been a long time comin'

Embry is finally potty-trained! There have been several failed attempts, but he finally decided he was ready to wear big boy underwear for good.

It just goes to show that if you let them do it when they are ready, it makes for a fairly easy process. Hayes didn't have a choice. He was required to be potty-trained for preschool. Oh the misery of forcing a kid when he isn't ready. And Ellie is such a go-getter that she conquered it pretty quickly.

He has done extremely well for several weeks now... we've just waited until the perfect time (read: brother and sister were elsewhere) to celebrate with a trip to Toys R Us.

Way to go Paddywack! I'm so proud of you!

Allison said...

Yay Congrats!!! I think it's going to be a while for us, but I'm not going to rush it either.

Katie L said...

YEAH!! Go Embry! I'm so glad you were able to spend some alone time with him.

LauraD said...

What a cute little bum he's got in those Batman underwear!

Way to go Embry!

Minnie said...

Minnie is so proud! He did pretty good for me when I kept him last.. just a few slip ups, but you could tell he wanted to please... Now I will have to keep my promise to him :O) and oh he remembers that too ;o)

Jessi said...

YAY-YAY-YAY! Go Embry!!!! Such an exciting milestone...for everyone! Gotta love some Batman!

I'm with you on the 'waiting till they're ready'...my first attempt with Josiah at 2.5 years was a complete FAIL...waited until he turned 3, and we haven't looked back.

Yay for Jack!!!

Desiree said...

Awesome job, Embry! (mommy too)... I'm glad to hear it's better to wait until they're ready. I have so many people pushing me to potty train Alex (he turned two a week ago) - as early as last summer I was already hearing about it! I'm not looking forward to two in diapers but I'm not looking forward to the process, either... I guess it's on the horizon, though.

Good for you for taking him to ToysRus without the siblings. :)

Happy (Belated) Easter from the Owens

Also, will you vote for my cousin?

Cindi said...

Congrats! I know how little boys are :)

Nana said...

Embry did good when he was here except when he had a pull up on. It was so funny...I saw him give a little shiver and look at me, like uh oh. Nana didn't make a big deal of it. Nana's proud of you too Embry!!!

Congrats!!! We just got our 3 yr. old potty-trained recently. It's so nice to have it done. Although, it is bitter sweet.
