Connor-san turns 4

This year, the baby of our family turned 4. Since Riley's birthday, Connor figured out that themed birthday parties are a thing. So, he insisted on having a Ninja party.

What can I say about Connor? He is as silly as he is loving. He loves to make everyone laugh. He continues to be a social butterfly-- I can't go anywhere in town without being stopped by a little girl pointing at me and saying "Connor's mommy!" He is obsessed with superheroes, TMNT, building with legos and magnets. He is still a momma's boy (I will take that for as long as I can). He loves to dance. He still enjoys soccer and basketball. He loves the snow.

Connor is very open about his feelings. All feelings. He will tell us when he's sad. There is no need to tell us when he's angry-- he makes it known. But above all, I love how much he vocalizes his love for his parents and his sister. His prayer at dinner time is always appreciation for mommy, daddy and Riley. He is very gracious about sharing everything with Riley. He loves to play with and wrestle Daddy. And he loves to kiss every inch of mommy's face. He is truly something special and I will always be thankful that God knew we needed him in our family.
