A funny thing about Clark, that I don't want to forget...

Clark always used to say, 'yeah yeah'.
When he wanted a treat, when he was answering a question, when I was finally able to decode whatever mumble-jumble of words he was trying to get me to understand.  Sometimes he would get so excited about it, "Yeah Yeah Mahi, Yeah Yeah!" in his excited high pitched voice.
(For example)
Clark, do you want to take a bath?
"Yeah, yeah!"
Do you want a cookie? 
"Yeah, yeah!"
Oh, did you mean you wanted to go down the slide?
It was so cute, and it was one of my favorite things about him.

Now, he says "okay" in reply to everything, except it sounds like "hey-hey".
Clark, do you want to go outside?
Would you like a bagel and cream cheese for breakfast? (His favorite.)
Clark, do you love your cousin so much?
I don't know what changed, he has only started saying it these past couple weeks.  I think it is so funny.
I do say 'okay' a lot, especially when I don't want to do something, so maybe he got it from me.
I love my Big Tuna!  As challenging as he can be sometimes (a lot of the time) he really is so loving and fun to be around.  
I don't know what I would ever do without him.

I love how you journal everything about your kids, I need to do that more. You are a great example of that! I hope to meet them someday. Boston would eat Clark alive, they would have sooooooooooo much fun together! We got to play together, it's only fair our kids do the same. Please let me know if you ever come to AZ again. I'll do the same in WA-right? You still moving? Good luck with that. Happy 4th. tell Jason thanks for serving.
