Dear Clark (aka Clarky),
On Saturday, it was your birthday! And Ti-ti didn’t write you blog for your birthday…second child problems! But, my special Monday spot is dedicated to you!
Clarky it’s your second birthday but for some reason you feel so much older. You have an old soul. You are this quiet, emotional and sensitive kid. You are very head strong and know exactly what you like.
Your smile is one that get’s me every time I see it! Your dimples are absolutely adorable! You have this cute gap in your teeth that adds to how adorable your smile is! It is so infectious and I will do anything to try and make you smile. Although, it doesn’t take much! You smile as soon as you walk into a room!
You are a “guys guy”! Tractors, dirt, cars and playing rough! You love it all! When you come into the office you go straight to Grandpa! You were always a grandpa’s boy! The winter has been hard on you! You stand at the door whining to get out! You really aren’t a fan of staying indoors or watching t.v! You want to go outside and explore and find someone on the farm to take you on a tractor!
You are very big for your size! When you were on the Disney cruise this winter the cast couldn’t believe that you weren’t even 2 yet! You were late to walk and you hardly even talk. We call you Beaker (like off of the Muppets) because you hum your words instead of opening your mouth and saying them! But for some reason we know exactly what you are saying! You always know that you are in the room when we get the notorious Clark “Hellllo”!
Good luck getting any pictures of you Clark! You are too busy exploring to bother! You are very independent! You have this funny way of trying to figure out how everything works! Your Daddy is the same way. Instead of just playing with a toy, you want to take it apart and put it back together!
Ti-ti and Uncle Ryan are very lucky to be called your Godparents. It means a lot to us to have this special title with you!
It’s been amazing watching you grow for another year little buddy! Your gentle and old soul reminds me of your great Grandpa Hamilton sometimes. I know he would have adored showing you around the farm.
I think it’s going to be a great year ahead Clarky as you become a big brother in July. I am very much looking forward to hearing what your voice is really like! You love being outside on the farm and I so look forward to watching you explore this coming year. I hope that the year ahead is full of giggles and grins!
Happy Birthday Clarky!
Ti-ti & Uncle Ryan
