Almost a Year

I really can't believe that next week is Keely's first birthday; this year has flown by so fast. Everyone tells you how fast it will go by and even if you believe them, you don't really understand. In the past month Keely has practically started running, she doesn't like to be carried anymore since she can walk by herself. Keely also likes to give hugs and kisses, says thank you when you give her something but still isn't a good sleeper and hasn't come close to sleeping all night.

Keely also moved up to the Centipede classroom at daycare a month and half ago and had to to go through many changes. She drinks out of a straw cup now (no more bottles), eats regular food now even though somedays her daily report says she only had peaches for lunch. It has taken awhile but she has slowly adjusted to only taking 1 nap.

Yesterday I signed her up for a gymnastics class that starts July 25th. Next Thursday is her birthday and on Friday we are heading down to Birmingham for her party at Homewood park. This weekend we will have a small party for her to enjoy with her Charlotte friends. We are looking forward to both weekends to spend time with friends and family.

Here are some of my favorite recent pictures:

Hilton Head

We recently went of vacation to Hilton Head for a week. Unfortunately we only had 3 days of nice weather but we still had a great time. Keely loved the beach and the water. She also started walking while we were there. She is growing up so fast. She has started eating regular food now and carries around a doll with her where ever she goes. Here are some recent pictures:

Her fauxhawk hair do

this picture was her first trip to the beach 6 months ago I can't believe she has grown so fast

We have been a little behind lately with posting pictures.

After a long 2 months of ear infections Keely got tubes last week and her ears are doing much better.

Right before surgery
April 11 she was baptized at St. Johns in Charlotte.

She also loves to swing.

Since Keely moved up to her new class at daycare she has been crawling, standing and is close to taking her first steps alone.

Patty Cake

Keely's favorite new thing is to play Patty Cake (We recently found out that it is really Pat A Cake).

Afternoon at the Park

We got a new camera today and decided the park would be a good place to try it out.
It seems to be working great.

January 2009

This month has flown by it seems like it was just Christmas. Keely is almost 6 1/2 months now and growing up fast. She has started pulling herself up to stand.

Here are some other random pictures from this month. Keely has been posing for the camera now which makes taking pictures a lot easier.

Ga Ga and Keely at the Y

Eating her vegetables better than I do.

I was being mean and put her headband on crazy.

Keely has always loved bath time so we decided to take to the pool last Saturday. She really enjoyed her first swim. She even put her face in once.

It also snowed last week and Keely's daycare was closed unfortunately Anil and I still had to go to work so we didn't get to play.

Christmas in Atlanta

The weekend after New Year's we went down to Atlanta to have Christmas again! Keely was feeling much better. We also went to have some family photos made.
