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.

Shes so big

Tonight I was looking through pictures of Persayes when she was a tiny baby. I can not believe how big she has gotten. She is such a fun little girl now. She has such a fun personality, she loves doing her sign language, doing a corney laugh so we will laugh at her, and waiting on the stairs so we will chase her up. I love my baby girl so much.

Persayes just a couple of hours old. so tiny

My poor little girl.

My poor baby girl has been sick the past two days. of course that means no sleep for mommy or daddy. she has had a runny nose, cough, and feeling just plain horrible. I can not wait for this inversion to leave so i can have my happy girl back again.

Thanks DAD

For Christmas my Dad gave all his kids a flip camcorder. It is the easiest thing to use and it makes it so easy to upload video to the web. I totally recommend it.

She CAN Walk

Persayes has walked like a pro while we are holding her hand forever, she has just been too scared to do it herself. Out of the blue tonight she started walking like she has been doing it forever. it was so fun to see how excited she would get.
