Potty Training

Consider yourself forewarned: If you don't like topics that include, but aren't limited too, poop, pee, potty training, or a Momma who gets overly excited about these kind of things, then you might want to back out of this post.

Well folks, we're potty training! Sort of. I'm kind of just letting Lincoln do his own thing with it. I'm letting him run the show for now. For the past couple of days I've been pretty much just randomly putting him on the potty. He normally likes to brush his teeth or read a book while he's sitting there. Sometimes he'll ask me to go on it. When he does that, I get really excited and eagerly put him on.

We had our first successful pee the other night, and I cheered for him! He LOVES when we cheer for him. He laughed while he was peeing. It was adorable :)

& we also had quite the disastrous event the other night. While I was giving Lincoln his bath, he stood up in the tub and made his famous poop face. I picked him up in hopes to get him to poop on the potty. Well, I was this.close to putting his little tush on the potty when I heard, "plop." That would be the sound of poop splattering on my floor. Oye!

Lincoln seems to be exhibiting some typical signs that he's totally ready for potty training. The first one being, he goes and hides when he poops. He has even gone into the bathroom, shut the door and pooped. At least he knows where to go, right?!

I also cannot leave my sweet boy with just a diaper on. He'll take it off. HOWEVER, not immediately. He seems to take it off right after he pees in it.

We'll see where this goes. But, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited about these potty training adventures! I even whipped out my camera the other night while he was reading on the potty. Oh, and as you can see from this picture, he has a bit of an obsession with the toilet paper...which is why it's a complete mess!

This also happens to be Lincoln's adorable new "cheese" face :)

Right before I snap a photo of my sweet boy, I ask him to say cheese. And he says "cheeeeese" in his little high pitched voice. I melt, every time.


  1. We're in the same boat right now! Taking it slowly. I have to get a few of those potty covers for around the house and my parent's house.
    Can't wait to hear how it goes for Lincoln!

  2. I really want to start potty training but not sure that we are ready. I put Rex on the potty and he will sit there but we have had no successful potty times yet. I do have to say that we have had a poop in the tub incident not that long ago but my hubby was the one giving the bath and he didn't notice the signs so there was no trying to make it to the potty. Good luck!

  3. That has got to be the cutest potty pic ever. How is he already old enough to use a potty??!!!

  4. How old is he? I blogged about our PT adventures too, about a year ago. Seems like forever ago! Following you now!
