Here we are again! Celebrating your monthly milestone. I sound like a broken record but I don't know how you got so big so fast. Especially this month. You have turned the page and are much less baby and much more big guy than ever before.
You had a big first this month: YOUR FIRST HAIRCUT. We waited as long as we could but boy, I could only handle your bangs and mullet for so long. You did so well getting your hair cut. I was completely impressed.
You have gained tons of confidence in yourself this month. The above picture displays that perfectly. You are no longer timid with your physical abilities but love to climb, jump, flip and move. It's been interesting watching you find your limits and discover what you are capable of.
We've lost track with the number of words you say. You use about 20-25 words on a daily basis. Your favorite is 'no' (of course) and you tend to use it all the time, even when you really want to say yes. You have decided to call Mom 'Ma' and now scream it on a daily basis. You can say 'George', thanks to your new obsession with Curious George.
I have grown wiry of trying to do chores without your assistance and now let you help with the laundry, unloading of the dishwasher and throw away trash. You love being such a big help, even if it means extra work on my end.
We went 3 days without a pacifier before I caved and gave it back to you after you chewed on everything you could find in your crib, including your teething necklace (insert heart attack here). You just require your pacifier for naps and bedtime and that's that. We'll lose it eventually.
Another big step was made this month. You will be starting preschool in the Fall and I'm hoping you do well. You have a lot of growing and maturing between now and then so I'm excited to see how you react to going to school for the first time.
You continue to be the center of our universe. You are such a happy guy, even on the bad days. Thank you for allowing us to see the world through your eyes, Connor J. It's been a wonderful ride and every twist and turn as been one that we will cherish for years to come.
We love you,
Momma and Papa Daddy
