I'm a bit behind on the blog! Connor turned 13 months old 2 weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to posting about it! So much has changed in the last 6 weeks since he turned one. Connor is all over the place and is really steady on his feet. He's been walking now for awhile. Although he keeps me busy, I love that he is a bit more independent!
As you can see in the picture below, Connor is all about feeding himself. In fact, this new skill is quite frustrating during meals and causes a very, very big mess. He thinks he needs no help and he can do it himself...and even if he is having finger foods, he still thinks he needs a fork or spoon. There have been meals where I really don't know how much food he actually ate.....he wouldn't let me help, so I just let him go for it!
Connor really seems to understand so much more. He is able to follow some simple commands such as: "Go get your milk" or "Put the toy in." He is using the following signs: 'please,' 'more,' and 'milk.' Speaking of milk, this kiddo loves his milk....so much so that I have to make sure he's not drinking more than his allotted amount of 24 ounces a day per Dr.'s orders. He is babbling like crazy. As far as words go, he will occasionally repeat a close approximation to "all done," and 'bath' (it sounds like 'ba'). He will also babble "mamamamama" and "dadadadadada."
Connor loves, loves, loves, being outside. I'm pretty sure a ball or this car....
are his favorite toys. He loves getting in and out of this car. He also loves sitting in his little chair in our living room.
Elli has loved to accessorize since day 1 and we have just recently found out how much Connor loves his accessories too. This was Connor this morning...he found Scott's glasses and put them around his neck.
And this was Connor the other day. He walked around like this forever.
And as much as I don't want to admit....he has also been trying on Elli's headbands and one of her bracelets because right now he tries to do everything Elli is doing.
Connor is so much fun and I can't believe how fast he is growing!
