He went Potty!!

I know I need to post on my ski/snowboard trip, but I haven't had time to download my pics, so I will do that soon. I did survive it, so that's good right?

What I have to say is so exciting! I have been saying, since Skylar turned 14 months that at 16 months, I will start potty training him. Well, 16 months came and went and I hadn't even bought the potty seats yet. Fast forward a month and I introduce the "potty". I would try before he took a bath and when he woke up. We had two shooting pee accidents, which meant on the floor or on me. Well, tonight I brought him to the toilet, he sat down and then just got back up, nothing....then he sat back down again and drum roll........ peed!!!!!!!!! The toilet he has plays music if you pee. So, when the music went off, he got up quickly and nervously, but I began to clap and then he started to dance to the music naked, ahah! I wished I had that on video. I'm so proud of him. My goal is for him to be completely potty trained by the time he's 2, so we'll see. Now that he knows how this potty thing is supposed to go, we're going to try every time we can. Wish us luck!! I know this might take 6 months, but hey, I have 7 months to work on my little man!!

Also, if you're wondering, my reason of trying to potty train him early, is because right when Skylar turned 6 months, my mom told me to start potty training him. WHAT? Um....Que? Mom (AKA Nanny), then informed me that all 5 of us kids (4 girls and 1 boy) were all potty trained before our 1 year birthday. That's unheard of, but I want to give my mom a big shout out on that, because that's amazing!!! I'll keep you posted on this journey of multiple clothes changing, multiple accident cleaning and running around the house naked. Fun times will be had at the Presnell House!

That is GREAT! I started really early with Eli also. An attorney from China insisted that they start potty training from the time their children are born. She stayed on me about potty training early.

He was pooping and peeing before he turned two. Never too early.

YEA SKYLAR!!

Good luck! I will be looking to you for wisdom, next month....AHHHHHHHH! I am so not looking forward to this. I already have enough to do. Cleaning up pee and poop and asking, "do you need to go potty?,over and over...fun stuff.

Ellie went a few months ago but it is not consistent at all and I did not want to push her cause she is so little. She is starting to take her pants a diaper off right after she pees so after her scan on Tuesday I am going to ask the kidney doc if he thinks it is ok. Good Job Skylar and Good Luck Mommy!

your mom is awesome, as are you. way to be skylar's biggest cheerleader. training kids early really depends on the willingness of the parent. sounds like you are right there with him. way to go you two.
