Oh Lotion - Nicknames

Morgan and I never even seriously considered any boy names, other than Henry, when I was pregnant. In fact, we knew "Henry Morgan" was going to be our first boy's name months before I was even pregnant. I have no idea where the name came from, who suggested it, or why it was so easy for us to decide.

{It will not be as easy for our next boy.}

But for as much as we love the name Henry, it surprising how often we call him something other than his given name. His most common nicknames are: 


Big 'ole baby boy

Lotion - Henry has loved Lotion since he was very tiny. Overtime, we just started calling him "Lotion." Honestly, we call him Lotion more often than anything else. 

Buddy Buddy - It's never just Buddy. Henry refers to himself as Buddy Buddy. Its very cute. 

Mister Mister



Baby Boy 

So are we crazy? Do you refer to your babies by nicknames? Or do you stick to their given name?

Haha! Our most common nickname for Colin is Wobsta. After we had finished his nursery, before he was born, our then-3 year old niece came over to visit. The room has an under the sea theme, and there were various sea creatures on the walls. Emily pointed to the lobster and said "dat's a WOBSTA." We laughed so hard, and eventually started referring to our growing fetus as "the wobsta." I guess it stuck. :)

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
