Today was day 5 of our potty training/learning/mess experience AND Little Man was accident free. We are so proud of him and he is equally proud of himself. He loves to declare that he doesn't wear diapers, only Choo Choo underwear. I have a lot of confidence that this success will continue and then we can start to test it out of the house. We are all going a little stir-crazy. But success has been in part to keeping Little Man wearing just his underwear so that he can pull them down by himself and get to the potty all on his own, the independent guy that he is.

Peanut has just been taking it all in stride and dealing with not getting much attention as the rest of us do run run run to the potty, followed by our pee-pee dance and the rest of the routine. Although he has decided that while he has little to no interest in rolling all of his 20 pounds over, he is interested in sitting up. We thought that maybe he wasn't actually sitting, but rather being propped up by his fat rolls. So we investigated, looked from all angles and determined that he is indeed tripoding, the first stage to sitting. (we are thinking that the fat rolls are at least aiding in his tripod attempts, but we are still going to count it!)
