Being twins, Connor & Merasia don't always get "one on one" time with either me or hubs. So, I figure it only fitting to dedicate an entire post to each of them, separately.
Here's to Connor! ♥
I wanted to write you this letter, simply for you. Not for you and your sister, but just YOU. Because, though you are twins, you are also individuals. Separate, special little people!
You are the oldest, but you have definitely taken your time in growing and developing. Though you rolled over really early, at 2 months old, and started sleeping through the night every night at 5 months, but those were the only thing you were advanced on. Well, that and teething. :-)
You cut your first two teeth at 6 or 7 months, much earlier than your sister!
But, everything else, she did before you; Sitting up, creeping, crawling, "talking," pulling up, standing alone, and now, almost walking.
Lately, however, we have seen a huge change in you and your development. You get up on your hands and knees and almost crawl! You started pulling up to your knees a few weeks ago, and then would get frustrated when you couldn't stand all the way up or get back down. Shortly after that, you started getting to your feet at least once a day. We got more and more excited. Sometimes you would even fall down, but land smack on your butt and stay sitting there instead of fall over! That excited us even further!
Now, you are pulling up to stand whenever, wherever, on WHATEVER! You still don't get from a laying down position to a sitting position, but will sit up if put there. You still creep to get where you gotta go, but that's okay. It seems that you have your own pace at doing things, and that's fine.
We were so worried about you for a few months. We thought you were behind, despite our best efforts to support you in each new development with each passing month. Now, however, we see that we had nothing to worry about and you growing and developing just fine.
We couldn't be more relieved and so very proud of you, buddy.
We love you so much and thank God every day that He blessed us with you and your sister.
While we don't expect you to walk or speak your first "real" word anytime soon, we look forward to what you have in store for us for the coming months and years, and can't wait to see you grow and develop even more!
At your own pace, of course.
Mommy & Daddy
