Connor James: 27 Month



Dear Connor:

I never know what to say to you each month. You are such an amazing kid. You are funny. You have so much personality. You are constantly changing and constantly keeping me on my toes. And you are definitely two.

Good or bad you are so expressive these days. You don't always express yourself the best, but we are constantly working on how to deal with being upset. It's all normal two-year-old stuff though. But the good and amazing is how much you are talking. You are putting two simple words together, but that's usually enough for us to understand what you are trying to say. We love hearing you talk and it makes life so much easier to try to figure out what you want now that you are actually talking.

The biggest thing for you this month was that we took the side of your crib officially putting you in a toddler bed. We weren't sure how you would handle it, but you know that when it's time to sleep, you stay in bed and do that. However, you have fallen out of bed a couple times. You just move around too much in your sleep but you are adjusting so that should happen less often. But you love it. You love being able to get in and out of bed by yourself now. You can also let yourself out of your room which is nice so that if you wake up you can just come get us which you have done a couple times now. We have your monitor in but you usually come find us silently. Overall you are adjust really well. It's just hard to believe you are big enough to have you transitioning to a toddler bed.

You have been all about daddy these days. It's not that you don't love mama still but you and Daddy had a morning of just you two and that seemed to have bonded. Whenever he gets home from work you run to him and hug his leg just says dada over and over. Every weekday morning, you wake up and ask for daddy. I always tell you that he's at work so you say "dada, work, bye bye." Then we go about our day. You are okay with him at work but you want to know where he is. You two have really become buddies.

Not much has changed in what you love. Lately you have been loving being outside, especially now that we got the tower up you love to climb the slide then slide back down on your belly. Lately you have been really loving books. Your favorite is Little Blue Truck which you lovingly call beep beep. You are just like your sister in that you love having books in your bed because apparently you never know when you might want to read. Mostly you playing trains these days. You are getting pretty good at setting up train track and building whenever you can.

You are constantly moving and constantly wearing me out. But I can't imagine life without you. You are unique in so many ways and as I always tell you, you do you kid. I love you so much.

Love, Mama
