Willow Turns 1

Has it already been 12 months since Willow Balka was born? The 10th Bates grandchild just turned one year old. Happy birthday, Willow!

In true Bates fashion, Josie and Kelton did a first birthday photo shoot with photographer Taryn Yager. Isn't this snapshot just adorable?

  2. I don't care for this picture. Willow is not shown in "her best light" in this photo.
    Mom and Dad needed to put better-fitting flip-flops on her. Willow's little toes are desperately trying to hang on to them.
    I'm looking forward to seeing a better picture of this 1 year old.

    2. Willow looks amazing. And her flip flops fit her. Stop being rude to these amazing parents just because you don’t like their daughters outfit. Willow is beautiful no matter what the outfit, however, this outfit is amazing!

    5. I love the picture! It shows her personality.

      Also "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".

    1. You're right! I always saw Kelton in her face until this picture. I just rewatched the episode with her gender reveal and the emotional response to the announcement of her middle name being after Kelton's mother. I hope Willow is bringing much joy to his family.
