Clark is TWO Months Old!

Clark is Two Months Old!

How old are you?
Two months old (but wearing 6-9 month clothes!)

Do you have any nicknames?
Baby Clark, Buddy, Clark Bear

What makes you happy?
Being held. Lots and lots of snuggles. Warm baths--especially a warm washcloth. Being tickled. My paci. Marley.

What makes you sad?
Being wet. Being in my rock n play after I wake up. Being naked right before I get in the bath.

What is your favorite animal?
Mr. Bear. I'm starting to hold onto his arms!

What is your favorite thing to eat?
A nice, warm bottle of formula. Preferably as SOON as I start to feel hungry.

What is your favorite thing to do?
Be held--I love cuddles.

What are your favorite songs?
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. and Mr. Sun.  I love watching all the hand motions.

What is your favorite TV show?
Gilmore Girls. Mom is making me re-watch the whole series with her while I drink my bottles.

What are you (starting to get) really good at?
Holding my head up! I do it all the time and like to look at everything! I'm also teasing Mom and Grandma by rolling almost all the way over and hanging out there for awhile.  Mommy would really like to see some of my milestones while she's on maternity leave but she says it's too early for me to roll over!

What is your favorite movie?
Kid Songs! Marley has been singing and dancing all month.

What is your favorite color?
Blue. Grandma says it's my color.

Who is your best friend?
Grandma. We spent lots of time together this month while everyone was sick.

What do you and mom do together?
We snuggle in the nursery while we listen to the rain fall...and watch Gilmore Girls...

What do you and dad do together?
Daddy rocks me to sleep. He's the master swaddler!

What is your favorite sport?
Surfing.  During tummy time, I move my arms and legs like I'm paddling in the ocean.  Mom says there are sharks in the ocean.

Where is your favorite place to go?
Grandma and Grandpa's house.  When Marley and Daddy had the stomach flu, I spent the week with Grandma, Grandpa, Kato and Mango. Grandma thought it was cute to try and set me down. But I knew there were plenty of capable arms to hold me all week. 

What is your favorite book?
Dr. Seuss' ABC.  As soon as I hear it, I smile! It must be because Mommy and Daddy read it to Marley so many times while I was in Mommy's tummy!

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
Being held. I love to fall asleep in someone's arms. But somehow when I wake up in the morning, I'm in the rock n play. I'm going to have to talk to Mom and Dad about this.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
An Airbnb employee.  Much to Mommy's dismay, I had to spend my first week away from home. I was a trooper and loved exploring Grandma and Grandpa's house.  I slept great in the play room, took a bath in Grandma's baby tub, and they had no problem meeting my dietary requests! Mommy says I'm not allowed to ever leave home again, so we'll see when this career is really able to take off.

Month two went by too quickly.  It was a tough month for us with colds, the stomach flu, and an allergic reaction.  Thankfully, Clark was only hit with a cold.  But it was stressful to experience all of those things with a newborn in the house! Clark continues to be an easy going baby.  He loves to snuggle and is a trooper soaking up all of the love from his sister.  He has started to sleep through the night a few nights a week or he has one wake up.  We are so thankful for his sleeping habits!  We've had lots of rain this month and can't wait for warmer weather so we can start taking more walks.  We can't imagine life without little Clark and wish he would stop growing up so fast!
