- Brand-new garage door slides up and down so easily!

How quickly play time can turn violent!

Benny's prize for learning to poop on the potty was a football helmet. That promise was made back in November.
After a while, we pleaded and begged with him to try pooping just ONCE on the potty, and then he could get the helmet.
Well, it finally happened.
It may have just been residue from the bedtime pull-up that dropped in the potty, but darn it if we didn't throw a huge praise party in the bathroom and bring the helmet down from the shelf for him. Max was jumping up and down shouting "Hurrah!" and "It's a miracle!" Now if we could get Benny to do it again....
Max wanted a picture in the bathroom too. This is his pirate gear he got at a classmate's birthday party. He loved being a pirate, until he was adjusting the elastic eye-patch and smacked himself in the eye. And there was great weeping and wailing in the land.

Here he is during awake time. He gave JB and me a fleeting, but big smile today! We keep trying to coax another one out of him. It lights up his whole face.
After awake time he's tuckered out again.
I look like I'm asleep in the picture. I was trying to look like I was gazing down upon him serenely.
I attempted church on Sunday. I thought just the hour of Sacrament Meeting wouldn't be too bad 3 weeks after having him. But JB is still assigned to another ward for his calling, so it was me and My Three Sons by myself. Andrew woke up near the end ready to nurse. I panicked but Heather, 2 rows up, came back and sat with Max and Benny so I could go out. I don't know how I'm going to do that again!

JB brought me home some delicious Myers chicken the other day.
Because many moons ago he promised me a chicken dinner (my favorite in the whole world) when my spituation cleared up. That's when we thought it was just an annoying first trimester symptom. It finally went away the day I gave birth to Andrew! I am a new woman.
If you ever meet a pregnant lady with the same symptom, send them my way for some sympathy. I will buy the chicken.
