15 Months Old!

15 month photo -- he may need a haircut soon.

Its been awhile since I've written one of these updates! (I decided to do them when we have doctor's appointments -- so pretty much every three months.) It's kind of crazy how fast these last three months have flown by. And looking back since March, its crazy how much Henry has changed.




His face has lost all the remaining "babyness" and he really is looking so much older. Physically, the change has been less noticeable. Like I said recently, he wears clothes between 6-9 months and 12 months with the occasional 18 month thrown in there. He still wears size 3 diapers. But he is growing! Henry unexpectedly jumped up to 30.5" long (28 %!!)! He's now 20 lbs 14 oz. He now has 8 teeth, and 3 molars coming in.

Henry is still super active. He runs, climbs, dances, and tries to jump. He gives hugs, kisses, high-5's, slaps, kicks, and bites. Henry can also climb stairs like a pro, and goes down the slide at the park all by himself. Henry is also talking up a storm. I've lost count on the number of words he says -- but my best guess is somewhere in the 30-40 word range. His favorites are no, Elmo, Ama, Opa, gorilla, yeah, Big Bird, and Mama.  

Henry wore this jacket last summer too. Tiny guy.

Cousins. 


Henry's personality hasn't changed much over the last three months. He is still a very particular, crabby, difficult baby. I've resigned myself that he will probably be like this forever.

Double fisting.

"Is there something on my head?"




Hen's favorite things to do now are all about discovering stuff and learning. He loves books, tot school, and his play kitchen. His favorite things to do are to swing in the park swings, play in sand, read, and sing. 


Hen loves throwing the ball to the dogs.


Henry's favorite foods right now are bananas, blueberries, french fries, sweet potatoes, peanut butter, and asparagus. He also loves those squeeze pouches from the store. He now eats all table food. He still nurses three times a day, and gets two cups of breastmilk with snacks. His favorite snacks are chips, puffs, raisins, and cereal. 


Teething is strange.

Seeing these pictures, makes me really excited to see how different he looks and acts at 18 months!

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2021

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! 2021 UPDATE: Please be patient with links this year, with supply chain issues things are selling out faster and restocking slower. I anticipate some of the specialty toys will not restock once they are gone. Puzzles, in particular, have been difficult to find in stock. 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, bu

Montessori Toddler: Favorite Toys and Activities 18 to 20 months

I've been putting off this post for a little while because I felt a little disappointed that I didn't have more to share. See, Teddy just isn't that into materials, especially those on the shelf. He tends to return to a couple of favorites over and over again and ignore all other attempts at shelf work. But, really that's my own adult feelings getting in the way of Teddy's own interests, and developmental path.  It's also me subconsciously valuing fine motor skills and stillness as more important than gross motor play and movement. I working hard not to do that, and want to normalize that all toddlers are different. All children have different interests and that concentration doesn't have to mean sitting still for long stretches of time.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. With all that said, here are some of Teddy's favorites over the last couple of months. Favorite Montessori Toys 18 to 20 Months I'm listing the toys that have be
