I LOVE his crib! We've had it for a long time but I finally took a few pictures. I was so proud of myself with this purchase! They wanted a lot for this crib but I got it for half the price by buying the floor model that had a few scratches... you can't even tell!
Kailes "play area"
It's been a few months since we moved into Glenns parents house while they are on their mission and we are FINALLY starting to feel at home now that i've gotten the kids rooms situated! I am getting used to living in a big house and have realized that maybe I don't need a huge house when we go to buy our own... more to clean!

Kaile is 2 years and 4 months old. She didn't walk good until she was probably 14 months, she didn't get her first tooth until after she turned one, but she was an early talker and communicator. By 9 months she would tell me "more" in sign language and by 18 months she could say basically any word. Around 20 months she would say full blown sentences and by 2 she could have a whole conversation with me. Not only does she say a lot, but she says it well. She annunicates (is that a word?) very well. Everyday she says funny things, but today she said RUDE things! I really don't know where she gets some of these things! I guess she just soaks in EVERYTHING that she hears (but I swear, I don't say this one)...
Scenario: We had just finished eating lunch... I was cleaning up the kitchen, Glenn was around, and I offered Kaile a popsicle. She, very happily, accepted and she sat down at the table and I brought over a popsicle, took off the wrapper and asked her what color the popsicle was, she said RED. It indeed was red so I praised her for being the smartest little thing ever and gave her the popsicle. I went back to doing the dishes and she sat and ate her popsicle.
The problem: A few minutes later I noticed that she was rubbing her popsicle on the kitchen table.
Me: "Kaile, please stop making a mess. Just eat the popsicle."
I then went back to doing the dishes.... a minute or so passes and I notice that she was now smashing the popsicle on the table...
Me: "Kaile, mommy said STOP MAKING A MESS. I am not going to give you... (I am then cut off)
Kaile: "I DON'T HAVE TO FREAKING LISTEN TO YOU!"
Me: (trying to contain myself, telling myself Jodi she's only 2! She's only 2... wondering what shes going to be telling me at 16 if this is what she is telling me at 2) "GLENN HANDLE HER!"
Honestly she is such a sweet girl, but today was not a good day!

For the past couple of weeks Koa has been pretty sick off and on. Fever, coughing, runny nose, and last night he gave up quite the scare! At 3am I heard him moving around in his crib so I went to check on him and he was very very pale and cold and panting... like he was having a hard time breathing. I took Koa to Glenn and we decided that we better take him to the ER... he was shaking like he was freezing. My dad came over and him and Glenn gave him a blessing before we took him to the hospital. (thanks dad for waking up at 3am and staying with Kaile). Of course his breathing sounded much better when we got to the hospital but when they took him temperature it was 104.6! WAY TOO HIGH! I had been giving him motrin and tylenol but his fever was out of control! I of course freaked out! They did an RSV swab and it came back negative. Then they did some chest X-rays because his breathing was coarse and the X-rays showed he has a respiratory infection. Basically there is nothing they can do unless it becomes phenomia (ummm okay so I just wait til my kid has phenomia to help him out?!) So they gave him some "extra strong" medicine to get his fever down and we were on our way. We made it home around 7am and our kids were nice enough to sleep in until 11. I hope my little guy gets better soon! I cannot stand to see him suffer!
Thanks to Aunt Beca and Uncle Jaime for playing with Kaile all day today so mommy could take care of Koa! Thanks dad for the late night house call!!

If we are at home this is what Kaile looks like. She always has to have on a princess dress! I love this little girl! She makes my life so fun and she keeps me on my toes! She is sweet, gorgeous, and most of all she is my little BFF! I wish she would stay like this forever!
I know all of my post have been about my kids lately... but they are my life! Hopefully I do something exciting soon!!
