Problem loading and external SWF with AS3

Hi,

I have a button that jumps the timeline to frame 25 in my movie. On that frame I have the code below, which loads an external SWF. Problem is, it keeps loading the SWF over, and over. I'm new to AS3, and I'm pretty sure I need an if statement that says if the SWF is loaded, then delete the 'enter frame' function, but I can't seem to figure out how to write that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, myFunction);
function myFunction(event:Event){
var load_mc = new Loader();
addChild(load_mc);
load_mc.load(new URLRequest("myMovie.swf"));
}

I've included two examples of code because I don't think you really need to ENTER_FRAME event listener.
//With ENTER_FRAME
addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, myFunction);
 
var loader:Loader = new Loader();
loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loader_Complete);
var load_mc:MovieClip;
 
function myFunction(e:Event):void
{
	loader.load(new URLRequest("myMovie"));
}
function loader_Complete(e:Event):void
{
	removeEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, myFunction);
	loader.removeEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loader_Complete);
	load_mc = loader.content as MovieClip;
	addChild(load_mc);
}
 
//Without ENTER_FRAME
var loader:Loader = new Loader();
loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loader_Complete);
var load_mc:MovieClip;
loader.load(new URLRequest("myMovie"));
 
function loader_Complete(e:Event):void
{
	loader.removeEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, loader_Complete);
	load_mc = loader.content as MovieClip;
	addChild(load_mc);
}
