It's officially day #3 of potty-training and things are still going well. We've had a few accidents, but for the most part Micah is peeing on the potty every time! He has been pretty good at telling me when he needs to go, but sometimes I have to remind him. I put him down for his nap both days with only underwear and he stayed totally dry. He didn't even have to pee when he got up. We convinced him to wear a pull-up for night though and both mornings he's woken up wet. But, I think we've got a really good start and I'm not expecting dry nights for awhile.
Going #2 has been another story though. The first day he went in his underwear - twice. I talked to him a lot about it after that, promising a little chocolate bar for when he could go in the potty. So, yesterday afternoon he told me he needed to go but every time he sat on the potty he would just cry. He tried several times and I could tell that he wanted to do it, but was too scared to or something. So, he held it in. Then this morning I could see he was quite uncomfortable because he really needed to go. He kept getting up on the potty to try (bless his little heart!) but then he would just come right off and cry. This went on for an hour and a half (it felt a LOT longer and I thought he was never going to let it out!) and then finally I think he couldn't hold it in any longer and he finally went in the potty!! (Though he cried through the process!) Who knew this could be so exciting! I made a really big deal about it and we celebrated with a chocolate bar and a sit in the hot tub and a phone call to Daddy. I think Micah was thoroughly proud :) Hopefully the next time won't be such a drawn-out process!
