Yesterday out of the blue he came to me and said "I have to pee" so I busted butt to get him into the bathroom, took off his pull up, all the while thinking he's just gonna stand here and do nothing, but it's a start anyway. And he leaned in(standing up!) and it took several seconds then all of a sudden he was peeing in the toilet!!!!!! WOOHOOOOO He did it 3 times all on his own accord yesterday. I then put big boy undies on him after the first potty. Only thing is he starts to wet his pants before he gets there, but the majority of it gets in the toilet, he'll get that down I'm sure (I hope lol) This morning he did it once so far!! He's in big boy undies, so we'll see how this goes.. I am soooo excited!!!!!!!!!!

Whoo Hooo!!! A self starter is so much easier to train! Aren't you happy you waited for him? All it seemed to take was a little nudging from Mom!

Ryan keep it up! Good luck Trish!

Yeah!!! Good Job Ryan!!!

Do you have a plan for poop Trish? Be careful, some kids will hold it for a very long time and then develop added fears b/c it hurts when they finally do go.

Very cool. I can almost imagine a world without diapers (then I will probably end up pregnant again)

One of my proudest parenting moments was potty training Zak. He would hold his poop and beg for a diaper. Once I put a diaper on, he would poop. One day, I finally told him that he had a choice-diaper or Barney. He chose Barney and never wore a diaper again. I came up with that by myself and I was as proud as a peacock (it doesn't take alot for me)

NO Idea about poop, as he already pooped in them, he ran behind the couch to do his business while I was changing Briana ACK! But I took him into the potty and put the poop into the toilet and he flushed it.. lol he has such a weak stomach sometimes that when he saw it in his undies he started to gag lol poor guy... it's a start though, if I have to wash 20 pairs of undies a day I will lol I'm just thrilled!!

I'll have to try one of those tactics maybe, I am just thrilled he's on his way, then we'll have to concentrate on Josh potty training and we're done training until Briana gets old enough lol I wasn't planning on having anymore after Josh and I was looking forward to no more diapers.. now I'll settle for just one in diapers lol

That's funny, Santana still does the same when he poops he'll warn everyone from the bathroom in his loudest voice: "Nobody come in here, it RreallY stinks!...Disgusting!"

They're so cute even doing poop! How lucky are we really!
