Last week was busy, so I didn't do Ian's weekly update. The main reason I do a weekly update is to keep a journal for myself, and for any other new moms who may want to know what their baby may be doing at certain weeks and months. And, if we have another baby I can go back and read about Ian as a reminder of what I was doing...and what he was doing.

Ari has the biggest, brightest smile of anyone I know. His smile lights up his entire face. He is a very handsome little boy and looks a lot like my dad and his family.
Ari is a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of kid. He will play what everyone else is playing and doesn't have a strong opinion. He is so laid back that we sometimes have to give him a little extra push.
His favorite food is chicken legs. He doesn't have a favorite TV show, and he isn't really into anything special. He LOVES his bears (blue bear and grandma bear), his bunny, and especially his blankies!!! He sucks on his tongue when he gets tired...he has done that since he was a little baby. Ari is a thin boy weighing only 35 pounds. He is a very special boy!
We love you so much Ari! You are a wonderful, precious gift! Keep smiling!

Then...Lauren said her throat hurts again.(Mon)
Roger and I are supposed to go out of town (with Ian!) this Thursday for the night...hmmm...

And then today...I could not be more surprised by this little guy. He has pottied in the toilet every time today!!! AND, I don't even have to ask him if he needs to go. He tells me when he needs to go potty! I'm amazed! Now, if I can just get him to poo on the toilet. Maybe tomorrow?

My baby is 14 weeks! I wanted to show him in pictures with two of his favorite things. He loves to lay in his bed and look at his mobile. He also loves the swing we borrowed from a cousin. He sits and coos and smiles at the mobile on the swing and at some fabric on the side of the swing.

This is what we do while we wait for Miles to go potty on the toilet. We sing and read books, too! I have to do whatever I can to keep him on the toilet until he goes. He has been holding it for a long time and even stayed dry for 2.5 hours during his nap this afternoon! We just finished our third day of potty training, and I think he is going to get it! He did much better today, but still leaves his mark here and there, and left a big mark in the bath tub today...yuck! If things keep going the way they have the past few days Miles may end up being my easiest boy to potty train, which would be nice since he has been the most difficult in every other area! He's a cutie!

I made this video for our baby dedication at church. The song is Masterpiece by Sandi Patty. I will be singing along with the video, so you won't hear the words on my blog. Check out YouTube, or do a search for lyrics on Masterpiece...it is a very special song and perfect for dedicating our children to the Lord.
