Clark is SIX Months Old!

Clark is Six Months Old!

How old are you?
Six months old (but wearing 9-18 month clothes!)

Do you have any nicknames?
Baby Clark, Clarky, Boo Boo, Hot Shot

What makes you happy?
Blowing raspberries, being tickled, Sophie (things are getting pretty serious), peaches, my bottle, and of course, MARLEY!

What makes you sad?
Dirty diapers, Mommy leaving the room, Being tired

What is your favorite animal?
Sophie. Ever since this teething game decided to drag on and on (no actual teeth yet), and Mom has no great solutions to speed things along, I've added another woman to my life.

What is your favorite thing to eat?
Peaches! Especially now that I know there are Apple and Peach pouches. Marley decided to share her's one day and now I'm hooked!

What is your favorite thing to do?
Being near Marley.  I pretty much roll on my stomach as soon as Mom sets me down so I can have a better view of M.  I've even started to bring my knees under me and move my arms a bit.  Mom's thinking Marley might tempt me to crawl soon.  Ya gotta do what ya gotta do...if M moves, I move!

What is your favorite song?
The Grand Old Duke of Clark (variation of The Grand Old Duke of York)
Oh, the Grand Old Duke of Clark,
He had ten thousand men,
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

For when you're up, you're up,
And when you're down, you're down,
And when you're only halfway up,
You're neither up, nor down.

He marched them to the left,
He marched them to the right,
He marched them all the way around,
Oh what a silly sight!

What is your favorite TV show?
Wallykazam. Marley's been introducing me to all of her friends. Norville is pretty funny.

What are you really good at?
Talking and blowing raspberries.  I babble all day long.  I love talking to Marley on the way to preschool.  Blowing raspberries is my new favorite thing to do.  They sound SO funny. I crack up each time!

What is your favorite movie?
No new movies this month.  But we have been listening to the Curious George Movie Pandora station a lot.  Mom and Marley are teaching me their dance moves.

What is your favorite color?
Blue. Everything is blue!

Who is your best friend?
Mommy. I love Mommy snuggles!

What do you and mom do together?
We play and swim together. We also run errands together while Marley is at school.  I also love being in my high chair while Mom is cooking in the kitchen!

What do you and dad do together?
We watch sports together and play with my toys.  He also gives me my bath each night!

What is your favorite sport?
Swimming.  My legs are so strong.  I've been doing a lot of dry land work to improve my kicks.  I kick all day long.  I don't want to take things too fast so in the big pool I mostly float and relax; I save all of my upper body splashing for the bathtub.

Where is your favorite place to go?
My room! I love going down for a rest.  My face lights up when Mom or Dad takes my in my room, turns on the sound machine, changes my diaper and then puts me in my sleep sack! But my favorite part comes when I see the bottle coming!  We've also been playing in my room a lot lately.  Marley loves to play in my room too.

What is your favorite book?
I love my animal tails book.  It's the perfect book to read and chew on at the same time.  On another note... I've been read a lot of Fancy Nancy books this month.  Marley loves them but I always give Mom a funny look.  I much prefer my board books.

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
Mommy! I love Mommy snuggles before she puts me down at night!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A people person.  I am so smiley and I flirt with all the old ladies at Michael's.  I LOVE facetiming with GaGa while she and Gramps are off on their big adventures.  I've even been known to wake up from my naps RIGHT before GaGa gets to the house so that Mom still has to go get Marley from school but I can have special time with GaGa.  I also love making new friends at the pool and at playgroup!

How has it been SIX months already?!!!  It feels like just yesterday we were impatiently waiting for Clark to arrive.  At the same time, we can't imagine life without him! He is still a happy, easy going baby.  He goes to sleep between 6 and 6:30 most nights and sleeps until sometime between 7 and 7:30 the next morning.  He usually takes a 45-90 minute morning nap with a 2 hour nap midday.  He and Marley continue to love each other so much.  It's the best thing to see.  They love snuggling and playing together.  Marley wants to show and teach him everything and he is soaking it all up! So far she's only teaching him the good things...  This month Clark tried lots of new foods: Oatmeal, Rice Cereal, Apples, Bananas, Peaches, Pears and Pumpkins.  So far so good.  He doesn't love food as much as Marley did/does yet.  He still prefers his bottle...but he loves sitting in his high chair.  He's happy to be at home playing but he is also an angel when we go out to run errands or play at the pool.  We feel so lucky to have two great kids!! Bracing for the next month which will bring Mom's return to work!
