speaking wisdom

Here are a few funny things palo has been saying lately. She is ALWAYS saying something funny and I tend to forget to record it so I'm trying to get better. Yes for you Jadon. It's so fun to watch her grow up. Tali is growing up just as much! She's now found her toes, likes to talk, LOVES her sister Palo (most of the time) and is the sweetest baby. We sure can't get enough of our girls :)
  • I was washing Palo in the bath, she came up to me and gave me a hug, while patting my back said, "I know, it's ok."
  • 4/18/2011  We were having family home evening teaching Palo about Nephi and his family. I would ask her simple question's and she would repeat what answer we gave. We told her who Nephi's mom and dad's names were, just as simple as I could make if for a two year old. Her attention was in and out of the conversation, but after a minute she stopped me mid sentence and said "Otay mom, I know."
  • This is what my mom wrote while I was in the hospital with Tali. My mom and dad took care of Palo for us, which she had SUCH a good time at nanna's house! As a side note, when this picture came into my email from Patti, I was downloading it.  Palo said, "what are you doing?" 
    I said, "downloading a picture of Uncle Jadon."
    I had no sooner got Uncle Jadon out of my mouth and she said, "OH!  I LOVE him!!"  It was SO DANG CUTE!!!  Then she said she was tired, so I told her we were going to go home and have a bath and go to bed.  Again, she quickly said, "Oh!  NAP PARTY!!"   I was just cracking up.  We had a "nap party" early in the day when Nana had to take her home so she could nap.   It was a great day with Palo.  Glad Uncle Jadon got to share for a minute in the day!
  • June 16, 2011 I just love my 2 year old. I was playing Words With Friends on the Ipod and was thinking out loud. I blurted out "What am I supposed to do with 5 E's!?" Palo immediately replied, "Bad day mom."
  • July 12, 2011 We were playing a family game of hide-and-seek. It was my turn to hide. Palo was looking for me, and when she looks for you, she will always ask where you are. Palo: "Mom, are you in there? Mom are you in there? Mommy are you in my room? (while opening and closing the closet door to her room) Mom are you in there? Dang it, nobody in there!"
  • August 4, 2011 I was telling Palo is was time to put Tali down for a nap-                                Palo:"Mom, why?!"                                                                                                                          Me: "Because she needs to take a nap."                                                                                       Palo: "Mom, don't put her asleep!"                                                                                                  Me: "Why?"                                                                                                                                    Palo: "Because I love her!"
  • October 13, 2011                                                                                                                            Palo came up to me and told me that she needed some oil for her tummy. "Mom, my tummy hurts"  *pause*   "I been working out, I need some oil on my tummy."
  • October 13, 2011   Palo was talking to my mom on the phone letting her know that we needed a ride to her house. My mom asked her if she took for nap already? "Yeah, I took a big nap. When I woke up my mommy said 'HEY go back to bed!'" 

MM MM Girls!

Funny story...Misi couldn't find his debit card and we looked all over the house looking for it. I saw Palo take it off the table but thought she was taking it to her dad. As we were searching for the card and kept asking Palo where she put daddy's card and she was take us to random places. After a little searching I turned to her and said "Palo, where did you put the money and card? Where did you hide it?" She immediately walked over to the dresser and points under the DVD player......
 Lifts the DVD player up to show us.....
 .....that the card and money were underneath it.
 And then right after she put them in her "pockets" (if she doesn't have pockets everything goes into her underwear)

 We had a good laugh. Here she is saying "HAHAHA dad, I got you!"

Cheesing for the camera!

Tali's first time eating rice cereal! Of course she loved every bit of it!

Our little Fashionista! She loves getting dressed up and if you look closely she put on her own make-up. Whenever I'm getting ready and putting make-up on she always right next to me wanting to put hers on too!

Especially loving the shoes on the wrong feet!

More Girls/Swiss Days

Got Juice? Palo loves her juice!
Modeling her dads MTXE this girl! Palo is our chatter box! Her new favorite thing to say after we say or tell her something is "How, why?" We're getting a lot of "how why's" in our conversations lately!

 Swiss Days
We had another fun Swiss Day's this year. Only 3 of us ran the 5K race (Me, Mykelle, Dad) and Palo, Kam, and Britton rode in the parade!

 You can't tell but she's covered in dirt after a long day of playing.

Beautiful Tali...had to put all these pictures on because she looks so cute in all of them! Tali is very alert now, only laughs for Palo, likes to chew on her tongue, is pretty picky on how she wants to be held, and is starting to grab for things, and still as blue eyes!

Had to take a picture of the girls together, it's Palo's favorite thing to do.
 During General Conference we braided Palo's hair. It was one of the only ways we got her to sit still and watch!
