on the shelves - 10 months

 rings on a post
This wooden ring stacker comes with six rings in three different sizes.  
Elise started with one ring, and now she's stacking two!

 discovery bottles
Elise loves to shake things, and these bottles are visually interesting when shook 
(left to right) colored water and dish soap, water and aluminum foil pieces, colored water and oil

 classified vocabulary: pets
According to Maria Montessori, when we talk to our ten month old, "the baby realizes that these words are meant for him, and he begins to grasp that we are saying them intentionally." (The Absorbent Mind)

 textured fabric basket
This basket holds squares of fleece, vinyl, satin, and mesh - all red, so that Elise can focus on texture.  I saw this on At Home with Montessori, and E has enjoyed exploring these fabrics for the past few months.  
The large squares are perfect for playing peek-a-boo! 

insect art cards
Elise continues to love Wee Gallery art cards.  
Now that the weather is getting nice, we're actually seeing some of these insects in our yard!  

 a jar of balls
I made this in and out activity with an empty peanut butter jar and five wooden balls.  The wooden balls are from this activity, but Plan Toys also sells sets of five balls for $5. 
(I know because I emailed the company to ask about replacements!)
