Another one on the Potty?

Still working with Ian on the tee-tee in the potty. He's doing really good as long as we set a timer for him. Hard to get him to go on his own free will. But I'll take what I can get right now.

Call me crazy, but I've been taking Benjamin to the potty lately. I put him on it before he gets in the bathtub (ever since I actually saw him tee-tee in the tub - one of those things if you don't see it, you don't think about it as much, but once you see it....all over). Sometimes he has to have me pour some warm water over his privates before his body will go. Other times, he'll just go after I sit him on it.

So, I thought, why not sit him on it at random times too? Sometimes I'll take him first thing in the morning after he wakes up. He's gone then. Today, I decided to put him on right before his nap....he went...no warm water needed. He's soooooo darn cute when I tell him, "Benjamin, let's go tee-tee." He'll stop whatever he's doing, make his way to the bathroom, open the lid to the little potty, and sit himself down. Then he does this "Sssshh, issen" with his finger between his mouth and his ears. He's heard Ian say, "Shhh, listen" when he's gone potty. (Cause I used to have him be quiet so I could hear if he went or not...when he would sit on the big potty.) So, Benjamin does the same thing. Then he's so proud of himself when he goes. SO AM I!!!!!

That is so great! He's imitating big brother and PTing at the same time? Awesomely cool IMO.

You know, if you potty train a one year old boy, all the other moms are going to be sooo jealous of you! ha-ha!
