Twenty Months Old

It's 2:14 in the morning and I can't sleep. As I was laying in bed trying to force myself back to sleep, I realized I didn't post Connor's 20 month update yesterday. Ooops! (Did you realize that Connor is 20 months old and I am 20 weeks pregnant?)

Firsts

  • Connor has been saying "Nana" a lot, but my mom never gets to hear it. Generally when I tell him Friday mornings that we're going to "Nana's" house, he'll repeat it. This past Friday, he repeated it several times in the car driving to her house. When we got to the door he even said "Nana!" But when we walked in and I asked him, "Who's that?" obviously referring to Nana, he shut down. I thought for sure he wasn't going to say it in front of her. I asked a second time and he was quiet for a second and then said, "Nana!" My mom FINALLY got to hear her name for the first time!!
New Words
  • Connor is talking a lot now. It's still hard to understand, but he repeats a lot of what you say. He also is understanding soo much now. I can give him simple commands, like "lift your foot," and he'll do it.
  • "Blanket" - he pronounces it "babbis." He trying to say, "blankie," but can't get the "k" sound.
  • "Baby" - he'll touch my tummy and say it. He's just copying me. I'm positive he has no idea that there really are babies in Mama's belly.
  • "Socks"...this word is only second to his FAVORITE word: "Shoe!"
New Signs
  • We're still working on thank you. When I sign "thank you," he signs "please," back to me.
Funny Stories
  • We've resorted to hillarious undertakings to get Connor's diapers and clothes to stay on. So far we've tried duct tape, double diapers (one facing forward, with one on top facing backwards), and double layering the onesies. I am pretty sure he is ready to be potty trained, but I am concerned about not being able to be home to do it. Additionally everyone I talk to with more than one kid, says that they revert back to "pre-potty training" days once a new baby comes. I'm thinking we can try in May/June. That will give us a few months before the babies arrive to get a headstart. If he reverts, we won't have invested too much time...and we'll still have the rest of summer.

It's so fun to see what you have to look forward to. All three of these have two boys. I saw the voting bar on the side to guess what you're having, so you are going to let it be a surprise? I look forward to reading your blog!
*oh, and just from the couple of pictures that I saw of your cute little boy, I noticed my boys have all the same outfits! Good taste. ;)haha.
