Maybe just a fluke... I hope not!!

Saturday was a very exciting day!! I walked into the bathroom in the morning to put my makeup on and Andrew followed, as usual. He was playing with his little boy potty I bought him a couple of weeks ago and said 'poop mama, diaper off', which he has done before. I thought it was normal, and continued my business. I took his diaper off and he sat on the potty for a while. Suddenly he hopped off the toilet and said 'pee mama'. To my surprise he really had peed! I was so excited! We gave him some candy and praised him for the rest of the afternoon. We took the boys to see Grandma Sandy and Grandpa Leonard that night while Jake and I went out. Grandma put him on her toilet and he did it again. Grandma thought since he went potty she would let him run around without his diaper off, which he LOVES. However, he had an accident on the tile. At least it was on the tile. Saturday night Grant slept seven hours strait! WOW! He is just one month old! I hope he keeps it up! SATURDAY WAS A GOOD DAY!!
Sunday I would ask Andrew if he needed to go potty every hour or so. He didn't ever seem too interested. I let him run around with his diaper off... that seemed to help our friend's little boy potty train, so I thought I would try it. He had an accident on the carpet!!! EEEK!! He had another accident today, this time on Grant's play mat - I really think it was intentional ;) - at least I can wash that!! But I really think all of this just might pay off. I walked in the bathroom again to put my makeup on today and Andrew was already sitting on the toilet. I think I scared him. He stood up really fast and started to run from the bathroom and a little brown suprise fell from his bum! I am quite delighted that he seems to be doing so well!! Wouldn't it just be heavenly if we didn't have to buy or change diapers for Andrew much longer?!! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but I'll definitly continue to work with him at it!

Oh the joys -- i do not miss potty training! But it is so worth it in the end.

That is so exciting that Andrew is showing interest and he isn't even two! I wish Kasen showed more interest. Having two in diapers wears on the budget.

I hope not either! We are in the same boat with Emma, but she is now dry at home it is getting her to be able to be dry away from home! How is the new little one. We cant wait to see him!

He's a big boy! So cute. I love it when we get to play with him. Cutter man likes him too now that he knows he can stick up to him! He will have to come over and play soon. We love Grant too. What a good sleeper. Cutter did 11 hours the other night. Whoa.
