Clark is TEN Months Old!

Clark is TEN Months Old!

How old are you?
Ten months old (but wearing 18-2T month clothes!)

Do you have any nicknames?
Little Guy, Baby Clark, Baby Brother, Clarky

What makes you happy?
When Marley tickles under my chin, apple squeezie pouches, playing chase, cell phones, Santa singing.

What makes you sad?
Falling down or when Marley tries to move me, being left in the pack n play by anyone other than GaGa, when someone leaves my room and expects me to crawl after them (hello--free ride!)

What is your favorite animal?
Any of the rubber animals I can chew on.

What is your favorite thing to eat?
Apple squeezie pouches and nilla wafers.

What is your favorite thing to do?
Explore EVERYTHING. Opening drawers and cabinets; seeing what Marley gets to eat; crawling super fast to get into the bathroom to explore the cool tile floor before Mommy closes the bathroom door.

What is your favorite song?
Jingle Bell Rock--Santa sings this when you squeeze his hand. But really I love all music.  Dancing is one of my favorite things to do.

What is your favorite TV show?
I'm not really into TV; although my favorite is Curious George.

What are you really good at?
Picking things up. I love feeding myself and rarely let anyone else feed me.

What is your favorite movie?
Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer. I love all of the music.

What is your favorite color?
Red--I love all of the Christmas decorations.

Who is your best friend?
Marley. I'm her little shadow.  I want to be right next to her- doing what she's doing and eating what she's eating.

What do you and mom do together?
We organize and play together.  Today she took the dresser out of my room so Marley and I have even more room to play and there are fewer things for me to get into. And I love playing with the kitchen in Marley's room.

What do you and dad do together?
We do bath time. I love the water so much. Really, I just love exploring the bathroom.

What is your favorite sport?
Cross fit--I love crawling, climbing, heave-hoing, pulling, pushing (drawers--not people), etc. I also love to have BIG gulps of water to rehydrate.

Where is your favorite place to go?
The bathroom. I'm not allowed in there by myself so there is so much mystery and intrigue.

What is your favorite book?
All the little books I can hold in my hand. I love being in control of what I'm reading.

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
What Marley, Mommy and Daddy are doing. I have serious #FOMO (fear of missing out).

What do you want to be when you grow up?
An investigator. This month I have really shown Mommy and Daddy how rough and tumble I can be.  I love exploring everything. I'm into everything and won't stop until I get what I'm looking for--access to the bathroom, a cell phone, Marley, etc. I'm a determined little boy and willing to use all of my strength to get what I need. This morning, Mommy was holding Marley's bottom drawer closed with her foot and I tried to open it with one hand. When that didn't work, I tried using two hands. When that didn't work, I planted both my feet wide apart, put both hands on the handle, and leaned all the way back. Unfortunately, that didn't work, so I used my angry voice with Mommy. This month I also got my first set of scrapes--almost a black eye from banging into the play fridge door, lots of bumps and bruises on my knees from crawling SO FAST. Showing Mommy and Daddy how tough I am!

Clark has changed SO much this month.  He's become more toddler and less baby.  Physically, he looks so much older now that more of his hair has come in and he's had a major growth spurt.  Still tall and average weight according to the charts.  Still sleeping like a champ--down at 5:45/6 and sleeps until 7/7:30--occasionally waking up for more food if he's going through a growth spurt. And taking two naps a day.  Food and drink wise he's looking to be just like big sister. He loves the squeezie pouches and wants to always feed himself.  He taught himself how to drink out of Marley's water bottles so out when the starter sippy cups. He's not too into a paci unless he's really teething or falling asleep. He's become so vocal this month. Constantly chatting with us and changing the tone and intonation of his voice depending on how he's feeling.  He' so easy going and lovable.  Snuggling is one of his favorite things to do! He's loving the Christmas decorations and the Christmas music most of all. We love him so much and can't wait to see what this next month brings!
