The potty training has begun!

A girl in my ward is potty training her 14 month old boy, so I thought maybe my 22 month old could get started too, so we tried letting him sit on the toilet a couple of times, but he hated it.

Then, on Saturday, I bought him a Sesame Street potty seat. I guess he loves seeing all his Sesame Street friends while he sits on there, because it sure did the trick. Last night he did a tiny poo-poo and he peed in the toilet twice today so far!

He also sat on the toilet 3 or 4 times without going potty just because he loves sitting on there so much. Haha.

Our prize

Evan and I went on a date to the nickel arcade a few weeks ago. It was pretty fun and I even got a sore arm from this one game where you throw balls at a big screen. Kinda embarrassing.

Anyway, we got this little dinosaur for Calvin with our tickets and Calvin really likes it. So does Evan. And he is really proud that we won it with our tickets.

Calvin loves his stuffed animals

Calvin's favorite toys these days are his stuffed animals. He lives to hug them and kiss them and pretend that they can walk and bring them to to grocery store. And invite them to family home evening. It is pretty cute. He even shares his blankies with them.And when he takes a nap or goes to bed, he hugs and kisses each one and puts them to bed in their closet.

Thank you Evan

As we were laying in bed last night Evan was telling me about a conversation he had with some guys down in the lab. He told them that women look funny when they are really pregnant. As a previously pregnant person, I thought maybe he shouldn't be telling me this, but he told me that of course I didn't look funny when I was pregnant. Only other people do.

A few minutes later he said, "So have you been doing a lot of sit-ups lately so you don't show as early when you get pregnant?"

I responded, "Well... yes. But it isn't working."

To which he replied, "Why? Because you are already showing and you aren't even pregnant?"

And then I punched his arm.

Stewart Falls

Evan and I went on a date to Stewart Falls a little while ago. It was very pretty and we were fast! It is supposed to take two hours and it only took us an hour and a half. Nice. But these pictures don't so it justice at all. I am certainly going to miss living so close to these mountains when we leave Provo. They are beautiful!

Skirt and diaper cover

I made these for a friend's baby shower the other day. I loved them so much that I also made a matching set for a little girl that we may or may not have some day (or for another baby shower). Here is the diaper cover tutorial and pattern.
Elmo is a great model.

Fork? Or is it...

Calvin says a lot of words that are kinda funny. Here is one of them.

Changing diapers

A few weeks ago in the middle of Sacrament meeting, Calvin took the diaper clutch out of the diaper bag, spread out the changing pad, and changed his toy lion's diaper. I thought it was hilarious. Since then, he has been doing lots of diaper changing. Check it out:

He also changes Evan's.

Our dumb computer

Remember this post? How we bought a brand new Dell computer less than a year and a half ago?

Well, our warranty ran out in April and just after that, our DVD player stopped working. Then a few weeks ago the battery stopped working well. Then when Evan was in Connecticut and was trying to put some finishing touches on his presentation for a job interview, the power cord stopped working. He got it to work again the next day and it has been working off and on for the past two weeks, but yesterday it stopped working, probably for good.

I'm really mad. My Toshiba still works and it is more than 7 years old. I took that thing to school with me all the time. And probably dropped it a bunch of times. And it still works! The Dell is just lame. I don't want to buy a new battery, power cord, and DVD player, but I don't want to buy a new computer either.

The really dumb part is Dell won't even let me email them since I didn't buy their support package. I have to call them on the phone. Which I don't want to do because I'm pretty sure they will just tell me I can buy all those parts from them for about half as much as it cost to buy the computer.

Eh. So annoyed. Anyone have experience getting them to fix stuff when it isn't under warranty?
