A potty update and HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESSICA!!!

Yesterday was a breakthrough: Adrian told me that he had to go potty, before he was actually going!!  It was kind of funny, actually.  Adrian was sitting at his little table eating lunch and he says “Adrian no go potty on chair, me go potty in Toilet!”  So we rushed to the bathroom to go.  As I was pulling down his pants he changed his mind and wanted to finish lunch first.  So we came back out to eat some more.  Probably two minutes later he said he had to go potty again, so we went back to the toilet.  We took off his pants and he sat down, then jumped up right away saying “Me need Books!” and he ran into the living room to get a book.  We came back to the potty chair again, he sat down and read a book while he peed.  Pretty exciting.

Part 2 of this breakthrough: We were in the car at a red light a few blocks from home when Adrian tells me he has a poopy diaper.  A poopy diaper?!  For one thing, Adrian doesn’t wear diapers.  For another, he only poops standing up.  And a third, he has never before gone to the bathroom in the car.  I was a little confused.  I asked him if he had to go potty and he said yes.  As I tried to explain that we were almost home and could he please hold it, he ordered me to sing him a potty song.  My first thought was ‘great, a potty song will make him go potty’, but we turned that potty song into a holding-your-potty-until-you-get-to-the-toilet song and he peed in the potty as soon as we got inside.  One day he’ll be on his own!  I know it is in the future!  I even canceled the diaper service today 🙂

Happy Birthday Jessica!!  I’m so sorry I missed it yesterday, it was one of those things where I was thinking about it the day before, then completely forgot to call when it was time.  I hope you had the greatest day, I love you and can’t wait to see you again!
