Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party

Just before Henry's 3rd Birthday, we held his Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party. If you follow me on Instagram, then you are well aware of Henry's obsession with all things Yo Gabba Gabba. This party was fun and pretty easy to put together -- since I could purchase some things and make some fun details. 



I made the banner over the fireplace, the gift bags, and the picture banners. All were made with simple scrapbooking tools and plain card stock. We kept the menu pretty simple -- mini hotdogs, chips/salsa, veggie cups with ranch, and fruit salad. Of course we had some dairy-free cupcakes. And, Henry's favorite -- juice. 



The look on Hen's face when he woke up and say everything was pretty amazing. He loved every second of the day. In the morning we had a party with some of his friends. Henry did great until everyone sang Happy Birthday, where he proceeded to get super upset. He also refused to open any presents, but people seemed to understand. 



In the afternoon, we had our families over. Henry was pretty over-sugared and excited by this time, but still loved running around with his Grandmas and cousins. There was more refusing to open presents which I think caused his cousins' (ages 5 and almost 3) minds to explode. 

This lovely banner covered the giant hole we have in our wall from our water damage from earlier this year. It actually worked pretty well! 

Overall, the day was great and I was so happy to celebrate Henry and everything he loves.

Ahhhh, everything looks awesome! I have no idea what Yo Gabba Gabba is, but we are going to a Yo Gabba Gabba Party in two weeks! I love the Oh Henry bars, too. So cute! Ethan hates when people sing Happy Birthday, too. Or acknowledge him in a large crowd. It's sort of amusing, lol. Happy birthday Henry!

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
