Caleb signed Potty today in church...

I was snuggling with Caleb during the sermon today at church.  He was being rather good and not making to many humming noises as he usually does.  About 3/4 the way through the sermon he gets a little goofy.  Starts giggling and starts squirming.  Then out of no where, he signed "potty" to me.. I asked him if he signed potty and he shook his hand yes.. I sat there for a moment wondering what he was signing potty for.. just to show me that he knows the sign, to get out of the rest of church by getting to go down stairs to the bathroom, or to actually go to the potty??!!  In another two minutes or so, he signed it again. I asked if he HAD to go potty and he signed "yes".  Off to the potty we went.

No expectations. I was just happy that he had asked to go.  

Once we got to the toilet and pulled down his pull up I was S H O C K E D that he went to the potty!!!!!  We moved into pull-ups about a month ago.  We take the boys to the potty several times a day, but often they just try real hard and we praise them for trying.  They have pee'd on the potty a few times and we have a goofy little potty dance we do.. but they have NEVER signed it and actually held it long enough to get to the toilet.

Today is a HAPPY DAY.. I think this is a big step and I hope one that will continue.  Our preacher Keith said look how God Blessed us today at church.... Oh what a blessing that was!!!!!!!!

Pee Pee in the Potty... woot woot!!!!

Way to go! Sounds like we are in a similar place with the potty training. Ben had never actually told us he had to go yet, but he actually did poo in the toilet twice over the weekend. Here is for big potty advances for both our families!
