Connor James: 22 Months


Dear Connor::

I can't believe we are getting so close to two! I'm not ready for that yet. You aren't supposed to be two yet. You have to be my little baby!

You have so much personality that comes through every day. You are just so full of life. You have one of the best laughs. You even snort when you laugh which I can't get enough of it. You are definitely full of giggles and happiness. Most of the time you are just the happiness kid I have ever met. You very much go with the flow and just so easy-going.

Lately you haven't been quite as happy, although sometimes when you are sick it's hard to tell that you actually are because you mostly stay in a good mood. You have been getting all four of your 2-year molars recently and that has been rough. Of course you are getting all four at once - you couldn't go easy on us. It's been a bit exhausting lately but we are making it through.

You have been going through quite the mama stage lately. Your father can do all the same things as me but you will scream your head off until you get to me and have me do it. It's nice to be so loved but sometimes it's exhausting. You are just all about mama pretty much all the time.

You are pretty much up to the same stuff that you were up to last month. Our biggest change with this month has definitely been your teeth. You are still interested in the same things - Moana, cars, trains, Mickey, dinosaurs. You love to dance and you never stop moving. You are a bundle of fearless energy.

Although you still aren't doing a ton of talking and are probably still behind other kids the same age, you are getting there. You are definitely able to repeat more and you really study our mouths as we speak. Sometimes you are hard to understand but you are trying and that's definitely important. We are still communicating a lot with sign language and it never really takes you long to pick up new signs. Although I do wish you were talking more, you are getting there. Much like your sister at the same age, you least have very good understanding.

You are definitely my picky eater. We went through phases with your sister when she was picky about certain foods but you are a little harder. You just like what you like so that's what you want. I usually come up with at least one food you will eat during dinner but some days you are really tough to feed. We are making it through but it's a challenge.

Luckily you are still my good sleeper. You love sleep. You nap well still, although it's never long enough for either one of us because I have to get you up for school pick up, but you still nap well. It's usually about 2 hours during the day then other 11-12 hours at night. I'm not going to complain about how you sleep at all. With the molars we have had a few more issues because you have had a little cough and a runny nose but we put an extra pillow in your crib and it has helped some. Which by the way you love pillows. There isn't a pillow you won't lay on.

You have so much life and character. You are a happy boy, who just makes us all so happy. You adore your sister. Love your father and can't get enough of mama. You have definitely meant so much to our family and we can't imagine it without you. I love you so much, little boy.

Love, Mama
