Happy Father's Day!

I cannot express how blessed I am to have such AMAZING men in my life Truly, truly BLESSED. My husband Misi is incredible. He has the most sweet spirit, and amazing personality. He is extremely patient, especially with me. He has SO many talents, has a good heart, works hard at everything, takes care of Palo and I, and has always been an example to me. Misi is always positive. He can take a bad situation and always find something good from it. I can always count on him to make me laugh or put a smile on my face. I don't know what I would do without him. I love him SO much and couldn't be happier that he is the father of my children! Love you! Happy Father's Day.

My dad has always been there for me. I'm always going to him for advice! He's on of the most honest, hard working men I've ever met. He is always putting his family first, and making sure our needs are met. He has been a huge support in my life and someone I wouldn't be able to live without! He loves his family, is very funny and likes to joke around, and especially loves when we're all together having fun!  My dad is also a big example to me. I love you lots dad! Thanks for everything!!

A Little Up-date

Palo is a couple days shy of turning 17 months! She has definitely grown up SO much this past little while that I thought I should jot it down before I forget! She has also been teething this past week (top molars are coming in) so we've been a bit cranky around here lately. Thankfully it doesn't last long! Here are a few of her favorite signs. She's signs for a lot of things now, but these are the most used:
-Eat, water, please, thank you, more, baby, done, and ball.
Words she says:
-Mom, dad, nanna, pappa, ball, Palo, thank you, no, don't, apple, wa wa(for water) name a few.
Lately she has loved looking at pictures of herself. She'll bring us our phones or point the computer and say, 'Palo, Palo' wanting us to show her herself. She still a dancer. She loves spending time outside and swimming. She has a full on sprint, will do push-ups, sit-ups, and now does burpee's hmm...She will catch a football and throw it back. She loves her dolly and carries it everywhere. Palo also loves playing with her dishes and will bring us food to eat (pretend of course). She is such a talker and will mumble just about anything she can...especially when talking on the phone! Books have become a lot more interesting and we end up reading brown bear and Alice the Fairy over and over again. Her feet keep growing, too...she's already to a size 7 in toddlers.
What a JOY Palo is to us. There is never a dull moment and I couldn't be more proud to be her mamma!!

This picture you can't really tell, but she took a bite out of some play dough and it's stuck in her teeth.

Palo climbing on my dresser...she got a hold of my gum.

Pool Time

(June 5)
This is what we did after pool time... had a bubble bath!

Thank goodness Palo's a water baby! Sure makes is easy for me. Palo will now jump off the side of the pool, blow bubbles in the water, and kick her feet!
We have a hard time getting her out :)

Memorial Day Weekend

(May 28-31)
We had a fun and busy weekend! Friday and Saturday were filled with hanging out with the family and swimming! Sunday, Wes and Tiff blessed their baby boy, Jakston. It was a very neat blessing and we just love the little guy to death! Tiff's brother Jared also had his homecoming, and what an amazing young man he is! His talk was so inspiring-I was in tears the entire time! We had a wonderful lunch/dinner and the Miller's after the blessing and the food was VERY good! Monday Misi had to work, so Palo and I headed over to my moms for more swimming and lounging. We ended up having a BBQ later on that night! (pictures coming)

Yesterday (June 2) we ended up taking Palo into the doctor. She had a fever over 100, and her breathing was rapid, runny nose, and a nasty cough. The doctor informed us her body was beginning to develop Pneumonia. Yikes! Thank goodness for anti-biotics and our nebulizer. I felt very lucky that we decided to take her in immediately this time, rather then wait and let the condition become worse. Today Palo is feeling much better. Still breathing hard and a slight fever. She woke up around 130 last night, flew out of bed and started playing with her toys and wanting to read books! I was so grateful she was beginning to feel better...until 4:00 rolled around and I still couldn't get her to sleep! :) Good thing we love her so dang much!
