Connor James: 16 Months


Dear Connor::

Hey there little boy. Although you aren't so little these days. You are growing way too fast. I'm not sure I'm ready for the toddler that you are becoming and the chaos that you are already causing. You definitely like to get into everything and check everything out and be everywhere.

The biggest thing you have done lately is you finally started walking! For the longest time you were just taking about four steps and that was it but it was almost all the sudden you were off. And now you can't be stopped. You are actually pretty fast and good at it now. You love playing chase with your dad and sister. You are just on the go! You are also big on climbing up things so I have to really watch you these days because you will attempt to climb just about anything. Long ago you mastered stairs but recently you have started sliding to get down. Apparently you have learned that it's a lot faster to get down that way but you definitely make me nervous.

At your last appointment I talked to your doctor about your language. You really weren't talking too much and I will admit that I am a bit sensitive to any kind of delays. But your doctor told me that we shouldn't worry too much just yet. Then apparently overnight you decided to put my mind at ease by talking. More words started coming out and even if it wasn't exactly a word, sounds were clearer and there were more of them.

I think you are growing again because all you have been doing lately is eating it seems. Sometimes you eat more than your sister so between the growing and the walking, you are always eating. But luckily you aren't too picky about what you eat although you definitely have your favorites. You love chicken nuggets - you can never get enough of chicken nuggets. French fries, pizza and popcorn shrimp are among your other favorites.

You never seem to have any favorite toys but you play with just about everything. You do love cars however. Otherwise you love the play in the kitchen, look are books, and with some wooden toys we have. When we go outside you love to swing and you are a little water bug. You are a fan of playing in the pool or splashing in the water/sand table. As long as you can make a mess and forever be moving, you are pretty happy.

I just can't believe how much you are growing and changing. You are always making me laugh and smile. I just can't get enough of you - although sometimes you completely wear me out. You definitely keep me on my toes. But I wouldn't have you any other way. I love you so much goon.

Love, Mama
