Well, there have been no updates because it must have just been time for Luke… He just spent three days with his friend Jackson and his parents at Disneyland and I am told he only woke up one morning wet, but made it to the bathroom the whole time!!! I really thank the first thread I read when I finally figured out what to do with Carleigh and I have to thank Carleigh too. Without her I don’t think Luke would have had as much motivation to really use the toilet. I am so happy it was easier the second time around. Goodbye diapers!
So over the last week we have not been able to stay home ALL day to dedicate time to potty training, but Luke is picking it up… He only had two accidents today and he is starting to get the hang of holding it in, so he can go about an hour to an hour and a half between using the potty. His accidents now have turned into realizing he has to pee too late and he is walking to the toilet but doesn’t make it. I just need to get him to tell me where it happened instead of searching for it. LoL. He loves his big boy underwear and has gotten into the habit of taking his night time pull up off first thing in the morning for his undies… I hope the progress keeps up. This is just so much better than the first round… at least so far.
Luke has been showing promise over the last month by consistently using the toilet before a bath, bed or just random times so I have been telling Luke that when his diapers are gone he won’t have them anymore… This morning was it. He woke up to see no diapers and after a brief moment of disappointment I told him that he was going to be a big boy now and he needed to go potty on the toilet. He proceeded to sit on the toilet (while he ate his poptart) and peed a little so I busted out the Mickey Mouse underwear. He was so incredibly excited he ran straight to daddy to show him.
I have heard that boys are much harder to get going, but I am hoping that having an older sibling will help push him along a little bit. I guess we will find out!
As a follow-up post to one I made a few years ago, I just wanted to quickly post the picture of the board Dave made on our wall. I believe it was his first board, and he says it’s a little heavy and not super surfable. He has since perfected the art, you should click here to check them out, or hit up their Facebook page!
So the tank is now done being setup for the time being. Maybe a few more plants in the future, but I am definitely looking for some new fish and color!
Here is a closeup of a few of the plants… not sure what the grass stuff is called, but the annubia on the right only had two leaves when I got it.
