It's potty-time!

Little Elvis has been in a much better mood for the rest of the week. Which has been extremely helpful for Mommy and Daddy.

It helps that we now know his preferred mall routine -- escalator, Barnes and Noble train table, play area. He does try to run into most of the tween girl stores, but doesn't fight us when we pull him out.

The potty-training is still going well. The only caveat is that he wants to stand and pee in our toilet. He does a good job going before bathtime and night and will go during the day, usually after he sees Mommy or Daddy use the potty.

We're trying to be very low-key about this. His doctor was surprised that he was even interested in potty-training, and told us to not be upset if after a few months he regresses. We'll see.

Yesterday, while we were at Sam's, Little Elvis started gesturing and jabbering as we passed the public restrooms. We took him into the family restroom, and at first he only seemed interested in the changing table.

His diaper, which he had been wearing for a few hours, was bone dry. Bob held him over the potty, but Little Elvis looked extremely uncomfortable. So we used his diaper bag as a step-stool, and it was the perfect height. Once Little Elvis was comfortable, he really let loose!! We were so proud of him, and he was pretty proud of himself.

I'm not sure if this was a one-time occurrence, or the first of many, but it was definitely momentous.

Way to go on the potty training - I'm impressed! Esme cries and throws a fit of sorts whenever I try to get her to sit on the toilet...

Oh, I am so envious. We are in the midst of potty-training hell over here. I'm glad LE seems like a natural!
