"Come what may, and love it!......Yet in spite of discouragement and adversity, those who are happiest seem to have a way of learning from difficult times, becoming stronger, wiser, and happier as a result." ~ Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin

The garden and Asher's weight.

We planted the garden this week. 
It has been a little cold so we'll see how it goes. 

Potty training is going pretty well. 
no potty accidents in 4 days
wish I could say the same for the BM's
He's scared
He even sleeps in his undies and wakes up dry. 
When he's done he says, "I need to splush." (flush) funny, huh?

His girlfriends will thank me for this picture someday. 

Asher had an  appointment on Wed. 
no weight gain
I was pretty shocked, I thought for sure he would have gained.
When the medical assistant told me the weight (17 lbs. 3 oz.)  I must have looked confused
because she asked me if I was ok. 
I started to tear up but I was able to stop myself from crying.
He is eating so well. He will try anything.
I concentrate so hard on making his meals so that they will have the most calories possible.
Plus, he hasn't been throwing up lately. 
The doctor came in and asked a few questions then said she would like to get a scope done.
She wants to take it in through his mouth all the way to his small intestine taking biopsies along the way.
This is suppose to check for allergies.
I asked if she could coordinate it with his MRI. She said she would see what she could do. 
I kept reminding myself that he is happy and doesn't seem "sick".
He's been blessed so much so far.
plus, this touches my heart.
I am the young women's president in our ward. 
Wednesday 3 of my girls who are sisters told me that they had called 5 different temples and put Asher's name on the prayer roll there. They each called one, their mom called one, and their older sister called one. 
Their mom is not even active.  
I know there are lots of people thinking about us and keeping us in their prayers and I feel so grateful for that, so grateful! I have no doubt that is why he hasn't thrown up in about 3 weeks. The longest span EVER!
I know that through our trials we are strengthened and we come to know ourselves and become more acquainted with God.

It's true that Heath critiques my sewing projects like he would a piece of art. He tells me what he likes then he tells me how they could be improved. Most the time he's right. He's smart. Also true that we have an apple tree in our yard and that Asher's vocabulary seems to increase daily.
