LUCKY!!!! Lol my daughter is 2.5 and it is still a huge battle trying to get her to pee on the potty!!! I guess one good thing is she poops on the potty with no issues....they definitely grow up fast though!!

CONGRATS!! I remember the first time my son used his potty! I was more excited than he was lol Little bit of advice.. When you start teaching him how to stand and pee, toss some Cheerios in the potty and tell him to pee on them! Ethan loved peeing on them lol

i was unsure if we should start out sitting or not, hes my first baby and nobody really told me lol my guess is they start out sitting and then inches has that down, then teach him how to stand up and pre? i sound really stupid asking this, lol but no one has told me anything. everyone i know has girls..i have heard of the cheerio trick! he loves Cheerios, so he will have a blast with that

Yeah it's best to start them off sitting simply because alot of places, the pottys are too high up for them to reach.. See I'm having a girl and I have no clue how to potty train them lol! Boys are pretty easy.. Atleast mine was!

atleast she has popping on the potty down! my son still doesn't tell me when he poops, i just know when he is because he grunts and gets all red haha he's so weird though, if i let him he would run around all day with a poop diaper on..its like he doesn't care that there is a load in his pants haha i have a feeling popping on the potty is going to be difficult. aw she will get it! who knows if this will even continue, im hoping and praying. i thought it was too early to start potty training, but
i guess i was wrong..yes they do :( i want another baby, but it's way too soon..i want him to be in school before we have another baby

yeah which makes sense. how old was your son when you started potty training him? that's great! i hope vincent will be easy, ive heard some horror stories of them peeing all over the place, and im not looking forward to that haha aw congrats! I've heard girls are easier then boys, but who really knows. good luck with everything!
How far along are you?
