Monday 10/17: Today was a fantastic day! He wore the same pair of underwear ALL day long (except during nap and bed time)!!!! He woke up wet, but I think that was just because we didn't quite make it in time. We even went for a short (1 hr) trip and he stayed dry the whole time. He also did poop in his diaper during nap time but other than that Parker did fantastic!!!
Tuesday 10/18: This morning Parker woke up dry and he made it to the potty! The rest of the morning was fairly uneventful, except for the one accident that he had. I had to run a few errands in Breckenridge so I put him in a diaper just to be on the safe side and when we got back a couple hours later, he was still dry! Yay :) Nap time again consisted of pooping in his diaper, twice. And then he had another accident before dinner, so over all it wasn't the best day but, I have faith that it will be better tomorrow!! He is doing a lot better about keeping his diaper dry, and I think he knows now that he has to go potty in the potty and not his diaper. He did finish out the night by going potty again before bed, so at least we ended the day on a good note!
Wednesday 10/19: Parker woke up dry again in the morning and after his nap. I believe he only had 1 accident today.
Thursday 10/20: Parker went poop in the potty again today! We have been staying kept up in the house the last couple days to try and really make sure he gets it, and I think we are getting closer. Maybe tomorrow we will venture out to the park or something to get out of the house. We are so proud of how well he is doing! He did have 1 accident today, however, but only having 1 accident each day for the last few days is awesome.
Friday 10/21: Today he didn't quite make it to the potty when he first woke up, but that was mainly our fault for not helping him get there faster. We then took a short 1-hour trip to the park and he stayed completely dry the whole time!! It was great :) After his nap he was again dry and a little bit later in the afternoon, right before dinner time he had one accident. Then after dinner we took a trip to the store and he stayed dry. On the way home we asked him if he needed to go potty and he said he did, so we hurried our fastest to get home before he had an accident. Well, he held it and went in the potty! Good job Parker! The days are getting better with only really having 1 accident in his underpants. I don't really count the ones in his diaper because most of the time it's just us (me) being lazy and not taking him to the bathroom.
Saturday 10/22: Parker again woke up dry this morning!!! We might just have to try and risk putting him to bed with underpants on and see what happens! A couple hours later, after breakfast he went poop and pee in the potty...YAY :) Can you tell I just get even more and more excited as each day passes? Just the thought of only have 1 child in diapers is just so nice and so close! This afternoon we had to go grocery shopping and look for costumes for the boys up in Silverthorne (about 45 minutes away or so). We decided to risk it and let Parker wear his underpants the whole time, but went prepared with extra clothes and a towel for his carseat in case he had an accident while we were driving. On our way up there we found out that Chris needed to go to Vail first to pick up some primer for work which is about 30 minutes or so in the opposite direction of Silverthorne...it made me a little nervous, but luckily since it was nap time the boys both fell asleep and slept the whole way. When we got to Sherwin Williams we asked if Parker needed to go potty and he said yes, so we took him inside and he went! Then when we finally got to Target we had him try again, but he didn't need to go, so we just continued our shopping. Right before we left we had him try and he still didn't need to go. However since it was dinner time we found this burger place that we wanted to try (wasn't really that great by the way!) and afterwards we asked if he needed to go and he said yes and he went!! We had a couple more stops to make before heading home, but to sum it up...We were gone for a good 6-7 hours at least and he stayed dry the ENTIRE time!!! He even went again when we got home, which means that Parker went the ENTIRE DAY without having 1 single accident, in a diaper or underpants!! WOOHOO Parker, way to go :)
Sunday 10/23: Today was accident free also, except he did poop in his diaper this morning before his bath..ggrrr. But other than that, he did great! Even at church! I'm pretty sure he has the concept down, now we just need to fine tune everything and get him completely out of diapers and having him actually tell us that he needs to go so we don't have to nag him about it all the time. I had really been dreading doing this for quite some time but the whole process really wasn't as difficult as I had thought it was going to be!!! I'm glad the worst part is finally over! Hopefully :)
