Connor James: 3 Years



Dear Connor::

I can't believe you are 3! How did that happen?! These last three years have been a mix of pure joy and fear. You have definitely been a handful but I wouldn't have you any other way.

I don't know what to say. You have mostly been up to the same stuff. You are active, always getting into something. You are such a problem solver. I love how your brain works but sometimes I wish you wouldn't come up with some of the plans you come up with. But you haven't been seriously injured yet so I count that as a success! Your brain is constantly working and sometimes constantly scheming.

You are still sleeping like a pro. There are days that you don't nap but more often than not you still at least need the nap. You just don't like to nap because you don't like to have to go to your room. A few times I have let you stay in the living room with me and you have just fallen asleep on the floor. We butt heads a lot about nap time and I don't see that fight going away anytime soon.

Your imagination is unreal. You are always playing and pretending. There are vampires in the pantry or snow cows in the yard. I just love how energetic and creative you are. The world is so different through your eyes. It's just amazing to see your brain work in both problem solving and play. You are so very creative. And You definitely keep me on my toes.

You are very into superheroes right now. You are constantly asking to wear all your different costume pajamas all day long, your favorite right now being Spider-Man. You also spend a lot of time playing with your hot wheels cars, always making me carry them up and down the stairs so you can play with them no matter where we are. Th other thing you love is puzzles. It must go back to that problem-solving brain that wants to put things together. The favorite show hands down is Paw Patrol and your go-to movie is The Increeibles 2.

I love how individual you are from your sisters. You are definitely your own little person and not so much the yes man you once were for your big sister. Sometimes you guys butt hands because you both have different ways of doing something and often don’t see eye-to-eye. But you also give your big sister the biggest greetings when we pick her up from school causing everyone to smile and comment about how much you two adore each other. You certainly adore your baby sister and I’m pretty sure you get the most smiles. Often she looks around when she can hear you but not see you, just to find out where you are. You are such an amazing brother to your sisters.

I just can’t get over how much you have changed. You are such your own little person. You are so funny, creative and smart. You definitely make this family so much better because you are part of it. I love you so much.

Love, Mama
