Potty Training Colby

I'm pretty sure Colby had been ready to be potty trained for a while, I'll just haven't been ready to put the effort into it with everything else going on.

So... Wednesday after he pooped first thing in the morning and asked to wear his spidey underwear I decided to jump on in....

Day 1 (Wednesday)
Brent changed Colby's diaper when he got up and then when he helped the kids get dressed, he let Colby put underwear on Oct his diaper.  Shortly after breakfast he pooped in his diaper. Once I gother him cleaned up, he insisted on no diaper and just his underwear so I just kind of went with it.
All morning I asked him every ten minutes or so if he needed to sit on the potty and made sure he dI'd about every half an hour.  We made it through the morning with no accidents!
At nap time, I put a diaper on him but he woke up dry and managed to stay dry all afternoon.
We went to church for dinner and Brent up a diaper in him before we left and he wore a diaper to bed.

Day 2 (Thursday)
Colby woke up with a poopy diaper... and brought me a wipe and a pair of underwear to put on once he was cleaned up. He did good with no accidents all morning.
At lunch time, he did have an accident while eating. He took almost an hour to eat and I forgot to keep asking him about going potty. He didn't even tell me he had an accident until it he was all done eating. I got him cleaned up, he sat on the potty and peed a ton, then I put a diaper on him for rest time.
After rest time, Colby did good sitting on the potty all afternoon. He did have another accident during dinner, but stayed dry other than that. At night, he wore a diaper.

Day 3 (Friday)
Colby woke up and wanted to go potty right away. His night time diaper was only damp. He did good until about 11am... then he pooped in his underwear. But made it through the rest of the day without any more accidents.

On Saturday, Colby got some more Spidey underwear (he only had three pairs) and has been very excited to wear them ever since. We've had a few tears at rest time and at night time because he doesn't want to wear a diaper.

Colby has been doing very well telling us when he needs to go potty most of the time. I've been trying to remember to ask him every ten minutes or so. He's had a couple accidents.. they've all been when he's been busy playing and I forgot to remind him that he had underwear on instead of a diaper. I've also been trying to make him sit on the potty before Peyton nurses... because if I don't, without fail, Colby will tell me he needs to go potty while Peyton is eating.

I'm hoping he continues to do well and these first few days are a good indication that he really was ready to be potty trained!

Three Months Old

This little dude is three months old today! He's getting so big!

Peyton hasn't decided if he likes to sleep or not. Some days and nights he sleeps and sleeps and sleeps... and others he's just awake.

Most days, Peyton nurses about every three hours during the day and does two five hour stretches at night. Other times.. he just eats and eats and eats and eats. The kid loves boob just as much as his big brother. He's excellent at latching and getting what he needs.

Mommy is his favorite, but he also is pretty fond of Daddy and Emily. He doesn't seem to like Aunt Kara right now for some reason.

When he's awake, Peyton enjoys laying on his play mat and swatting at his toys. He also likes sitting in his high chair at the table during meals times to be apart of what's going on.  He rolls up on his side when he's laying on his back. Today, he made it all the way over but got his arm stuck and was not happy. He's really not a fan of tummy time... he'll tolerate it for a few minutes, but lets us know when he's ready to be done. He has excellent head control and can sit up when he has something to lean against.

Reflex wise, he seems to be doing better. He started new meds about two weeks ago and they seem to help control it. His RSV also seems to be on the mend. Peyton's breathing still is raspy every once in a while and he still has a decent cough at times, but it is way better than it was.

Peyton is wearing mostly 3 month clothes. A few of the 0-3 month stuff still fits him. The 3-6 month stuff is in his drawer, but I don't think he's worn any of it yet.

Peyton easily gives smiles and giggles to mommy. He will give them to others every once in a while, but they normally have to work for them.

We still really don't have a reschedule for Peyton. He eats on demand and sleeps when he wants to. Normally he's "down for the night" around 7:30pm and "up for the day" around 7:30am.

For the most part, Peyton is still an easy and laid back baby. Hopefully he stays that way! He is such a little blessing and brings us much joy!
