Where does the time go? Yesterday, when I woke up, I was wondering how in the world July was already here?! All day yesterday, I kept thinking it is unreal that Connor will be turning SIX on his next birthday in a few months. It is crazy and nearly unbelievable. Anywho, I decided to write down a few things about Connor at this age since this is all about memories from our family. 

1. When Connor started eating baby food and for about 2 years after that, he ate everything. Green beans, squash, okra, all kinds of meat and seafood, and any dessert. But lately, it seems as if he has taken on my Mom's diet of being a sugar-a-holic. Of course, Drew and I don't let him eat candy and little debbies all day long, but if he had it his way, that's certainly what he would do. Seriously though, he has become more and more picky. He is still a good eater, but he prefers biscuits, rolls, macaroni and cheese, and potatoes. It is a really good thing that he has his Daddy's metabolism! 

2. For the most part, Connor has always been so well-behaved. But, he is smart and definitely knows how to push our buttons. When he throws a little tantrum lately, it is so hard not to laugh. I know how spoiled we were with having such an easy baby and easy toddler, because he is definitely getting kind of an attitude lately and has to be put back into his place. Even still, he is a pretty good kid and knows when it is time to be good.

3. Some things never change, and he is still obsessed with any and all things construction and job site related. He can't talk enough about cherry pickers, bull dozers, backhoes, tractors, cranes, mini excavators, and all other kinds of equipment. He knows all of the brands, and he loves looking at Tractor  trader magazines. He loves to "work" and his little mind is so creative about things like that. 

4. He counts to 100 so easily and loves spelling family members names and other little words, and it makes my Mommy heart swell up, because I know he is so smart and can't wait to see how well he does with Kindergarten.

5. He plays well with other kids, and he loves being around them! I promise, he will have a sibling, eventually!

6. He loves watching cartoons. He doesn't really watch a lot of tv, but when he does, he is in a trance and completely occupied. Tom & Jerry makes him laugh hysterically and it is the sweetest sound!

7. He is definitely a water baby and would stay at the beach all summer long if he could. While we were at the beach, he kept saying, "Can we stay until August?" -- ha! Maybe one day! 

8. Thankful for this one...but, he no longer gets upset over having to wear polo shirts and khaki shorts. 

9. He hates picking up toys when he has been playing in his room, but he has actually been doing a lot better about it for the past week or so. 

10. I am not sure if there is a more curious child out there, he has at least 20 questions for every subject.

11. Oh yeah, one more thing, he is such a little "womanizer" - he loves the ladies! I am already storing up prayers for my sanity on this one (ha, I am joking!) -- But, seriously, he is such a little flirt and acts so funny when Ashley has friends around or he is trying to show out. He is ALL boy! Thank you, Lord for that! 

Since Connor has been born, every time I pray, I thank the Lord numerous times for such a healthy and precious little boy. We are so blessed and fortunate and never want to take that for granted.

Also, please remember Abigail and her family in your prayers. My heart is so heavy for Amy and Shannon as I can't imagine how they feel. If you read the previous 3 posts from the journal, Amy does a great job of letting everyone know exactly what's going on and why they're needing lots of prayers.
