Just as Conner is leaving the two's, Shep is entering. Eighteen months to about 2 1/2 yrs is just plain hard! Conner was independent,but in some ways I think Shep is more so, probably because he has an older brother. As I type this he's trying to climb up into the recliner, while saying, "NO help!!" He has to climb into his car seat by himself (that takes awhile, so we have to allow some extra time when trying to go somewhere=) and climb into his high chair etc. Every age has it's joys, but I'm glad they don't stay 18 months forever!!
Here are a few cute Conner quotes, so I don't forget.
Conner was using masculine pronouns to talk about something I was doing. Me: "Conner, I'm a girl." Conner: "No, Mom. Actually, your not a girl. Your a Mom."
Conner ran into his Sunday school class last week exclaiming, "I'M BACK!!" hehe
This morning I heard Conner talking softly in his room. He is FINALLY waiting quietly in his room until I come to get him in the morning. As I came in he said, "I'm just talking about the donut store and ice cream store and how I like chocolate." Yesterday, I woke up to hearing Conner singing the ABC's in his bed. It was so precious.
Conner likes to teach Shep what things are and how to same them. It's hilarious. He will pronounce the object very slowly and deliberately to help him.
He loves it when our whole family is together. He'll always say, "The whole family is together!" The boys and I were eating lunch. Conner: "The whole family is eating- Conner, Mommy and Sheppie. Daddy would be so happy to be with us!"
My little boys is becoming so sweet and fun. He likes to make up songs and sing them. He's started naming some of his toys. I love 3 year olds!
EDIT: Forgot these
Conner has started coming up with excuses for things. Last night he kept saying, "I can't eat it. It's going to make me gag!!" Sometimes when I ask him to do something he'll say, "That's too dangerous for me!!"=P
