Capturing life's most precious moments

January 29, 2009


Havin just turned 2, Bubba is a big boy who learns fast and is very smart. He loves to run around the house naked, and since I am somewhat of a germ-aphobe, I told him if he wants his diaper off, he had to sit on the potty and try to go so we didn't have pee all over the floor. He has had lots of accidents, and each time, I clean it up, and tell him that he can't go potty on the floor, and put his diaper back on. I was always sure not to make him feel bad or like he was in trouble, but he caught on. All of a sudden two days ago, he came to me, holding himself, and said he had to poop. I got excited and ran with him to the bathroom, where he actually peed! Now he is regularly going #1 and #2 with just a few accidents!!

Now, whenever we are home, he gets to be "Nay-kid", and has been doing so great telling me when he needs to go! He even went in this morning and went #2 without telling me, and came out saying "Good Job!" to himself. With the baby coming in less than five months, I'm SO glad that he decided he is ready so maybe we wont have to buy twice the amount of diapers. We bought him his first pairs of big-boy underwear, with Cars on them, and he is so proud! I just love that little man!

I can't believe it. He is getting so big...And potty trained. That is so awesome. I guess it helps knowing that you won't have to change two babies diapers.
