half trained

We started potty training after Christmas because 1.) I knew he was ready and 2.)  I’m tired of diapers.  Well, we are happy to say that in just one short week, I believe he is “half potty trained!”  Yay!  Now I know what I’m in for with the other half…both of the girls took a long time (like 3 months) to finally go poo poo in the potty, but I’m just excited that he took so easily to peeing in the potty!  He was fighting us at first, (we were sitting him down on the potty), but when he discovered standing up and peeing, it was love at first sight!  😉  And, Asher is one lucky boy because BOTH his sisters are really into potty training him as well, and have both created sticker charts for him!  So when Asher goes potty (he hasn’t had one accident in several days), he gets a sticker from Rilyn on her chart she made for him:

Rilyn’s chart

and then a sticker on Ella’s chart, (you might notice that Ella isn’t into straight lines!):

I couldn’t resist a little bum shot!

And finally, he gets a jelly bean from me!  Wow, no wonder he likes to go pee pee in the potty! We have this little jingle we say together after he goes.  “I did it! I did it! I shout to the crowd! Going pee pee in the potty makes me feel proud!!!” And then he pumps his fist in the air like this:

such a big boy!
