Connor James: 15 Months



Dear Connor::

You are getting so big. It hardly seems possible that you are another month older. And it seems even more impossible that I am as clueless as I was right after you were born but it seems that it is possible. You definitely keep me on my toes. You are constantly on the move and into everything. You are curious about the world and definitely want to see all that it has to offer every chance you get.

Well you still aren't walking yet but you are so close! You are doing a lot of standing around and even taking some steps but you don't want to fully commit to the walking thing. You can do it but I'm not sure you have figured it out yet. You are standing up in the middle of rooms great and really cruising around things but you just haven't decided you want to really get into walking. You have definitely mastered the stairs. You are going up and down like a champ, although you did have your first fall down some stairs recently which was really more rolling. You weren't hurt, just shaken - scared you more than anything.

You are definitely doing a lot more talking these days. Although there is no actual understandable words in there. But there are plenty of sounds. Pretty much the only word you actually say is mama but you'll get there. Mostly you like to squeal and yell. Noise is definitely your thing.

I do know that you are growing again and like a weed. These days you are wearing 2T clothes and eating all the time. I feel like you never stop eating actually. You aren't really all that picky on what you are eating most of the time but sometimes you want something and you cry until you get it. (I should mention you have also been going through a Wonder Week too and that screams temper tantrums to get what you want.) Your favorite food is definitely chicken nuggets. When in doubt go with chicken and cheese.

You are very much into books these days. You pull books off your shelves and find me to read to you. You like all your books about vehicles and things that move - Amazing Airplanes is still your favorite. You don't really have any favorite toys. You switch between things pretty quickly, although you do like anything that you can push buttons. And of course you love things you aren't supposed to have. You have recently taken to "talking on the phone." If you can hold it up to your ear then it's a phone and you are always so delighted when something becomes a phone you can hand off.

Although you are saying mama, I'm not your favorite person. It's hard to tell if you are a bigger fan of daddy or Addison. You can't seem to get enough of either one of them. And of course you wave at Stella Cat every time she walks by and you are even getting better at being gentle with her.

You are just changing so fast and I have a hard time keeping up. You are moving so fast. And I just want you to slow down a little. I can't get enough of you though, even if you completely wear me out. You are an awesome little boy and I will tell you that for the rest of your life because I never want you to forget how awesome you are. I love you so much, goon.

Love, Mama
