Catch the Moment 1/52

As promised, my first week (plus a couple extra days from the beginning of the year) for the Catch the Moment 365 project. So far, I'm finding Lightroom to be pretty frustrating, I'm used to really intuitive user friendly software, and this is just going to take some time. 

Day 1: My serious musician

Day 2: Henry's favorite toy for the day

Day 3: "I take a picture of you!"

Day 4: Hiding to avoid going outside. {iPhone - no edits}

Day 5: Left over Christmas -- taking down the tree

Day 6: Indoor Snow -- in his Halloween costume

Day 7: Pouring his homemade juice -- such concentration

Day 8: Quick grocery stroll

Day 9: Stumbled on Yo Gabba Gabba color matching {iPhone edited}

I just love following you and I'm interested to see what you think of Lightroom. I'm so familiar with Photoshop Elements I don't see the need to switch!

I'm so jealous of everyone's indoor snow activities! Send me some snow. Also, these are awesome! <3
Oooh, you totally just inspired me to bring some snow in the next time the kiddo is whining because we can't play outside when it's -20 degrees! Thanks for that!

Love the Gabba matching - nice colors and perspective!

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
