Lights, Camera, Action Hank!
While posing in front of the family's former East Coast home, Little Hank reaches new heights, thanks to a boost from his pro football player dad Hank Baskett III. "It was very important to us to carry on the family tradition," Wilkinson said of naming Hank after his dad, whose name was passed down from his grandfather.
BACK IN ACTION
The party of three is pumped up for a photo shoot to promote Wilkinson's E! reality show, Kendra. So how does her budding TV star cope with fame? "When he was still in my belly, he was always surrounded by so many people and so many noises," she's said. "I think he's just used to it."
While dad Hank was busy training with his former NFL team, the Eagles, Wilkinson and 10-month-old Hank celebrate fall while out in Philadelphia on Oct. 5. "Happy Fall, love, the Basketts" she wrote on her blog.
It's a peeping Hank! The adorable 8-month-old gets an eyeful – and ends up in a blog post – during a shopping trip with mom at Victoria’s Secret in August.
MADE IN THE SHADE
Hank, 7 months, hops on the oversized sunglasses trend in July, sporting some seriously big shades in a home photo. "Every day I feel like I'm seeing him for the first time," she wrote. "He's such a happy baby – so playful, always smiling and giggling."
LET'S GET PHYSICAL
"My lil guy is the best workout partner I've ever had," Wilkinson shared after posting this photo in July. "But somehow he's never sore the next day."
Hank finds a shoulder to lean on in mom during a PEOPLE photo shoot in July. "It's amazing … because we created life and now we get to see all the stages of life," Wilkinson raved at the time. "It's the most … magical thing you could ever go through."
SOME BUNNY TO LOVE
It's not your typical Easter celebration! Wilkinson and 4-month-old Hank take a trip to the Playboy Mansion in April, visiting with her old beau Hugh Hefner, and greeting animals in a petting zoo.
At four months, Hank is already mugging for the cameras during a sweet family shot on April 4. An even more impressive feat? The baby's ability to high-five! "All I hear in [Hank's] room is, 'High-five, high-five! Yeahhh!'" Baskett told PEOPLE of how mom and son bond. "That's all I hear all day long."
LOL SMILEY FACE
What a cute grin! A 3-month-old Hank poses perfectly for mom in March. "Lil Hank has done his fair share of photo shoots so he's pretty much a pro by now," she wrote on her blog. "He's always hamming it up for the camera."
Though baby Hank (here, in sweet repose for a promo shot for Wilkinson's E! reality TV show) has been part of mom's TV world since birth, it hasn't always been easy to get her "curious lil guy" ready for the cameras when he's "squirming and touching everything in sight," she's said.
THE PERFECT PRESENT
Two weeks after Hank's birth he made his Internet debut in a Twit pic posted by mom. "Hope y'all had a great xmas," she wrote. "The best gift i got is in my arms now…how bout u?"
