One of Conner's new favorite things to do is to pull the couch cushions off the couch and jump on them. I snapped a few photos of him doing it the other day and I love them!

Raise The Roof

Chris teaching Conner how to raise the roof!
I have tried to figure out how to rotate it and I can't sorry!

This is something funny that happened this morning and I thought I would document it!

Chris woke Conner up while I got all of our lunches ready. He changed him and then Conner could hear me in the kitchen so he came running out of our bedroom. Well I had gone to the garage and grabbed a can of coke to put in my purse. Conner had his arms open to give me a hug, saw the coke and said "Oh!" and grabbed the coke instead. He might be addicted like I am!!!

22 Months

Time is flying by! In just a short couple of months we will have a 2 year old! I was watching Conner play the other day and turned to Chris and said, "When did our baby become a boy?" It's sad but at the same time, I love it!

Instagram Photo. I usually try and post pictures of just Conner, but I love this one so much.

At 22 Months Conner:
-Wears size 4 diapers, 2T tops, 18 month-24 month bottoms-it just depends on the brand
-Wears size 7 shoes-we have determined that he has wide feet and needs bigger shoes to fit his wide feet in them.
-Is getting his 2 year old molars. I thought he was sick a couple of weeks ago, but he kept sticking his finger in his mouth and saying ouch. He also had a fever, runny nose and would not eat a lot of food. I haven't seen the molars though, so I might be wrong.
-Has learned a whole bunch of new words and pretty much repeats everything we say. He loves to say please and thank you and loves to ask us "What's this?" He also say Ru-Roh like Scooby Doo!
-He can spot a plane anywhere in the sky, even the tiny ones way up high, and squeals Plane when he sees them!
-Likes to go to bed at 10pm-a night owl like his mom.
-Still drinks 1 bottle at night, but just today drank milk from a cup!
-Still hates water and the swimming pool. I'm not sure if this will ever change.
-Loves to be outside doing anything! He likes to sit on the back porch, he likes to play outside, he likes walks and he likes to follow his dad around the yard as he does yard work.
-Will tell us NO if we are doing something he doesn't like
-Has a little temper. This mostly happened the week he was sick or getting molars, but he learned what time out was quick and it was used frequently that week, but only a couple of times since then.
-Likes to take things that he shouldn't have (like cell phones, remotes) and hide/carry them behind his back, like we can't see them.
-Is a ham! He loves to tease us and make cheesy faces!

4th of July Decorations

I went a little crazy making decorations for the 4th of July this year, but I really love this holiday-celebrating being an American and all of our traditions! And the best thing is, I can leave them up all month because of the 24th of July! To see how I made all of this go to my other blog,!

Still need a white wood star in the blue part of the flag and twine on the candy jars
