I admit holding my breath while my 7,5-month-old was chewing raisins.
Although we are into the Baby-Led Weaning style, watching her eating raisins was too much for me.
Now I am totally a believer! How happy and confident a baby is when they get to choose what/ how much/ how fast to eat.
Apparently, babies know what's best for themselves (don't we all?)

What is even cuter than baby feet? 
These barefoot sandals are my new obsession!
I love everything about them: 
searching for the perfect pattern on the internet/ creating a new pattern/ collecting fine materials/ 
crocheting using the smallest crochet hook I've ever seen/ 
admiring tiny sandals/ kissing baby feet/ share them with you!

This classic Montessori mobile is simple yet beautiful.
It moves smoothly in the tiniest breeze and won't overstimulate the infant.

We introduce it to the baby at 5 weeks.
We present it when the baby is calm, well fed and aware.

Making this mobile was easy and fun- the best part is how much Lydia enjoys it!

All the preparations I made for my second baby was gathering and making montessori infant material.
I love the Montessori way of living! 
I was waiting for this moment to come- having my precious little one and trying out all these things Montessori parents swear by. 


I truly believe Montessori works, but still it is a great surprise to watch how well this applies to an infant's needs -
the baby is only 2 weeks old and she was occupied by these pictures for what felt like ages to me!

When we had our first baby, we were busy enough worrying if we are holding/ dressing/ caring for her the right way.

Now I am confident to relax and smile just picturing this little new baby in cute cloth diapers.
