I snapped this picture right after Clark rolled over for the first time. Yay, Clark!

The kids love playing at the park. Swings are their favorite activity, but slides are a close second.

Clark and Mommy taking a quick nursing break in the car while the big kids play at the park:

Action shot! Both of the kids playing, flapping their arms.

Elise let me scoop her hair into three quick pigtails, but she wont sit still long enough to let me make it look nice, with even parts. That's okay. Baby steps. Eventually she'll let me fix her hair.

January 7 and 8

January 7

Elise loved these Elmo jammies:

January 8

Another awkwardly cropped picture because I had to make sure that you couldn't see the foster kids. This was actually a really cute group photo. Elise, Ingrid, and Caleb were all sitting on Elliot's lap while they watched youtube videos of trains. The kids were all fascinated by trains for a while and they liked to watch videos that people filmed of trains going by at railroad crossings.

Clark's too young to care about trains just yet:

Clotilda and Clark:

Elliot took this picture in low light, so Elise has ghost eyes:

January 6

Elise was very excited that she and Clark were both wearing dinosaurs. Those are her dinosaur hands.

New Year's Photo 2012

As you know, I can't post pictures of our foster kids online. It's really too bad, because they're super cute and wonderful. I had to block them out of the family photo that we took on New Year's Day so that I could share Elise and Clark's picture on this blog. Just imagine twice as much baby adorableness.

We've taken a family photo on New Year's Day every year for the past 3 New Years. It's our family tradition. That and we bake cookies together. :)

Clark smiling (kind of):

Elise does a very good job of drinking from a cup now. This was one of her first attempts:

Elise loves yogurt. And this picture should make it obvious why she must eat it with her shirt off.

Hush little baby...

December 29

Elise was going though a messy phase during the end of December.

Clark holding his head up like a big boy during tummy time:

December 27th: Ready for Bed

Clark just before bedtime:

Elise sleeps with anywhere between 2 and 5 stuffed animals every night:

December 26th?

Ugh. Don't know where our December 26th pics are. Trying to document your vacation when you forgot your camera at home is harder than you would think in today's technological age. Or maybe it's just me. Anyway, I'll post them when I find them.

Here's another picture of Clark from Christmas day:

December 25th: Clark's First Christmas!

Clark's first Christmas! YAY!

We still need to get copies of Christmas pictures from this year-- Elliot and I forgot our camera at home when we traveled. The ONLY picture that we had on our phones from Christmas day is the one of Clark posted above. But there are more pictures in existence somewhere, and I will post a picture of Elise and hopefully a better one of Clark as soon as I can.

December 22: Getting Into the Holiday Spirit

Aunt Katie, Clark, and Mommy. Clark looks like a baby doll sitting on the couch next to Caleb's toy monkey.
