Michael Phelps

We spent a lot of hours this summer watching the Olympics, especially swimming.  We talked about Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, and all the other Olympians.  We cheered them on and clapped for them and DVR'd every race so we wouldn't have to miss it!  Will talked about Michael Phelps A LOT, but I haven't heard much about him in over a month.  That is, until yesterday, when Will was scrolling through my phone.  He came to this picture and said:  

 "That's Michael Phelps."   

Oh Will, I wish.......Although this 16 year old is pretty cute too!

8 Months

Since I completely skipped over 7 months, I figured I better document Lily at 8 months.  She has changed so much in two short months.  I forget how fast they grow and it makes this Momma SAD!

At EIGHT months Lily can:

  • Crawl all over the place (like on all fours crawl)
  • Sits in the high chair and feeds herself.   
  • Eats big people food.
  • Can almost pull up and stand.  
  • Has two teeth (her two bottom ones are poking through)
  • Has enough hair for bows!  They are adorable. 
  • Got her first brother battle wound (a scratch on her nose from where a picture frame fell on her face....compliments of Will)
  • Loves her walker and travels everywhere in it.  
  • Sleeps 12 + hours a night.  
  • Talks and babbles all the time
  • Loves her momma, Loves her brother, LOVES HER DADDY!!!  (and Pat didn't want a girl.....)
Lily is still the best natured baby I have ever seen.  She is so relaxed and easy going.  We can take her anywhere and she behaves!!!!  This is a new thing for the Clark Family, as her brother was never this way!  He still doesn't sit still.  
Lily we love you and are looking forward to watching you continue to grow!  You are the light of our lives!  We know God has great things in store for you!
