Aaron got to go to his first ever movie in a theater this past Saturday - Toy Story 3 in 3D. Cousin Brynn came too!
Funny enough, it was in the same theater where we do church, so it was hilarious that Aaron was expecting church instead of a normal movie. But he did great and seemed to enjoy the experience, though he got a little wiggly at the end =)
Also, we found this wig in Daddy's closet and it has been quite comical ever since:
He thinks it is so hilarious to put it on and tell me that he needs a haircut. =)
Something also we have been working through with this little guy for about 6 weeks or so has been quite a challenge..... In short, Aaron was requesting to go to the bathroom ALL THE TIME (sometimes every five minutes) during the day. After a trip to the doctor's office with no physical explanation as to why (i.e. no UTI, no diabetes, etc.) it was brought up to us that it could be a case of pollakiuria, which is basically a fear induced/anxiety driven syndrome in which kids have extreme frequent daytime urinating. In short, it was very challenging, at times aggravating and embarrassing, to not only be taking Aaron to the bathroom every few minutes (especially while out of the house), but to not know exactly why his anxiety would be so high, or how to help him overcome it. I tried refusing to take him, rewarding him when he waited, taking him without discussion every time he asked, etc. We were encouraged by the doctor to give it a few weeks and do our best to reassure him and trust that it would eventually work itself out.... Lee and I felt very helpless and were left to simply pray hard and often for him, and that the Lord would give us wisdom with how to handle it - I wish I could say that I'm mature enough in my faith that that was a comfortable and peaceful place to be in, but I cannot remotely say that.... I found myself worrying about Aaron's worry - then having to laugh at what I obviously passed on genetically to him! =) At any rate, about as quickly as it came on, it finally seems to have faded these past few days much to this mama's relief, though I'm still a bit cautious to get too excited!
So once again, I'm having to learn the lesson of Phillippians 4:6 to "Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God...." And to let His PEACE rule my heart and not my worry. Wish I didn't have to keep learning it =) Thanks to those of you that prayed along with us and felt our burden, even if it seemed trivial....
