Poop has happened!!!

Woo hoo! Wow, Jacob has been terrified of pooping in the toilet ever since he has been introduced to it. Tuesday he finally pooped in the toilet all of his own accord and even without my knowledge. He came running out of the bathroom yelling, "I went stinky, I went stinky!!" I ran into the bathroom and he had flushed the toilet. I was so disappointed. (Something know one ever thinks that they would say or actually think) I told him that next time to let me see first. Apparently he was not done because 5 minutes later I hear him calling for me from the much more frequented commode! It was one the best things I have seen all year! A big pile of poop in the toilet and not in a diaper waiting for me to clean it! Woo, hoo!

This is a serious answer to my prayers. I told him that he did not get to wear diapers (pull-ups) any more and that he had to wear big boy underwear because he is a big boy. You should have seen the crocidile tears welling up in those big brown eyes. He cried all day long and in the afternoon he pooped on the carpet and guess who had to clean it up? Not I! It was Mr. Big Boy! I think that may have been the turning point for him, because it was like an hour later that he left his gift to the toitty. He has not had a poop accident since.

I am now working on his potty abilities. I have always just set the timer on the microwave and told him when to go. I am now having him going half naked around the house and he has to go on his own now, basically starting today. We will see how that goes, but I am still tingly about him pooping on his own that means that he is halfway there!
