Clark is THREE Months Old!

Clark is Three Months Old!

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

Do you have any nicknames?
Clark bear, Baby Clark, Peanut, Clarky

What makes you happy?
Soft, cuddly things. Marley. My paci. My swing. Bath time.

What makes you sad?
Being wet or very hot! I've also mastered the fake cry and the one final cry to let Mom know I'm not too happy about any given situation.

What is your favorite animal?
Mr. Monkey. He gives the best kisses and tickles.

What is your favorite thing to eat?
Formula! Although Marley has been trying to share her waffles with me and they look pretty delicious.

What is your favorite thing to do?
Look at myself in the mirror.  I am VERY handsome.

What are your favorite songs?
Mr. Sun, I'm a Little Teapot and Old MacDonald.

What is your favorite TV show?
Clifford the Big Red Dog. He's not as loud as Kato and Mango; he seems like a great friend!

What are you (starting to get) really good at?
Crawling and Talking! During tummy time I pull my knees up to my chest and push my whole body forward.  And I love talking to everyone.  I'm quite the flirt.

What is your favorite movie?
Mickey's Christmas Sing a Long. Mom and Marley seem to know a lot of the songs and have some pretty sweet dance moves to go along with them.

What is your favorite color?
Blue. Mom says it's my best color and the color of my eyes!

Who is your best friend?
Marley. I love her so much! She loves pretending to be a monster and says "One, Two, Boo!" but I'm not scared. She also plays peek a boo with me and sticks my paci in my mouth.  She really wants Mom to let her hold me.  She's the best big sister!!

What do you and mom do together?
We go out.  This month I've been to a board meeting, visited cheer tryouts and been shopping!  She's my favorite grown up right now.  I had one week this month where I cried each time she left the room.

What do you and dad do together?
Watch soccer and Cars together.  I've been wearing my Arsenal onesies and I love watching Lightning McQueen race around the track.

What is your favorite sport?
Break dancing. Most mornings I wake up perpendicular to the way I was set down in my crib.  I've been practicing my moves late at night.  Once I'm more confident with my skills I'll start showing them off in the daylight.

Where is your favorite place to go?
The swing! I love to snuggle my owl blankie and fall asleep to the motion.

What is your favorite book?
The Adventures of Taxi Dog.  This is another book I heard a lot while I was in Mommy's tummy.  It's a very sweet story and I love dogs!

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
Food.  I spend a lot of time trying to eat my hands these days.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A boxer.  As I said before, eating my hands is kind of my thing right now.  I love chewing on things and always have my hands up like I'm about to fight.  Mommy has made it very clear that I am not allowed to hit and that she would prefer that I keep my paci in my mouth!

We're having a hard time believing Clark is already 3 months old! He's still an easy going baby and is now sleeping through the night consistently! He loves a dream feed if Grant is up late working.  He eats like a champ and is fully immersed in the pre-teething phase.  I anticipate that he will be an early teether like his big sister!  He is growing so fast and it seems like every other day I have to take more clothes out of his dresser because they are too small.  This month we celebrated his baptism at St. Clement's Episcopal Church and had a luncheon back at our house.  We got the pack n play out so he can have a safe space to sprawl out without big sister jumping in and wanting to play.  He tried out the outside swing at Grandma and Grandpa's house and even dipped his toes in the water table.  Clark absolutely loves Marley and it is so special to watch their relationship develop.  The love is totally mutual.  She asks for him all the time and he always gets the biggest smile on his face when he hears her voices and sees her.  She sings him songs and wants to snuggle him whenever she can.  We can't wait to watch their relationship continue to grow!  Clark definitely feels like a baby not a newborn anymore.  We survived month three with only some allergies and one bout of the stomach flu for Mom.  Hoping month four brings lots of healthy vibes and spring weather!
