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.


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 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

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me.  This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable.  As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help , we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps
