Kingsley is 12 months!

We did it!! We survived a whole year! I just can't believe I have had this little guy that long! It has truly been one of the best years of my life, I love my Kingsley more than words. Here are his monthly pictures 0-12months!
 Kingsley's 12 month stats:
23% for height at 29 inches
21% for weight at 20.14 pounds
82% for head circumference at 18.50 inches
This little babe is at such a fun age. He is getting so close to walking. He loves to hold our hands and walk around. He loves to play outside though he refuses to crawl on the grass. He does a bear crawl where he won't let his knee's touch, silly boy :) He loves to ride on any sort of car/vehicle while outdoors. He and I ride around in the golf cart often while Jeremy golfs. He still doesn't know how he feels about most animals but is obsessed with birds and watching them fly around.
I am happy to say I was able to push his morning wake up time back until 8am. He still takes two naps but is slowly dropping the second. Kingsley isn't a great eater. He hates all vegetables and is very inconsistent on how much he will eat. He spits out anything he doesn't like. Hopefully I can get more creative with things to feed him. Right now he likes yogurt, cheese, bananas, oatmeal, rice, noodles, chips, potatoes, turkey and juice.
Kingsley's new trick is being an "Indian". He will put his hand to his mouth and make the indian noises. "owwawawa" It's the cutest thing ever. He still likes to count and copy words we say. Lately he says "ought-oh" the most. Usually when he throws something down. He also says good job, ball, love you, night night as well as other random words.
He also loves to clap if you even mention the word Patty Cake. He is learning so quickly and is so smart! Kingsley loves swimming and playing with balls. He especially loves holding and throwing golf balls.
He is working on cutting his 4th tooth and looks like his 5th & 6th are right behind, which means we are in for some more grumpiness unfortunately. 
Kingsley loves and knows both Grandparents and enjoys spending time at their houses. He is not super friendly to new people but always gives them a shy smile.
 This baby has my whole heart, I just love him so!

Senior Photos

I haven't taken pictures for a while, so I was super excited to take Prezley's Senior pictures. She is such a photogenic person.
Sorry for the picture overload but it was impossible to narrow them down anymore!

Prez Prom 2013

My little sister went to her last Prom last weekend, and I got to grab some shots of her & her date.
I loved this simple aqua dress she borrowed from a friend.
Since my parents were out of town Jer had to help put on her date's flower.
Isn't she just gorgeous!?

Kingsley is 11 months!

 This is just too insane! Baby boy is just a month away from being a year. It is so sad how much I have forgotten already, so I know I will be happy to have these monthly updates to look back on. 
This kid is at such a fun age. He just has the best personality. He is also very tiring because he is all over the place and gets into EVERYTHING!!! I am not the cleanest person anyways, but he is making it so much more difficult as he likes to get out every toy he owns, as well as pulling things out of drawers and the garbage... Kingsley is also fascinated with the toilet.. Gross I know! Any time i leave the door open he scurrys in to try to put his hands in the water  or throw toys in there. Unfortunately last week he threw in Grandma Julie's cell phone to it's watery grave :(
 Kingsley's schedule is still pretty consistent waking up at 7:30 and taking two naps at 10:30 and 3:00. He continues to love eating solids. Unfortunately he already dislikes most vegetables. I try so hard, but he always ends up spitting out whatever form of vegetable I try to give him. So for now the best I can do is feed him the mixed baby food pouches that are half fruit half vegetable. His favorite food so far is spaghetti just like his dad.
 This little guy is getting pretty close to walking. He uses a little toy walker, holds our hands, and shuffles between furniture. He has also gotten pretty good at climbing up on things like our couch. He mostly loves to mall Diesel and lay all over him. Diesel however is not a fan of Kingsley since he pulls on his tail and legs. Hopefully K can learn to "be soft" soon. I lately have been trying to tell King "NO" when he is doing something he shouldn't.. Although he just seems to laugh & do it anyways so I'm not sure it is woking :(
Kingsley definitely knows what he wants and will point and yell at you to help him. He basically throws a fit every morning because he wants Jeremy to hold him instead of getting ready for work. He will throw a fit if he doesn't get what he wants but they don't really last long. A fun thing Kingsley has picked up is counting to ten with me. Now his numbers all sound like two, but it's cute that he says it in rhythm with me. My favorite thing that Kingsley has picked up lately is "dancing". This consists of him pretty much head banging with his mouth wide open, it is pretty hilarious.
