More Pee & Poo


AJ has peed on the potty 4 times today and pooped three times. Once he even did it at Grandma & Bop Pa's house on the real toilet! Wow! IMPRESSIVE!

Pee & Poop!

AJ has become completely obsessed with toilets lately. He loves to flush them and watch the water go around the bowl. Pretty nasty if you ask me, but I can understand the fascination (since he is only 20 months!) So, when I use the bathroom, I typically will ask him if he wants to go with me. He ALWAYS want to go with me.

This morning, we were reading a book about ABC's and we got to the letter Z and there was a picture of a zipper. He pointed to his zipper on his PJ's and he started to unzip them. I figured it was time to get dressed anyway, so I let him take off his PJ's. He was standing there in his diaper, and I said, "Do you want to go pee pee?" Of course his answer was a very excited, "YES!" - and he ran towards the bathroom.

We got in there and I took off his diaper and he just sat right down on his little boy potty. He would sit, and then stand, and sit and stand and finally, I told him, if he goes pee pee, he can flush the toilet. So, he sat down on his potty again and he peed! I could see on his face that he was really trying to pee. He was concentrating.

When he was done with his first little pee, he got up and I removed the little pee bucket (for lack of a better term) and dumped it in the real toilet. Then AJ got his reward.... FLUSH! He was so excited! I remember thinking to myself, "I hear of people who have to give their kids M&M's when they pee in the potty, but all I have to do is let him flush!"

So, we did this whole thing about 10 more times. A little pee, dump it in the toilet and flush....

I got a total surprise when he was sitting on his toilet, TRYING to pee (at this point, I think his bladder was close to empty) and he stood up again and there it was..... POOP! hahaha! Sorry to be so graphic and disgusting, but this is a big milestone! He POOPED in the potty! This kid is 20 months old!

I think it's pretty funny that the highlight of my day was the fact that AJ pooped and peed in the potty- but heck, I'm a mom! A very proud mom :)
