Connor James: 31 Months



Dear Connor::

We are inching closer and closer to 3, which is hard to believe. I'm not ready to have a three year old yet. Although I'm not feeling so sad about escaping the terrible twos. I will admit that the terrible twos are a little less terrible these days. It seems we are slowly easing up on the worst of it.

This month has been full of mama and Connor time. You have been really been enjoying being an only child during the day. You know that there is a someone named Emma in mama's tummy but you have no idea what that actually means so you may not be too pleased about the added company during the day. But for now, we are enjoying the time together. We watch a lot of Mickey Halloween. We build a lot of trains. We play with a lot of Legos. It's nice to have the time together while we have it.

Although the terrible twos seem to mostly be behind us, we are struggling with other things. You can be a very picky eater which definitely makes it frustrating when it comes to feeding you. You usually do okay with breakfast and lunch but most of the time I can't get you to eat dinner. It's really frustrating but we are working on it and trying to get it figured it out. The other part of the twos that we are still struggling with is napping. You still very much need naps in the afternoons but I struggle with getting you nap some days. You do okay when you don't nap but you are definitely happier when you do. When you do take a nap, you usually sleep from about 12:30 to about 3:20, so it's definitely a good nap. And you still seem to be sleeping well at night, especially since you are in your bigger bed. You have adjusted to that and enjoy having more room especially when it comes to all the books you like to keep on your bed.

This month you went to the dentist for the first time. I wasn't sure how you would do, although I knew I might have to work on convince you a little. You definitely weren't interested in having them look at your teeth but after some bribing with Mickey superheroes, you finally let them clean your teeth. You even let them take x-rays and have your teeth looked at some more. You handled it pretty well, and we learned that your two teeth in one has just one root and it shouldn't impact your adult teeth one day, but we have to keep an eye on it for now.

You are doing so much talking these days which I love. You have so much to say especially now that your sister isn't around to talk to for you during the day. We are still working on not whining first when you need help but you are slowly getting better. I am so proud of how well you are doing and love hearing all you have to say, even if it includes you constantly telling me that you don't want to use the potty chair. We'll get there.

You are such an amazing boy. You are hilarious and unique. I may have to work every day to keep you alive because you are so clumsy and all over the place, but it's a job I'm willing to do. I'm lucky to be your mom and I can't wait to see what you do next. I love you so much.

Love, Mama
