37 Weeks!

Another week down! I'm officially 37 weeks, or FULL TERM!! Henry will no longer be considered a premie, even if born tomorrow! Most babies born at this point are totally healthy, which takes a lot of worry off my mind!

I think I look slightly lower than last week. But one thing is certain - I'm rapidly outgrowing these maternity tanks.
There's not to much to update you on from last week. I still feel pretty much the same, although I've had a few days with a ton of contractions. They always make me stop and think that I might be going into labor, but they just aren't regular enough. The will come 5 min apart, then 7, then 3, then 15, and so on. Totally all over the place. I just hope they are creating some sort of progress, and maybe they are a sign labor will happen soon. I'm starting to think they are a sign that I might be over-doing the activity a little, since they tend to get closer together when I'm more active. But that's about it. I don't have a doctors appointment this week (for some reason I seem to have the only OB in the world that doesn't do weekly appointments until 38 weeks - but I'll live) so no news to report there.

Today Morgan and I realized we have almost no pictures of the two of us together with the belly. So we took a couple.
Henry still seems to be doing well. No signs of him slowing down, but he does seem to be having a harder time outright kicking me. I think he's probably just getting way to big. But he's still wiggling and stretching and trying his best to get the kicks in.

This week should be pretty low key. Its my LAST week of work for a long time which is exciting. I'm looking forward to hopefully having a couple days off before Henry comes after work is done, but I guess we will have to wait and see.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
