I'm not sure it's really been a year... but since the calendar says so...
Happy Birthday Baby Clark!
We sure love him! We went to the Dr. that morning for his well check and here are his stats:
We'll just go with big :). He's 90% for weight and 95% for height. Such a cutie.
Oh, and just in case you forgot his baby info:
I also made him this shirt. Well, made is relative... I mean, I cut out a 1 and sewed it on this shirt I already had :). I'm looking forward to him wearing it!
OK, on to the party!
Presents: He didn't know what to do with them at first. Really, I just opened them and he chewed on whatever came out. The girls gave him stuffed animals and the boys each made him something (with a little help).
Here is Clark with the ball Grant made him. He really loves balls!
Talmage made him a blanket! He likes to play peek-a-boo!
There he is!
I'm not a fancy cake lady, and really it's just going to get destroyed so it's hard to think too creatively anyways - hence the circle beach ball cake ;). He didn't know what to do with the candle so all the kids helped blow it out for him.
Then he wouldn't eat the cake. I think his cautious nature is good, but it doesn't make for fun cake pictures ;).
I had to get some of it on my finger so he would try it.
Then he started to dig into the cake ... a little.
Look a hand full!
And that's as good as it got. It's better than Sandra who was afraid of the candle and wouldn't eat the cake, silly girl. I think he was pretty full from the homemade pizza we had for dinner too!

His last bottle.
Cuddling with Daddy.
Clark had a fun night. He really doesn't get the whole birthday thing yet, but it was fun to celebrate and for the kids to be so excited for him! He didn't go to sleep til after 10 pm though. It was either all the cake (which he barely ate) or still adjusting from the shots. Hopefully tonight will be better :).
I'll be doing his 1 year pictures soon and then I'll talk more about how great he is :).
We love you Baby!
