Yay Team!

This picture was taken on January 9, 2011 (pretty much exactly 1 year ago when he was 1.5 years old).  I had been so excited that he was getting interested in sitting on the potty - he even has the book :)

Fast forward 1 year, and he has refused to sit on the toilet at all, with about 4 or 5 exceptions.  I have been getting a little nervous, wondering if he will ever potty train.  He is finally getting out of his really bad "no" stage (No isn't always his standard response now).  So today I told him that starting tomorrow we were sitting on the potty and wearing big boy diapers.  I asked him if he wanted to practice tonight, so when we were getting his pyjamas on I asked him if he wanted to sit on the potty and he said "yes" (cue excited music).  So I watched him pull his pants down and I helped him sit on the potty.  I went to get him a book to read, and by the time I got back he had gone pee!  Yay!

Of course I made a big deal out of it, and I called out to Mike to come upstairs and rejoice in the potty moment.  I was so excited I said "Yay Team" and Ethan thought that was the best so he was saying it the rest of the night.

So here's hoping that this streak continues through until tomorrow.
