I'm so excited!

I'm sure that this wouldn't really excite a lot of people but DS completely emptied his bladder for the first time today on the potty. He was having some naked time and I notice a dribble starting so I told him that we needed to go quick to the potty and (he usually doesn't sit long) so DH brought a story book and while there he dribbled a bit so we showed him that we need to empty the potty on the big toilet and then wash our hands. But I knew that in a minute he would either pee on the floor or pee in a diaper so I suggested we read another book. and while doing that every time he started to dribble I would cheer him on and say You're peeing and we would clap. We asked him if he could do it again and he did this on and off until his bladder was empty and you could see the light in his eyes that he was the one making him pee. We clapped and told him we were so proud of him. Then we cleaned up and did the regular bathroom things.

We're just so proud of him and for the most part I have no idea what to do next, but I'm just going to be happy for today and leave it at that.

Thanks for listening to me.

I think what you did helped him to start making a connection. Very exciting.

Re: I'm so excited!

I asked him this morning when he woke up if he wanted to sit on the potty and he said no, so I'm not going to push him. I also asked him if he wanted to wear his diaper and he said yes, so maybe we'll do some naked time later today when I can watch and encourage. I just don't want to do too much since the baby will be here next month.
