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:

She is precious! Where did you find Honey? I had a Honey when I was a little girl!! 30 years ago...My Mom has saved mine, but it's a bit dirty as you can imagine. I'd love to get one for CE. I hate we're missing the birthday party -- we've had our beach trip planned since May:( Hope it's a wonderful birthday!!
