being that clark will be ONE in just a couple short weeks i figured i better post again. i very well may cry on his first birthday. i cannot believe a year has almost flown by, nor that my baby is much more a toddler than baby these days. clark, slow down.

  • sustains himself on blueberries, watermelon, avocados, sausage, chicken, and cheese

  • loves to play ball/bat the ball around like a cat
  • tries and often succeeds using a fork
  • tasted his first chocolate cake on brother's birthday a few days ago

  • still hates getting dressed/undressed
  • still wakes 2-3 times per night
  • waves
  • clicks his tongue at me when he wants to eat or nurse
  • signs "all done" and "more"

  • officially outgrew his infant car seat at nearly 24 pounds, and has been upgraded into a convertible one
  • is still the snuggliest bug
  • was left during waking hours (with grandma) for the first time whilst we snuck out on our first day date since he was born. hurrah!
  • wants to do everything holland does...and so it begins
  • let's you know how he feels if a toy is taken away from him (he puts up a good fight)
