judah has successfully dropped a deuce in the potty now for me, for jesse, and for my parents all on separate occaisions. my parents give him lots of opportunities to use the potty when he is with them but jesse and i in the chaos of our lives aren't as good about it. sometimes its just easier to change 2 diapers than to try to stay ahead of a 22 month old's BM's and urine through the sheer force of repetition and logic. i was the last to witness this momentous occurrence and it happened on monday. it (well, not it) looked like this:
he had JUST woken up from a nap, if you couldn't tell. note that layla is duly impressed.
i am not ashamed to admit that i freaked out so much doing a happy potty celebration when i saw those little nuggets that i scared the...well, not that...out of him. but his startling was quickly forgotten as he enjoyed his bounty of 3 reese's pieces. carrying an exposed turd all through our house to get to the toilet and then washing out the bucket, that was not exciting. kind of dry heave-y in fact.
