Potty Training Day 4

Can I just say, I am about as proud a peacock as a mamma can be. Joshua has taken so well to potty training. I am so thankful! Having said that, next weeks potty training will not be "nakey baby" style but big boy underwear style. He does great when he's naked as a blue jay, however he doesn't understand the concept of having underwear on... so we will stay in most of the week next week in nothing but our skivies (well, just Joshua, I will wear clothes) :)

If there is any wisdom that I may impart (which is actually what I learned from my big sis "143") is to barricade yourself in the house (don't plan outtings- although we had a couple of trips to the grocery store/library/eye doctor). We stayed in the house for the most part and did absolutely nothing but potty train. Now, this may only work when you have one child (or in 143's case one big kid and one little kid). But I definitely think it had everything to do with how quickly Joshua learned!

YAY!!!! We may actually be potty trained before birthday #2~ :)

Sounds like "big sis 143" is a brilliant one : ) Maybe I can borrow her in a few years when we have little ones?

So proud of Joshua...and YOU! I know that takes a lot of work!

His Aunt KiKi is very proud of him too...and a bit envious of such easy potty training experience!

YAY! YAY! YAY! Be proud, getting a boy potty trained by 2 is PHENOMINAL! But then again, Mimmy always knew Joshie was EXTRAORDINARY!

Sounds like things are going well. I cant believe how big he is getting... They grow too fast. It feels like my youngest was born just the other day, but he is 7! Thank you for your kind words and prayers. They are greatly appreciated.
