I have a 12 month old. I know, I know, I can't believe it either. Every few months I like to highlight the toys that are really rocking my daughter's world. Today I'm sharing what she is enjoying as a 12 month old.
Some toys just never go out of style. There is a simplicity to the classic ring stacker or shape sorter and these toys still hold the attention of infant and toddlers. But in today's world of lights and sounds even classics get reimagined. I've put together a list of classic toys that are still available to purchase and their updated counterparts.
Nostalgia Alert: If you were a child in the 90's, chances are you watched every single one of the following titles and it will make you long for a VCR to watch them all over again. There is good news though! While I may not be able to enjoy these on VHS (what's that, right?) I have been able to find them on DVD and I cannot wait to introduce my kids to a few of my favorite movies and specials.
I have a 10 month old. I have a 10 month old. I have to keep repeating that because I can't believe it. She is growing so fast and though some days feel like they drag on for an eternity, the months are flying by. I've shared what C loved to play with when she was 4 moths, 6 months and 8 months. Today I'm going to talk about what keeps this 10 month old occupied.
Easter is almost here! What better gift to put in your child's Easter basket than a book? Or if you want to build the egg-citement for Easter you can read Easter themed books each night leading up to the fun day!
I love holidays and I love celebrating those holidays. St. Patrick's Day is this Saturday and part of our celebrating has been reading holiday themed books. We talked about Valentine's Day books last month, let's take a look at a few St. Paddy's Day themed books this month.
So much wisdom inside the pages of any given Dr. Seuss book. Today on his birthday, children across the country are celebrating with Read Across America Day. A great way to honor one of the most famed writers. Take a look at some great quotes from his most beloved books and some activities you can do with your children to commemorate the day!
This first year of my baby's life is really flying by. It has been really interesting to see which toys she gives her attention to as she gets older and older. Previously I've shared her favorite toys from when she was a 4 month old and when she was a 6 month old. Today I'll share what she loves as an 8 (!!) month old.
Reading to children is important for their development and a great way for parents to form a strong bond while also decompressing from their long day. Speaking from experience, reading the same books over and over again, though fine for the little ones becomes pretty redundant for parents. Which is why I like to use upcoming holidays as a reason to refresh some of the books in our rotation. Valentine's Day is coming up and what better gift to give your littlest Valentine than a few new books?
A few months back I talked about the toys C most gravitated towards as a 4 month old, now I'm going to to discuss which ones she's liking as a 6 month old.
