Connor is 3 Today!

My sweet Connor Boy
You fill my heart with so much joy
You are my angel from God above
You fill my heart with so much love
I have sung this little rhyme since you were a little baby.  I still love to sing it to you and it helps you calm down.  I can't believe how fast these last three years have flown by.  You and your Daddy are the best things that have ever happened to me.  I thank God every day for you both.
Daddy and I dreamed a lot about how our kid(s) would be someday.  We waited a long time to have you.  I can say you are everything and more I ever dreamed of in my mind.  You are bright, inquisitive, quite the comedian, loving, and enthusiastic in everything you do.  You have taught us so much about life and we can't imagine you not in it.
Every day is a blessing because you are in it.  I prayed before you were born that if God gave me a baby he would use that life to honor Him.  I hope and pray that for you Connor.  I know you will do great things!  
I try and enjoy each phase, some are harder than the others.  We work a lot and I hate to be away from you.  In the mornings when you get up all frizzy headed and holding your blankie....I want to remember that.  When I pick you up from school and you run and say "That's my Mommy!" it makes my entire day worth it.  Your Daddy and I are trying to instill Godly values in you and pave a good path for your future....that makes it all worth it.  We don't want you to grow up carrying any of our burdens.    You deserve the best and I hope we can do that for you.
You LOVE your new school and it's right down the street from Mama's work.  Your teachers are so sweet!  I'll bring you cupcakes today and we'll celebrate your precious life!  So excited!
You love Cars and Toy Story.  Airplanes, cars, trains, love.  You also love to pick out your own clothes now, which usually have some crazy cartoon on them.  You like to watch the Bubble Guppies, Jake & the Neverland Pirates, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Your favorite things to eat are macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese, grapes, crackers, fruit pouches, and tonight you said you loved broccoli!  Ha ha!  You also like coffee too (in moderation-a few sips!)
You talk in a baby voice just like I did when I was little.  It cracks me up because your Nana said it was exactly what I used to do.  We are trying to get you to use your big boy voice.
You are doing pretty good using the potty.  We are not quite there yet, but hopefully we just ordered our last bulk supply of Pull-Ups. 
I am rambling....but I get so emotional.  Waaaaah.  Time stand still for just a second would ya?
We took you out to get a clown cone from Baskin Robbins.  My Dad used to take me and Bonnie there for clown cones when we were little.  You REALLY liked the icing! :-)
We also went to Toys R Us and let you pick out some things.  You had the best time on your little shopping spree!  You have lots of little cars to play with now....lots MORE cars.  You are a car loving little boy that is for sure!
Happy Birthday Connor!
We love you!!!!!
(your bday party will be in a couple weeks & you can't wait!)
No, I did not forget about Biggest Loser, that will be up tonight or tomorrow and it will be finale time!!!!!  So get on it girls!
