Connor James: 19 Months


Dear Connor:

You are 19 months! I swear each month is just going by faster and faster. I feel like I just wrote one of these but I guess not because here we are again.

Truthfully not too much has changed from last month. You are on the go constantly. You don't stop moving and you are fearless in everything you do. You fall a lot but most of the time you just get back up. Unless you hit your head, you just bounce back up again and keep going. Even sometimes when you do hit your head, you still get right back up again. That's just you. Now that the weather is cooling down, we are having to learn how slippery socks are on hardwood. It's something you haven't quite figured out completely yet.

You aren't doing too much talking yet. You are great at repeating words when prompted but you don't say too much independently. It's all mostly just squeals, grunts and nothing that makes sense. The three words that you do have down is mama, dada, and moon. The last isn't completely practical but at least I know what you are looking for every time you look up. I'm still waiting for the rest of your speech to get going, it just hasn't yet. You understand pretty much everything. There definitely isn't a lack of understanding, just a lack of communication back. Whether you follow directions is touch and go but I know you understand. You are only one afterall so following all directions isn't something you are too found of.

You are still pushing us when it comes to eating. Sometimes you eat great and other times not so much. Apparently you are loving the fact that we can't make you eat and there are some things you just won't eat and there's no way we can make you. So we are having to push back some which you don't like and it usually results in some screaming. But we are working on eating what you are given because that's it. It's honestly not going great. You definitely have a stubborn streak.

You seriously love yourself some Mickey. If I need to distract you Mickey works every time. There are days that I wouldn't have gotten a shower if it hadn't been for Mickey. You also love Moana. If you are upset about something, turning on the soundtrack tends to calm you down every time. You have a Moana book that you just can't get enough of. Between that book and Giraffes Can't Dance I don't get to read anything else.

You are definitely an awesome kid. You have so much life and spirit and you keep me on my toes. You are just an amazing little boy and I love watching your personality grow and change and watch you become you.

I love you so much, goon.

Love, Mama
