Catch the Moment 2/52

Another week down. This week was busier and reaching for the camera was harder, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Editing this week, focusing on the basics -- white balance and reducing the noise. I've also noticed I've made it two whole weeks, without getting into the picture, I should work on that.

Day 10: First nap Henry's taken for me in months!


Day 11: Saturday morning Legos.


Day 12: My working companion in her favorite spot -- in front of the heater. {iPhone -- unedited}


Day 13: Movie, by the glow of the iPad

Day 14: Coloring at the counter.


Day 15: "I hungry" as we're tucking him into bed -- finishing dinner in his pjs.


Day 16: Tot school, blog prep.

They're all beautiful. I like the colouring one. I think the rainbow of colours really adds a lot.

I love the napping picture!

You're much nicer than we are, "I'm hungry" is a commonly ignored bedtime stall tactic around here *sigh*
This was a one time thing! For some reason that night he ate ZERO dinner which generally means a crazy early wake-up wanting breakfast. So a couple extra minutes at night, bought us a couple extra hours in the morning.

He has tried the dinner thing since, but we haven't caved again since he usually has eaten some dinner - which is enough to avoid an early morning visitor!

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
