Yeah for Persayes!!!!!!

Persayes is now potty trained. I can not believe how easy it was with her. I was able to use her cousin Abbey as an example, and she wanted to be a big girl just like her. I am thinking about not putting diapers on her for bed time soon because when she wakes up her diaper is dry. I am so proud of her, but I have to remind my self to take her to the bathroom. I forget she's not wearing diapers when we go out.

Nice day on the Lake

My friends Dallis and Stacy just purchased a new boat last week. We decided to start spring break off right and took the boat on Utah lake. The water was way to cold to get into, but it was still fun to drive around. I am so excited to go wake-boarding and try surfing (with this boat you can surf behind it with out holding onto a rope) this summer. I forgot to bring a camera with me so here is a pic from my phone. It was so gorgeous out there today the water looked like a perfect mirror.

I need to know some people opinion on summer school for me :) My grant only covers two semesters a year and I have already used up one. Do I do summer school and figure out a way to pay for Fall semester, or do I just take the summer off and go back this summer- all opinions wanted and needed :)

I'm Back

I love looking at other peoples blogs. I have always thought how great it is that every one is basically making a journal to look back on. So why the heck have I stopped doing it? I don't know how many people will actually look at this and read it, but I am going to start blogging again about the fun Persayes and I have.
Persayes and I are living with my Mom now. It has been very nice being here with her since I am a single mother who is working and going to school- Oh yeah I finally started college. I am going to school to be a dietitian and I an deciding about going to law school after.
Persayes and I have been having a lot of fun. I can not believe how big my little girl has gotten and how grown up she is. She knows how to get what she wants, but I have been working on not giving into everything she wants. She was doing very well at going to the bathroom on her pink potty, but I think she has lost a little interest. My friend jokingly asked my why you don't put a child's nose in it and spank them like you do a dog, cause you know it works for a dog. I'm thinking about resorting to that one soon. I know I just need to actually work harder with her, but laziness kinda gets in the way.
Persayes also loves her cousins, especially Abbey and Charlie. Most mornings that is the second thing she asks for, the first is to watch Signing Time (shes obsessed.)I am so excited for this summer. I am thinking about getting another pass to Seven Peaks so we can relax in the sun and have a fall back plan if other plans fall through. I will also be doing summer school, probably at night so it doesn't interfere with my tan. Another thing Persayes loves doing is taking pictures with my camera. I caught her setting up her stuffed doggies the other day and snapping pictures of them in different posses.
I just got a new laptop and I do not have all my pictures on it yet so her are some recent photos of Persayes and I.

Garden Starters

This year I am planting my very first garden. Tim and I still do not have the garden area ready, even though my starters are ready. Right now I have a total of 71 starters and I am looking to get a couple of more that I forgot about. I have beans, snap peas, green and orange peppers, romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, cauiflower, broccoli, carrots, onions, eggplants, 3 types of tomatoes, zucchinni, cayenne, watermelon, cantelope, cucumbers and a couple of herbs. I am so excited to see the fruit of my labor :)

I finally did it

Persayes is now 16 months and in the habit of sleeping with Tim and I, being nursed to sleep, and nursing through the night. We love having her in bed with us, but I was ready to have her be more independent. Friday night I put her in her crib to cry herself to sleep. Tim was not supportive of me doing it so between that and Persayes screaming it was a sad night. She only cried for 45 min. before she fell asleep. She did wake up 3 times during the night to nurse and cried for 5 min. once I put her back into bed. I don't want to do too much at once so I am going to start weaning her from nursing during the night after I have her comfy sleeping on her own. Last night when I put her down in her crib she only cried for 15 min. before she feel asleep. It was such a relief to finally do this. I was so worried that she was going to feel abandoned with how old she is, but I think she is doing good. She is just hesitant of her crib now. I can now say my beautiful crib is getting some use out of it.

Going Raw

Last week I did a 3 day juice cleanse. It was a long 3 days but it was nice to get it over with. I have been able to kick my sugar addiction because of it and I am going 75% raw. My goal is to eat breakfast and lunch raw, and eat a healthy dinner. I have a great cook book that I am using and it seems so easy and yummy to do now. I think I am going to gradually introduce Tim and Doug to the food and hope they like it. I'll post some good recipes when i come across them.

Since I have not been that great with posting I decided to post some pictures from the past month:
Every year we go to the festival of lights with Tims family. It was so cold, but worth it to see the look on persayes face.

Christmas eve we went to tims parents house where all 31 grand kids open their christmas p.j's. heres persayes p.j's

christmas day we opened presents with tims brother, Doud, who lives with us. Persayes wasnt very into open them on christmas, but she loved playing with them after.

tim gave me the best gift ever. He made me a nice frame, and gave me a certificate for persayes and I to get some pictures done together to put in the frame
we went to the draper open house with my mom and sister crystal. persayes doesnt look happy in the picture but she looked so cute that day. The temple is so pretty. i have made it a goal this year to go to the temple.

And lastly:
Persayes is finally feeling better. I think it will take acouple of days for the smell of garlic and herbs to leave my house.
