I have to say, though 3 comes with its challenges (which can be oh-so-rough), Connor can leave me speechless with his adorableness. One of my favorite things is the voice he has when he is playing/telling a story. That and when he climbs next to me in a seat and says "make space". I don't know where he learned that from, but it is really cute. 

Some of Connor's current favorites in life are all things train, "little" Legos, Diego, cheese (in any form, but it MUST be yellow), anything sweet, being at Papa & Memaw's house and playing with the neighbor boys. Connor still enjoys reading, which makes this mama really happy. I love it when I hear him reading himself a story. Some of his current favorites are the Maisy books and Clifford books and he really likes the Little People flap books. 

Connor has gotten very into playing with "friends". He asks me all the time to play with friends. Whenever we are out front, he wants to play with the neighbor kids and doesn't understand why they can't play when they aren't home. He genuinely loves being around other kids. And he has taken a recent liking to babies. It is pretty cute. It started with my friend's son who is only a few months younger than Isla. He wanted to stand there and hug him. Then, my other friend just had a baby a few weeks ago and he is very interested in her. It really is cute...and shows that he does indeed have a softer side! 

Within the past few weeks, Connor has started to experience growing pains for the first time. It makes me sad to see him cry over his legs hurting. He wants us to rub and kiss his legs when they are hurting. I have a feeling he is going to shoot up this summer. 

Sleep wise, Connor still ends up in our bed every night. He is getting better about going to sleep in his own room, but always seems to wake up in the middle of the night and come to our bed. I am currently in the process of redoing his room and he will be getting a big (twin...yeah, we go big around here) bed soon. I am hoping with all this change, he will love his room so much that he will want to stay in it all night long. 

Probably my favorite change in Connor is he will now say "I love you" without being prompted. And when it happens, no matter what the day has been like, it instantly becomes amazing. 

Connor, I love you more than you know. I get so much joy out of watching you play, reading to you, taking you to get a treat and building legos with you. I know you won't always stay my little boy, but I hope we always have a close relationship, even as it morphs into something completely different than it is today.
