Oh my word! My baby is 1! This last year went by so fast, but I always feel that way! :( Keller has brought so much joy to our lives! He is pretty chill, but gets into everything & when he wants something, he wants it right then!!! I have no idea where he gets that from ;P
My other 2 boys looked like babies, but Keller has always looked like a little man. My lil Keller feller.
He's done everything much earlier than the other 2 did & I'm sure it's because he's trying to keep up with his big brothers. Keller adores them & they're completely in love with their baby brother too! It thrills my heart to see how well they all get along & play with each other! He also loves our dog Fred & often tries to hug him & lay beside him.
Keller enjoys reading, but the kiddo LOVES music!! The 1st sound of music & he's dancing & trying to sing! His favorite song right now is the Itsy Bitsy Spider & he even tries to do the movements. PRESH! He'll jabber on at times, but is usually quiet observing everything & taking it all in. Although as soon as you hold up a phone or camera to take his picture he says,"CHEESE!" He's a VERY smart lil boy & can easily figure out how things work.
He looks just like his daddy, but is a COMPLETE momma's boy! Like his daddy he loves to play ball! We have to be careful because even though Keller is small the kid can pack a punch, hit, or slap! Rylan is definitely getting all the torture back he gave Brady when he was younger.
Keller started taking steps at 10 months walking a little bit before crawling again (crawling was much quicker :) ). Right after he turned 1 he began walking everywhere! He also has 7 teeth & loves to brush them!
We had a small family party to celebrate his birthday.
He liked playing in the icing...
but didn't care to eat it.
Here he is hanging out with his Uncle Jon-Jon & Poppa (my husband's youngest brother & dad).
Keller had a lot of fun playing with all of his older cousins & brothers. In fact we all had a good time since we don't get to see each other too often.
Britany came home from college to celebrate & helped him open all his gifts. Though like any 1 year old he enjoyed ripping the paper better than he enjoyed the toys!
He loved all the attention he got!
Keller was upset my daddy shaved his goatee! He kept touching his chin & crying & tried to get away LOL! By Christmas my daddy grew it back & Keller was all smiles again :)
