Our little monkey is growing up! We can't believe that next month she'll be TWO years old.
This is definitely a bitter-sweet moment. Lately she has been talking SO much. 
We are always shocked when she says something
we have never heard before. 
Lately when she gets upset (or mostly just all the time now) she well tell us to 'Stop it!' On Sunday she kept telling me to 'stop it' and I had warned her she would be taken to her 
room if she kept choosing to tell me that. And she did.
So I quietly took her to her room, as I always do, and proceeded to tell her that she
could come out with she chose to stop telling mommy to stop it. (Note: whenever I send her to her room I usually tell her she can come out when she's ready to be happy. Please know I don't have to put her in her room very often.)
So a couple minutes later Palo comes out of her room to find me. She taps my leg and says
"Yes, Palo."`
"I'm Happy!"
Melted me. I just love this girl.
A few other things, she can count to ten, and with our help say all her Abc's. She can do 1, 2, 3 on her own, stumbles through 4, 5, but has 6, 7. 8. 9. 10 down pretty well!
Palo sure makes her mommy and daddy proud!
We had a wonderful thanksgiving this year. We were able to celebrate at my parents house with my dads sister and only a few of her kids were there this time.Misi's parents and brother's were also able to join us! We were just so grateful to be around family. Nobody brought a camera this year to Thanksgiving, so sadly we don't have any pictures!

Here's our little cutie pie all ready to go to grandma's house. She was so excited to have her Dora backpack and couldn't wait to show everyone! I can't believe how fast she's growing up! The pictures just make me smile!
