Potty Wars, the saga continues

Ethan had another victory over the dreaded potty. He not only managed
to tell us when he needed to go potty, he undressed himself, sat by
himself, went #2 for the first time in a long time on the potty, got
down and told me, got dressed all by himself, then reminded me he
needed help washing his hands. Hooray for my big boy! We are really on
our way. He wears underwear all day, even during a nap.

He swam at his friends' (Ali and Tyler) house and didn't pee in the
pool. He got out to use the potty.

He still wears a pull up at night, but he doesn't pee at night but, he
has had an occasional morning accident on the carpet. I think next
week we will go to underwear all the time.

"I so prouda you!" -Ethan
"Yes, I am very prouda you, babe" -Mom

Danielle, He has been doing so well. He had an accident earlier, so I think he was a little discouraged, but no big deal. It happens. He got right back up on the potty a few minutes ago.

We just changed the header yesterday. You are the first to notice, but most people RSS, so I wasn't expecting anyone to really notice. Thanks!

D-Woot! Being old school rocks. Especially when RSS can be unreliable!

J-Ethan does really well at night, he has natural control at night and always has, so it was an easy switch. It's the during the day #2's he is having trouble with now. Eewww! Javi is still in a night time pull up at 8, so I don't know when we will be able to ditch the diaper. He sleeps like the dead. We wake him up at midnight to go pee, but it isn't enough, he still wets the bed with a pull up on.
