Connor James: 17 Months


Dear Connor::

You my boy are trouble. And lately it feels like you are always in trouble. You definitely keep me on my toes. This was a big month around here because we made our big move into the new house. And you definitely love it! The first time we came to the house, you and your sister just ran around the empty house looking out all the windows - which are low enough for you to actually see out of - and you just couldn't get enough of the place. Now we are moved in and you are loving the house just as much - probably even more because now there's toys everywhere.

We also went on vacation this last month to the beach and you had a great time. You weren't sure about the sand and walking on it at first but you came around to it especially if you wanted something. You are definitely a water bug because you couldn't get enough of being in the ocean. You loved floating out there with whoever would take you. There was just so many things to see; you were a big fan of the birds and the parasailing. You had a great time at the beach for sure.

But with all the changes of moving and of being on vacation, your eating habits got way off. I am now trying to break some junk food habits and snacking habits that have been a bear to deal with. But you are slowly adjusting back to your chicken nuggets for lunch which is still your favorite. Of course what you really love is the fruit snacks at the end of lunch. But you are getting better at eating so that's what's important to me right now.

You are getting faster every day. You are definitely go-go-go and all about the climbing. You are definitely more of my daredevil with very little fear. Sometimes I wish the impulsive side of you wasn't so much in control. It's definitely a bit exhausting but I wouldn't have you any other way.

You are talking a lot more. Your vocabulary isn't the biggest but you are picking up words quickly. Communication doesn't seem to be an issue with you. We are able to talk to you and you seem to understand. You are also able to communicate back to us through a mix of words, gestures, and actual sign language. It works for all of us so we will take whatever we got.

You favorite thing to play with right now is cars. We have a parking garage that you are always playing with and moving cars around. You are also a bigger fan of books although you have been a little too antsy lately to sit through a whole book unless you are really tired. You love Princess and the Frog and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, of course anything with music is good with you.

You are an amazing little boy. You are into everything and always keeping me on my toes but you are a light in our world. Every month you surprise me in ways I never expected. It's honestly been a tough month with all the changes but you have done so well. I love seeing the world through your eyes. I love you goon. You are an awesome little boy.

Love, Mama
