Poo-Poo....don't look if easily disgusted...

Over the past several weeks, if Bennett speaks out loud about her need to go "tee-tee, " it has prompted Preston to say that he needs to go as well. Because we want to get him comfortable with the toilet, we always take off his diaper and place him on the big toilet. Of course he never goes, but he likes the idea of pretending he does. I know he is too young to really start potty training, but I want to get him used to the idea of sitting on the toilet, so we can push for the big goal in about 6 months. He holds on to us for dear life while he is up there, but is slowly getting more used to the idea.


Today he said out of the blue that he "poo-poo." I asked him if he had a poo-poo, and he said "yes." Then Steve asked him if he wanted to go on the toilet, and he said "yes." Thinking that he must have already done the job in his diaper, I told Steve to go for it. So he took off his diaper (with nothing but tee-tee in it), set him on the toilet and then he actually pooped. We got him off and clapped and gave him high fives. He smiled so big and was so proud of himself and he asked to go again. Of course, he didn't go again, but we were proud of his small prize at the bottom of the toilet.
