Connor turned 16 months old on July 2nd. He's learned a lot this month, and it's amazing to watch him develop. Just last week he learned where his belly button is, his nose and his ears. If you ask him to point to his nose, he'll point at it (and sometimes stick his finger in it), and he can also point to other people's noses. He's very interested in belly buttons and if you ask to see his, he'll pull his shirt up to show you. He also is very curious about other people's belly buttons and he likes to pull up shirts and will stick his finger in any belly button he finds.
Here's Connor pointing at Andrea's nose:

Yesterday Connor had a heck of a time in a baby pool that Grandpa Garry and Grammy Genie got for him. He loves water, but unfortunately our pool gets deep (for a baby) as soon as you go down a couple steps. Connor is very independent and very confident that he could swim just fine if we'd let him. He doesn't like when we stop him from jumping down the steps, so it's a constant fight with him when we're at the pool. The little kiddie pool was perfect for him. Not only was it shallow enough that Mommy and Daddy could relax, it also had a sprayer on it that would squirt water. It was probably the most fun Connor's ever had with water.
I think he likes it:
Connor also loves playing with his reflection. I don't think it's computed yet that it's him, so every time he sees his reflection he thinks it's a really nice little boy that wants to play with him.
Here's a little video of him playing in the mirror at home:
