Connor James: 26 Months


Dear Connor::

Here we are with another month come and gone. Every month it's hard to imagine that you could become more energetic and more handsome and develop even more personality, but yet each month you surprise me. It's hard to believe we are now cruising our way to 3. We may have a ways to go still but it sure does seem like you should still be my cuddling newborn.

Lately you have been all about mama. You may not be able to say a lot of things, but you sure can say mama. You are always so desperate for my attention and reaction. You want me to do bedtime every night and even handle getting you dressed even if your dad is right there. You definitely wear me out, but you are certainly my buddy and I can't imagine life without you now. Although I do joke that I will have to go to college with you.

You are doing so much more talking now. It's still not as much as I might like but I'm not going to complain about what you are doing. We have enough that we are able to communicate with each other. You understand really well, but sometimes you struggle with how to express yourself. But you have made so much progress and it turns out you are pretty funny when you do talk. You have started combining two words together now, although you can be pretty hard to understand and context clues are sometimes necessary, but you definitely have lots of thoughts and expressions.

Eating lately has been a very different story. I was expecting to face some eating struggles and that's pretty much exactly what we have dealt with. You eat breakfast so-so then you eat lunch great then dinner is touch-and-go. It's hard to get you to consistently eat because you are in the stage where you want to snack all the time. It's been a tough balance, but we making it through. And I will say that you have tried some foods that I never expected you to to eat and of course the flip side is that you don't eat foods that I fully expected you to have no problem with. I guess that's a two-year-old for you.

You have been all about trains and cars lately. You have setup some kind of mess of tracks and trains and even some dinosaurs on the ottoman and can't seem to get enough of them. You are constantly carrying around trains and even having dinosaurs try to eat me. You are also all about the superheroes these days. You love the Avenger action figures you have, your favorite being either Captain America or the Hulk. You also love The Incredibles because we love all things heroes.

You are such a fun kid. You love to dance and sing. You have so many expressions for every situation. You bring so much life into our house and life is so much better because you are in it. I love you so much little boy.

Love, Mama
