Poop! (and Poop)

A couple weeks back we put Colston on his little potty- just for fun. When he got up there was a nice puddle of tinkle. Surprise and cheering soon followed.

Ever since we've been putting him on the potty whenever we change a diaper. Tonight I (Fred) was in charge of his before bed prep. I put him on the potty and could tell he was doing a bit more than #1. (The grunting was the clue.)

I peeked and found.....a little bit of poop in the potty! Naturally I called Jen in to celebrate.

There was much rejoicing. (If you don't understand this, go buy me a few boxes of daipers- Pampers size 4- and you'll get the enthusiasm over a toddler using the toilet.)

Colston sat a few minutes more and when he got up there was a good bit of poop in the potty.

We cheered.

Then he smiled and backed his bottom right into our white, terry cloth shower curtain.

Yeah for Colston!

Phooey on poopy shower curtain though!

I didn't realize how much my life has changed since Ian potty trained over the summer until last night.

He pooped in his night-night diaper.


It took two of us to change him...mainly because I couldn't remember how to do it.

They say boys are harder than girls but Ian did it before he was 2 years and 4 months old.
