Connor James: 35 Months


Dear Connor::

I'm not crying because you are almost three - you're crying. Okay so maybe it's me. It's so hard to believe that you are about to turn three in just a month. The last three years have definitely flown by and you have changed so much!

You have hit the age that not much changes from month to month now. But you do constantly surprise me. You are forever in motion. You are so bright. You are amazing at solving problems. You catch on quick. It's always awesome to see your brain work.

You have been putting yourself to bed lately. You will come to me and tell me that you are tired and then off to bed we go usually a much earlier than bedtime. Sometimes that means you are up a lot earlier but often it just means that you just needed a little extra sleep. Naps aren't as often these days. You seem to need a lot of them but you don't always like to take them, but you are still having quiet time.You just like to play more than sleep.

As far as eating is concerned there are days that you do awesome and days that you don't want to eat anything I give you. It's a real struggle sometimes because you can definitely be a bit of a picky eater. Lunch is your best eaten meal and the one that I give you the most options for so that makes sense. You have been getting better about eating the food I give you, but there are days that I seriously wonder if you are getting enough.

As a two year old, you pretty much only ever play and you love doing that. You love playing with your superheros, you love playing superheroes. You love doing puzzles and playing with your cars. That's pretty much all you do. I think you miss running around outside though. You have so much energy and you rarely know what to do with it all, although you do have some killer dance moves that helps with that energy.

You do so much talking these days. You are so clear in what you want and what you have to say. And it turns out that you are pretty funny. However you do get some terrible twos going on too because the temper tantrums are real. But we get through them and truthfully they are getting fewer and farther between. You just have an idea of what you want and sometimes that's just not reality.

You are definitely obsessed with mama. You rarely let anyone else do anything for you. Truthfully it's exhausting sometimes but I know that you won't always want me the way you do now so I'll take it while I can.

You are an amazing kid. You love your sisters and have been a great big brother since your baby sister was born. You adore your big sister, and can't wait to see her when we pick her up in the afternoons from school. You are funny and sweet. You are smart and quick on your feet. You have some killer dance moves and are always in motion. I love you so much, goon.

Love, Mama
