January is half over

January's half over. Ayla's 3rd birthday is next Sunday. I still can't believe it. We're taking her to Incredible Pizza tomorrow for an unofficial birthday party. Mom's holding on to her presents till the 27th, since we'll be seeing her that day anyway. Just the immediate family is going tomorrow. Dinner with Sean's mom, dad, sister and niece the week after. Already working on getting her cake done from Sweet Designs by Mandi for that dinner. No cake tomorrow, and not sure if we'll do any on the 27th. Haven't decided....guess I should.
Dealing with Ayla having accidents in her panties, though I'm not sure they really qualify as accidents, since she does know better. We're working on it....If you ask her why she peed in her panties, you get 'because' as a response. Sigh.
Just updated the Pacific Community Garden Group blog with new guidelines, application and pictures from the past two years. Go check them out. I know we have quite a few non-local readers, but no reason you can't look at the pictures. We'd be thrilled if more local readers joined the PCGG group. You can find a link on the right sidebar, with the picture that says "City of Pacific Community Gardens". You'll also find a link to the Facebook page for Joys and Trials on the left sidebar at the top. Come like us there to keep track of new updates.
Sanatra's getting so big! 6 months old, and loves rocking to music! We'll get him dancing and grooving in know time. He's starting to get the hang of crawling, but still learning.
Finally getting to read "A Memory of Light" in the Wheel of Time series....took long enough. It's been long enough though, I think I need to get all the books and reread them. Same with the books by Christopher Paolini. Haven't even read the last book yet, even though we own it, because it's been so long.
Been having to give Ayla ibuprofen occasionally lately. Seems to be the only thing that puts her in a better mood. She's not teething, as she has all her baby teeth, and it's not time for adult teeth to start knocking those out of the way.
Academy is going well for Sean. I really need to get in to the dentist for this one tooth, because I think it's breaking further....and part of the break is going up under the gums. However with the fees for academy, we can't quite afford to deal with it at this moment. So hope that Sean gets financial aid, that'll make it a lot easier to get this tooth (and other teeth) dealt with.
Dermatology appointment next month, and follow up with eye specialist in April. Can't wait for either. The first, because my scalp is driving me nuts, and the second, because the double vision is back, but we can't afford to buy new lenses again, and insurance won't pay for them until April. Time needs to pass a little quicker, but at the same time, I don't want it to, because that means I'll get another year older that much quicker.

Can't think of anything else. Hope you'll come find us on Facebook. Have a great week. Till next post.
