I'm a big kid now!

A little over a month ago we started working with Tyler on using the potty. We have been talking about it with him forever and we finally took the plunge. I was really nervous about it, but surprisingly it went really well! And it feels so great to have only one child in diapers. The first day or two was pretty bad. He would pretty much pee anywhere and everywhere in his underwear. He would get really upset about being wet. I would take him every 30 minutes but he would never use the potty. He had peed on the potty before bath time a couple of times so we knew he could do it. Finally one day he was sitting on the potty and he heard the garbage truck drive up and he really wanted to see it. I told him he had to pee pee on the potty before he could go watch the truck and he went right away! That was the beginning of him understanding and figuring out he could do it. Getting him to poop on the potty was a totally different story! He kept just pooping in his underwear and then telling me he had poop. I didn't know how we were going to get him to go on the toilet, but one day he told Travis he had to poop and he went and since then it hasn't been a big deal. He really has done great and within a couple of weeks he wasn't having accidents anymore! I don't even put him in pull ups for church or when we go out. I'm so proud of him! Way to go, Tyler!!!

Learning to use the potty!
