My amazing child

Baby has been so amazing these last few weeks. Giving me kisses non-stop all day for no reason. Eating what I serve him. Not throwing tantrums and just being a pleasure to have around. Not normal for a 2 year old, right?

He is even all on his own started to potty train. For the last 2 months after breakfast I take his clothes off and let him run naked for a few hours. We have a potty sitting in our living room for him which he had never used but 4 days ago he started peeing in it and then 2 days ago pooped in it. I wasn't even in the room when he did that. How crazy is that?

Yesterday his cousin was over and I think he just forgot about the toilet and peed and pooped in his underwear but for the rest of the day he peed in his potty. I will be stuck at home for the next 3 days so we can try and get this potty thing down.

I am thinking naps and bedtime he will have to wear a diaper until he starts waking up with a dry diaper. I refuse to buy pull ups cause they ate way more expensive than diapers.

I am hoping within the next 2 weeks he can have it down cause then we go on away for a few days and I don't want him to back track.

Sounds like you are off to a great start! Be patient though, it took Isaac months and months and months to master it. It can be so furstrating. I feel like books and magazines make it sound it can be done in a weekend or a few days, but it is a long process, especially with boys. It is exciting though, because every success feels like a little extra money in your pocket.
