Connor turned 21 months old a few weeks ago and I'm just now getting around to posting an update on our big boy!
Connor is becoming more and more independent by the day. He wants to do everything by himself!! He is talking more and doing a great job learning his colors.
Here are some things we've learned about our big boy in the past month....
Connor is steadily becoming more strong willed. We've noticed this mainly during mealtime. Unfortunately we have to use bribery many times to get him to eat an adequate dinner.
Connor is terrified of gorillas! I mean terrified!!
Connor loves, loves, loves being outside, swinging & shoes....shoes....and more shoes!
He still requires at least a 2 to 3 hour a nap daily. I discovered what would happen if he only slept for about 30 minutes and quickly realized it is not fun and completely unpleasant. Big boy needs his sleep and I'm thankful for that!
He's the sweetest and will still cuddle up to us before bed so that we can sing to him.
He loves his 'nineys' and now has 2 of them (we lost one, so I made another one only to find the original one in the garage the next morning).
Connor loves to do everything that big sis does! When she's not around he often says "sissy?"
He has such a sweet tooth! He loves his ice cream and will eat every little last drop!
Connor looks at the garbage man as if he is a celebrity. It has become a part of our weekly routine to watch the garbage truck! Connor is all about his planes, trucks & busses.
Connor requires reading material on the toilet :) This was the first night we let him try out the potty....he immediately ran to grab his Netjets book. I'm pleased to say he's gone on the potty twice now and gets so excited when he does. We're 2 for 3 in terms of trying to use the potty....I'd say we're doing pretty good. Although I'm not ready for him to be potty trained and I'm not ready to start the process, I think we'll continue to let him try it out each day (or at least when we remember!!).
Connor is changing so much daily! We can't believe that he will soon be 2!!
