It was a fun week at our house, but I forgot to have my camera close by for most of it! I just kept forgetting it, which is very unlike me. But we had fun anyway and I reminded myself what I always tell other moms, the moments are more important than capturing them! Our tots could care less if we have any photos of Tot School, we do that for each other…and for Mommy-memories right? So, I spent most of our week just in the moment with Krash! Here are a few of our captured moments…
Our Bottle Top Name Cards made an appearance this week. Krash still loves to spell Pop Pop’s name first! He did really well with this, as always…it’s one of his favs!We LOVE our Bloem and Grow Blocks. Krash can spell his name now, and he adores lining the letters up with his special block set. He played with his blocks tons this week, since he just recently learned to spell and recognize his name…he’s so proud and goes around spelling it for us all the time!
We haven’t had our latches board out in awhile, so he loved this! I couldn’t believe how much better he was with it!
Another hand-made favorite is this awesome Itsy Bitsy I Spy bag, which we WON from Baby Love Blankies, back when Itty Bitty Bookworm had their blog celebration! This is an animal bag with letters in it also, and Krash LOVES it!!! He found animals for a really long time!!! I plan to get a few of these as Christmas gifts, they are wonderful!
Lots of packages came this week, providing us with some free Tot School tools…
Krash played with Dominoes a lot, doing many different things with them. They are a great learning tool!
We did Rr for Robots, using some special robots stickers I had bought just for the letter R!
Photo Learning Book
We only got to one color this week, brown. We only have white left and then we will move on to another topic! I am working on printing them all up for the boys now!
Yup, we had one last week of fun monster stuff, honestly because I don’t have our next theme quite ready yet and we had so much fun with monsters!
Matching Shape Monsters to their “Shape House”.
I bought Krash a monster notebook and pencil from the dollar section at Target, it was the best $1 I have ever spent! He LOVED this notebook and “wrote” in it all week!
We brought our riding toys up on the deck and had a blast! The Plasmacar continues to be a loved toy by all…even Mom and Dad!
Not that this is the best photo, but I love what it symbolizes. Krash is VERY happy with the lunch I made for him…a concoction I came up with myself (I will share on Lil Ladybug this week). I love that he is happy for lunch and not whining.
