It's about darn time!

See this?

This is a picture of a BIG BOY who went POOP on the POTTY for the first time EVER!!!! Without ANY prompting from me!

Can you tell I'm excited???

About 1 1/2 weeks ago it was pretty hot out, so we spent a lot of time outside by the pool. Will was in swim trunks and no diaper, and all on his own annouced he had to go pee. So I told him to pull down his shorts and pee in the grass. The first couple times he tried to no avail. Then about the 3rd time trying, I wasn't watching, but he claims that he peed. I wasn't sure to believe him or not, but later when we were cleaning up toys in the yard he wouldn't go pick up a certain toy because he said there was pee in that spot!

This whole week, I took the diaper off when he woke up, and anytime he had to pee he'd run outside, drop his pants and pee! He's taken naps all week with no diaper and wakes up dry. But he still didn't want to go on the potty. A couple of times he had a poopy diaper first thing in the morning, and one day he just didn't go. But then yesterday, he comes running to me, holding his butt and says, with this worried and anxious look on his face (it was pretty hilarious), "I have to go poop!" So we quickly got on the potty, I shut the door and 10 seconds later....he'd gone! He was so proud of himself, and couldn't wait to tell daddy when he got home!

So there we have it. All on his own. Will is well on his way to being officially potty trained. Today, for the first time almost ever, I didn't buy ANY diapers when I went grocery shopping. It. Was. Awesome.

P.S. I really wish it was acceptable to post videos of him peeing outside. He is so cute and it is so stinkin funny, you guys.
