Once again - my mind is blown at how fast time flies. On Sunday, my little boy turned TWO! The day he was born is so clear to me in my head... it seriously feels like just yesterday. I'm not sure if I can adequately describe this little guy. He brings so much joy and happiness into our home. I cannot imagine living life without him. He has won over the hearts of all of his grandparents. He has truly got them wrapped around his little finger. And I have to say, I'm right there with them. Ross always gives me a hard time, because he says I let him off too easy - just because he gives me those looks that melt my heart. It's probably true - but I don't admit it! There aren't words to describe how much I love this kid. He is one of a kind. All I can say is - he's amazing - and he's mine!
I love you, Cole. Happy birthday, big guy.

Santa doesn't get a list from Cole this year. He will be happy with anything - and besides, Santa just "KNOWS" anyway.

I'm not gonna go off about how hard the first day of school always is for me. I think we've all got that down. Let's just say - I cried .... again.
And this post wouldn't be complete without including Mason's school picture this year. I L.O.V.E. it!!
Melts my heart to pieces! What a handsome kid!
I LOVE THESE KIDS!

It was Hal's first time getting a Pedicure. She LOVED it. It's totally her thing. We will definately be going more often - because it just happens to be "my thing" too!!
Hal has had it in her mind for the past year that she wanted to have a "pajama party" for her birthday. So, we invited all her friends and had a pajama party. We made pancakes, painted nails and played games. It turned out fun! These were her invitations: I wanted to take pictures - but it was a little too chaotic! Sorry.
And here is her annual preschool birthday poster!
Our family would not be complete without our Hallie. She is truly a ray of sunshine in our lives. I don't know what I would do without her.
I LOVE YOU, HALLIE GRACE!

NOAH EVANS CLARK
7 lbs 2 oz - 19 inches
My 2 adorable kids - excited as can be - to see their new little brother. Aren't those the 2 cutest faces you've ever seen?
My poor little Cole. Let's just say that he was "less than excited" to see our new arrival. He really had no clue what was coming. He has been my spoiled little baby for 20 months now - and the ultimate center of our attention - until now. Whenever he would come to see us in the hospital he wouldn't even look at me. It was so hard for me. I've never had one of my kids act like that before. I suppose it's because he's so much younger. But it was hard.
However - as you can see - he's warming up and adjusting very quickly. He still doesn't quite understand the term "soft" - but we are learning!
So, all in all we are doing great. Thrilled to finally complete our family of 6! Ask me in a couple of months how I am adjusting. As of right now, I am still recovering from my 4th C-section and welcoming this little one into our family.
Stay tuned! ... There WILL be more.

And of course, what's Christmas without SANTA, right? Well, naturally... Hallie was terrified to sit on Santa's lap herself. I almost didn't get her to do it. But I talked her into doing it if she sat on his lap with Mason at the same time. I tell ya - that girl loves her big brother. If Mason is with her, she'll do anything. So, as she waited in line, Mason held her hand and they made it through. It was so adorable, I just had to get a picture of it.
And together we had success! They made it to his lap. (isn't he the cutest Santa you've ever seen?)
And for Cole's first time on Santa's lap, he did awesome! He couldn't take his eyes off him... but he did great. I was so proud of him!
Anyway... MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! (better late than never, right?)

Ok - so I have been racking my brain trying to figure out where to start with this whole blogging thing - and I came to the conclusion that I've just got to start somewhere - and what better place to start than where I left off, right? Who cares if it's 2 months in the past and totally out of date! So - clear back in December, just before Christmas -
- He ALWAYS has a smile for me. (ALWAYS)
- He is hilarious (and knows it) - seriously... the kid is a comedian!
- He is super smart and learns fast.
- He knows when to be good and when Mommy is going crazy. (which evidently is quite often!)
- He's a flirt.
- He has HUGE blue eyes - that express his every feeling.
- He adores and looks up to his big brother and sister.
- He runs to the door and cries everytime someone leaves without him.
- He will stop whatever he is doing to give me a kiss ANY TIME I ask for one - no matter what!
- He loves to be the center of attention. He's a performer!
I LOVE YOU, COLE!
Don't know what we'd do without ya!
