Behind Bars

Clancy is getting used to the new gates we put up between the living room and dining room. So far, not a big fan. One added benefit we discovered is the instant barrier between he and Jocko.

1 year birthday!

With all the celebrating officially over, we finally marked Clancy's first birthday on the 18th of August. He had enough attention by the last picture.

Great trip

We all had a great time with Nana, Papa, Kerri, Avery and Kate. Thanks so much for making the trip to Texas in the hottest month of the year! Can't wait to see you again soon.

NC State

Thanks to David and Barbara for all of Clancy's NC State gear. We're getting ready for football season so maybe some of his Notre Dame stuff will start making an appearance soon.


Clancy's cousin Avery may have been slightly more excited about opening presents than he was. She did a great job helping him open them all and loved playing with him while she was here. She is a great big cousin!

Cool t-shirt

Kaycee Weaver was nice enough to let Clancy borrow the t-shirt her dad gave her when she was a kid: "Need Help? Ask a Strong Marine Pilot"

First birthday cake!

Clancy did pretty well with his first cake. The sugar sent him on a pretty big rush afterwards...he's definitely a fan.

Here is a video of the experience. Clancy, what's that on your face?:

Birthday cakes

Courtney spared no expense (literally!) for the two monkey cakes. Unfortunately, the monkeys themselves weren't edible, but the rest of the cake was delicious.

More with the family

Everyone is excited for the big birthday party...Clancy is one and Todd is thirty!

The Nichols and Mersons are in town!

Clancy and his cousin Kate are only 6 1/2 months apart and destined to be good buddies.

Here is a video of Clancy and mom having a fun time getting dressed:

Random stuff

Thanks west coast Jessups for my favorite toy...Miga! Clancy loves hiding Miga and then "finding" it later on in the day.

Clancy and Jocko playing. We're still learning that Jocko doesn't liked to be grabbed or have his tail pulled. Thankfully, no injuries yet.
