Dear Connor: Month 26

First things first. We took you to two specialists this month: an allergist and an ear, nose and throat doctor (ENT).

The allergist had his nurses poke your back with things you might be allergic to, like ragweed and pet dander and mold and dust mites. They also poked your arm with egg to check that. Sure enough, you’re allergic to eggs — and you’re mildly allergic to cats, which explains the constant runny nose.

Dear Connor: Month 25

Dear Connor,

I wasn’t sure at first if I’d keep writing you these monthly missives, but you still change so much so fast that I’m afraid I’ll forget something if I stop writing everything down. The last two years are such a blur that sometimes I refer back to my own blog to remember what happened when.

The thing that’s on the forefront of Mommy’s mind right now is your health. You don’t have a scary disease or anything — it’s just all the little, normal illnesses that toddlers get. Since you have a family history of allergies and ear infections, it just makes things more interesting.

Evening with a Fever

Dear Connor: Month 24

Dear Connor,

You’re two years old!

You’re such a big boy, compared to even just a few months ago. Of course, you’re still little — you don’t go potty yet, and you can’t always say exactly what you mean — but there are constant little glimmers of the big boy you’ll grow up to be.
