21 Months

Palo turned 21 months today! She is SO big now, and we couldn't be more in love with her!
-Palo is talking A LOT!! She will repeat anything and everything we say. She's getting better at speaking in sentences.
-Many times throughout the day she asks me where her daddy is. And Pappa and Nana.
-She absolutely loves animals...cows, horses, kitty's, dog's, and rooster's are some of her favorites.
-She slept through the night last night...a HUGE step for her.
-Still loves balls. I am always asked to 'catch' and 'throw' the ball with her.
-Loves music. Dances as soon as she hear's it.
-Loves playing with the neighbor kid's.
-Has 14 teeth and 2 more on the way.
-Weighs over 30lbs...low thirty's is our guess.
-She still wears big panties throughout the day. She will tell me when she has to go 'poddy' and will run and get on the toilet. We are still amazed at how well she is doing. It won't be long and she'll be completely potty trained!
-Loves waving to people. When she play's outside, she will always wave and say hi to cars that drive by or kids riding on their bikes. 
-Loves babies. Always wants to pick them up and hold them.
We honestly can't get enough of our Palo! She is so precious to us. We can't believe how fast she is growing up, how smart she is, and how well she is learning! 

Staheli Farm

(October 18)
We decided to join our wonderful neighborhood friends at Staheli Farm's. I knew it would not only be fun to get out with our friends, but letting Palo see all the animals she loves. We had such a good time! It was fun to see the animals, take a ride to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkin's, and we even enjoyed the pleasant smell of cow dump...

Palo and I decided to head to Salt Lake with my family for fall break. Misi was going to be gone so we figured it would be a fun get-away for us. We left Friday afternoon (my mom's birthday!) got to Salt Lake just in time to eat dinner at the Sweet Tomato. The next day we got up early and made our way to Lagoon! We had such a good time with the whole fam. Palo did pretty good, despite getting really tired late afternoon and a couple meltdowns on some rides.
(October 17)
We put Palo on this whale ride as soon as we walked in. She didn't really know what to think.
 This was Palo's favorite ride!! She went on it quite a few times. She kept saying 'horse' and wanted to only ride the horse!

 We had to stop for some scenery pictures...Halloween theme decor everywhere!

 Palo decided to push Jaks on her own.
 The kids, after a long fun day!

Big Girl!

I love Mom moments. Lately our lives have been full of them...
While I was busy doing the dishes, Palo was watching Baby Einstein.
Not too far into her movie Palo wandered into the kitchen to find me with no clothes or diaper on. I asked her to show me where her diaper was and found this...
She pretty much slithered out of them.  Not sure what it is, but Palo doesn't like have her diaper on. A sign? Maybe. I broke down and bought her 'big girl panties' to see if this will help her. She already goes to the bathroom on the big potty quite a bit, so I figured it was worth a try.
She loves them! I don't have her wear them all the time, but when she does she's happy. (check out that belly!) She's had a couple accidents but that's ok, it's still stinkin' cute to see her in them!

Conference weekend.

We had a low key weekend, thanks to Misi being in Canada coaching football, and me not feeling too productive. I did clean out my garage, so I felt pretty good about things. Palo and I went to my parents to watch the Sunday session of Conference. As always, it was extremely uplifting and makes me want to be the best person I can be.
It was a little difficult keeping Palo entertained, but thanks to her uncles she kept busy. We were cracking up at Kallan. He pretty much took over Palo for me. They ended up wandering into my mom's bathroom where Palo got in the bath, clothes and diaper still on, cracking up as Kallan threw toys into the tub. After the bath, uncle Kallan did her hair. Funny.
Palo is also fascinated with my mom's kitty. She picks him up and drags him all over the house. Poor thing takes it pretty well. If we take the kitty away she immediately wraps her arms and says 'hold dis'. At one point Palo had wandered off with the kitty, I didn't think anything of it until she started screaming/crying. We ran into my moms room and found she had thrown the kitty into the un-drained bath water, and was upset because it was crying and couldn't get out of the tub.  Good thing cats can swim, right? Love this life!
 Palo playing in the tub. Only had my camera phone with me again...
