Settling In

 Move complete{ish}. We are officially mostly moved into our new house. The move was about as successful  as we could have hoped. Stuff was everywhere. Stuff was thrown into a truck. Henry had his first, second, and third sucker to keep him occupied. And nothing was broken.

A week later, life is still very chaotic. There's painting, unpacking, cleaning, and a million other things to do. I'm kinda overwhelmed just thinking about it all. But I know slowly but surely we will get there.

Outside of sleeping, Henry is doing pretty fantastic with the transition. He's been curious and happy to play in all the new rooms. Sleeping, which of course is never Henry's strong suit, has been a different story. Over the last week, Henry has only napped 3 or so days. He has slept through the night once. I know its just an adjustment period, and hes scared of the unfamiliar environment, but it's not making life easier.

Henry's mystery virus of doom has seemed to have gone away, but he did have to be checked by a pediatric GI doctor. I'll do a full update once we get the test results back, but we are looking into the possibility of more severe food allergies.

I just hope life settles down soon and we can get back to our routine!

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
