New world, new words!

Hello Everyone!

Once again, I apologize for the lack of new posts! I am finding it harder and harder to have any free computer time these days!

I had meant to comment on the pictures that Derek posted, but it already seems like so long ago that those were taken, and so much has changed!

Connor got quite a haircut a week or so ago, and at first I was upset that it was too short, but looking at those last pictures, he sure had a crazy mop of hair before! I will be sure to get Daddy to put up some post haircut pictures as soon as he can.

So, what is new with the Con-man, you ask? He is walking like crazy, and though he is still a little wobbly, he is gaining speed and accuracy at a rapid pace! He loves to chase a ball around on the deck, and is getting the hang of his "outside shoes".

He is also picking up new words every day! Here is a short list of what he says now:
"Bark bark bark","woof woof woof", or a combination of the two!

And there are more, I am sure! But - I do have to add that although Daddy and I know what he is saying, few other people would know more than door, more and possibly bird!
Pretty much all of the words that start with 'B' are some variation of 'baaa' and the same goes for the D words!

He also just today started saying "on" and I am sure that is because he watched his cousin Kaden turning a lightswitch off and on yesterday after Easter Dinner and exclaiming "ON!!" with a fit of giggles each time the light got brighter!

Connor also finally calls me "Ma"! He has been calling Derek "Da" for weeks now but I have been nameless to him until just recently! And he is filling in the "O" in E-I-E-I-O again which I think is totally adorable!

I have been restraining myself from getting Connor weighed since his birthday, but I think I am going to take him in tomorrow and see how he is doing. Despite knowing that it's safer to keep him rear facing in the car seat for as long as possible, I am itching to turn him forward, and I think he just may have broken that 20 pound mark finally!

I will be sure to update with his stats tomorrow when we get back!

Well, that is all for now! I know I say it every time, but I promise not to wait so long before the next update!

It sure was neat to hear Connor talking and pointing at all sorts of things this weekend! And his hair cut is very cool!
