Big Boy!

Big Boy Sawyer (2 1/2)
loves his Buzz & Jesse!
The week of our Newport vacation, I decided I would try potty training Sawyer. This was going to be the most perfect time to do such a dreaded and hard thing, because he was going to be in his swim suit all day playing at the beach. I figured if he had an accident, no big deal cause he was surrounded with sand and the ocean water. (: The beach house was only feet away from the sand so I could quickly run him back to the house to use the potty. Sawyer was awesome! I was so surprised that he decided on his own (no forcing him to do it) to be big boy and go pee and poo on the toilet. I have somewhat tried to potty train in the past but he was not ready and said, "I like my diaper better." I then decided to just wait until he was ready to. He surprised me and told me he had to go potty everytime and willingly went on the toilet. He had two accidents the whole week he potty trained!! That is awesome! I told him he could pick out any toy at Target at the end of the week, if he does a good job at going on the potty. He immediately said, "I want a Buzz, and a Jesse!" I'm pretty sure he told me that over and over until I took him to the store. I was so proud of him, that I ended up taking him to Target in the middle of the week, instead of the end. He was so excited to go to the store and actually get to buy a toy that he wanted. Ever since that week of potty training, he has continued to stay potty trained. Yes, he has had the occasional accident, but over all I would call him potty trained! I dont use pull-ups during the day anymore, but of course at night. I am so glad that I am done with changing his diapers, that was getting to be a little too much for me. Im so happy for you Sawyer that you are a big boy now! He loves wearing his cool undies, just like his big brother, Carter.
