Little Miss in the Autumn…

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this time of year. On a crisp, clear autumn day, full of crunchy leaves and glowing colours, I love it. On a damp, dark and dismal one (a bit like today!) it can make me feel a bit down in the dumps.

But thankfully we have had some nice, bright days lately and Little Miss has certainly been embracing the season. It’s been lovely to see those little autumnal things amuse and enthrall her, much more so than any of them did this time last year. Little Miss in the Autumn She loves spotting squirrels in our garden and always asks “what they doing?”, one of her favourite questions at the moment.

She loves walking in crunchy leaves.

She loves playing with leaves at the park, especially getting a bunch and pretending they’re a duster to clean the slide with!

She loves collecting leaves, taking note of the different colours and shapes. Every time we go out we seem to come back with a mini collection under the buggy.

She also loves collecting little sticks and sending them down the slide or playing a little game where she shares them out among family members.

She’s fascinated by things like acorns and sycamore tree aeroplanes. She’s yet to encounter conkers but I know she’d love them so I need to work on that one.

Little bugs are also ultra interesting. She spent ages (well toddler ages anyway!) looking at ladybirds at the park last week and catching them on one of her stash of leaves.

She also loves wearing her bright yellow wellies and finding a muddy puddle to play in. This time last year she was still pretty unsteady on her feet and puddles, while enjoyed, often ended up being fallen into by accident, which kind of spoilt the fun! Now she can really play properly. Standing in them to see how far her feet get covered. And yet more leaf action as she loves collecting them to throw into puddles and see if they float.

And I mustn’t forget Little Mister. He, of course, always accompanies us on our little excursions and seems to like getting out and about. He’s very nosey and loves having a good look around. He’s always been keen on watching clouds and branches blowing in the breeze – such is life when you’re only a few months old!

This time next year I’m sure we’ll be chasing after him and trying to stop him eating stuff! He already seems to be a much more ‘mouthy’ baby than his sister was. But for now at least he often spends much of the time out dozing. So here’s one of the cutest pictures ever of him doing just that at the park back in September.

  1. Adorable little ones you have! Little miss looks as though she’s having a fabulous time – nothing like a good wander in the autumn forest. #letkidsbekids

  2. Its been hours after I had my school run but I am still wet and cold and is not inspired to move. Like you I love autumn when its bright but not like it at all when its soggy like today. #LetKidsBeKids

    • We got lucky this morning, bright sun so were able to get out again. But we’ve got the rain again now. It’s been pouring for last two hours. Hopefully we’ll get a longer dry spell again soon.

  3. Autumn is such a wonderful time for outdoor exploration, so much nature to find and discover. Love the last pic 🙂
    Thanks for linking #LetKidsbeKids

    • Yes, we’re loving exploring. She’s so inquisitive and keen to see and learn new things at the moment. And that last picture just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy every time I look at it – I’ve got it framed in the living room too!
