Potty Learning

I recently heard this term rather than "potty training" and I think I like it better :) They have a lot to learn about this whole potty thing including self help skills like pulling clothes up and down, using words to express that need, etc :)

It is going VERY well! He is 100% when naked on the bottom (we have him wear a long shirt for modesty) :) We have started putting him in underwear today and so far we are on pair 3! Mostly it's because he just doesn't realize it quick enough. I just had to take a break from writing for a minute because he had this "look" on his face and said "potty?" I rushed him to the potty and success! Of course at sleeping times we still have him wear a diaper "just in case!"

I am not one who believes in pull-ups at all. I think they are glorified (expensive!) diapers that really are no better than a diaper. By using real underwear he gets those sensations and actually feels wet and uncomfortable (and therefore doesn't want it to happen again). I may have a load or two of extra laundry, but I'll still save a lot of money by not buying diapers or pull-ups all the time anymore!

I simply can't stand how cute his tooshie is in little underwear!!!! :) LOL!!
