” – I usually save those for Christmas presents for other people’s kids. But desperate times call for
desperate measures noisy toys. I’ve wrangled up some of our [read: London’s] favorites (and Peyton loves them, too):
It seems like most toys need to make an obnoxious amount of animal noises and trumpets, or have catchy songs that get stuck in my head FOR DAYS. The art cards are perfect for when we have London in the stroller or car for a long period of time. And of course, what kid doesn’t love blocks?? Peyton builds towers, and London demolishes them. Which occupies both of them for at least 10 minutes. In the photo above, they’re both playing with the music table (with the legs removed, so Lo can reach it better). That fun lasts until both girls want to play with the same section (because, of course), which usually ends in London sitting on Peyton and tears all around.
If you have any other toy suggestions that are perfect for an almost 10 month old and her big sis, please leave me a comment! We are always looking for more
