Kendra’s son Hank Jr. hasn’t even turned 1-years-old yet, but he’s already talking, walking, and sharing. That’s impressive!
Kendra Wilkinson is celebrating her first year as a mom and basking in her son’s milestones! Not only does little Hank Jr. — who turns one on December 11 — talk and walk, but he already knows to put others before himself! “When he has a snack, he’ll give you some before he eats,” the E! star, 25 tells Us Magazine. “He cares about you before himself. That makes me so proud.” The former Playboy Playmate is obviously doing something right!
Kendra has been dealing with the stress of living apart from her husband of 18 months, pro footballer Hank Baskett, 28, but seeing her baby boy slowly grow into a young little man makes her days much more easier to handle. ” A few weeks ago, I had a feeling he was going to walk,” Kendra says. “My father-in-law was with me in L.A., but I wanted Hank to be the first to see it. So I said ‘Pop, can you run out and get groceries?’ Then I told Hank to Skype immediately. The baby stood up and took 12 real steps in front of us!” At what age did your kids start walking, HollyMoms?
Now that Hank has his sea legs, he’s becoming interested in the awesome stuff that’s around him, like doors and kitchen cabinets! As any mom knows, Kendra’s life is about to get a lot more complicated with her little man on the move. “There is someone always by his side, but he’s in that exploring stage,” Kendra admits. “I let him go into the cabinets with the pots and pans. He’ll pull them out and start banging them. I don’t care about the noise. I actually love it!”
Baby Hank can say “mama” and “dada,” and will spend Christmas in Minnesota, where he has been living with big Hank, who Kendra says takes him “to playgroup and baby classes.” Instead of bottles and blankets, Hank Jr. will get lots of presents this year! “Last year I was so tired waking up and feeding him every two hours,” Kendra says. “Now, we can have real toys under the tree and really start traditions. I can’t wait!”
