It has been a while since I posted last so I thought I would do a quick update.

We spent Thanksgiving with our neighbors, The Lights. Emily is a great cook so she was in charge of the turkey. It was fun to spend some time with friends. The best part was that they live next door, so we just had to stumble home at the end of the night with full bellies... YUM!

Keller got into her basket of toys for when kids come over. He didn't mind that all he found was a tiara and a necklace... he would make a pretty princess.

Here are just a few pics from the last month.

Zach treats Keller like he is a puppy.

Keller loves the bath and we love trying new hairstyles.

This is how I found Keller one morning before he woke up.

Morning face!!

Tomorrow morning we are off to Boise. We are excited to see all of our family. It has been a while since they have seen Keller. We are looking forward to a great Christmas. Zach keeps talking about all the sugar cookies that he is going to eat. We will both be 10 lbs heavier when we return to Provo.
We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!



If I had one word to describe Keller it would be mischievous. A few other descriptions include: spoiled, adorable, innocent, happy, playful, quick, smart, loving, adventurous, dare devil. Just to name a few.

This post has been long over due, sorry to you all. I have been so caught up with... well I don't really know where the time has gone. Keller is 8 months old already! His favorite word is DADA. I thought for sure it would be MAMA, but Zach has won this round. He gets into everything. We don't even try to make barricades anymore, he always get through them. And I know he knows what he is doing, because he looks back at me with a smirk on his face.
We are spending Thanksgiving here with some of our good friends. I will be sure to post pictures of the event. We are excited to go back to Boise for Christmas. It has been a while since Keller has seen his Grandparents (Bolts and Glynns). It is always sure to be an adventure when we return home. Zach, as always, is most excited about the sugar cookies.
Here are a few pics from late October/November.

Keller getting ready for bed with his hat on.

Keller playing on our bed in his Halloween costume. He loves shaking his hips (we call him Swayze). Sometimes it looks more like air humping...

My little giraffe.

Keller's hat made especially for him from the Provo Saturday Market.

All bundled up for a nice cold walk.

One of many mischievous things that I have caught Keller doing on camera.

When he notices me he makes a run straight at me, like he is playing chicken or something. Or maybe coming to apologize. (oh, but it was just way too fun mom!)

eating the cabinet (a daily occurrence)

making a mess, as you can see in the background.

I must have caught him doing something. He is so fast, the second he sees me he comes straight for the camera....

and this is what I end up with.


Keller wants...

... to walk

... to play

... to jump

... to explore

... to lounge

... to be with friends

... to get out of here

... and here

... to read this book

... and read it again

... to see this fascinating toy

... and this one

... to eat like a big boy

... to eat this too

... this tube of something

... to make a break for it!

And finally, Keller wants to grow up way too fast!


6 months old (a while ago)

I know this is late, but Keller turned 6 months old last Saturday the 19th. He is growing up so fast.

6 month measurements:
17.5 lbs (50%)
27in long (70.09%)
17.75in head circ. (83.8%) he must have a big brain in there!

These days i'm lucky to get a minute where I am not running around after him. A few of his accomplishments include: 5 teeth (almost 6), crawling (actual crawling, not just army scooting anymore), sleeping through the night (every mom's dream, from 8pm to 6am, eats, and then goes back to sleep until 8am), pulling himself up on anything and everything (bookshelves, footrests, chairs, our bed), we already had to put his crib mattress in the lowest position because he would pull himself up and greet us in the mornings leaning over the crib rail... yikes! I have been baby proofing as we go. As a new mom I never imagined the types of things that he could get in to. He is spoiled... yes spoiled. I have found out you can spoil a newborn! He is everything that we could have hoped for and more. He has such a little personality. Keller wants to do everything we do, eat everything we eat, and walk just the way we walk.


Keller got some new rings and Zach, as always, had more fun with them. Sometimes I think we buy the toys for Zach. Keller is rocking back and forth on hands and knees. He army crawls all over the house, because he cannot figure out how to move his legs and arms at the same time. It's coming though.

They actually pinch the nose and eyebrow quite a bit.

Just get Keller a wig and he looks like my little girl!
