Potty Trained!!!

Why did I wait so long?
I was dreading Potty Training...
and for what?
It was so easy!

A couple days before Miles turned 3 we kept telling him
 "when you turn 3 you're gonna go potty on the toilet"
The toilet was nothing new for him. 
We've been putting him on the potty every night before baths for a long time.
So I'm sure that helped potty training go so smoothly.

He really struggled with doing his business at first. 
He was super freaked out!
Sooooooo....he didnt go for a couple days.
Which was no fun for any of us.
We sat there FOREVER, we read books, we sang, etc...
He cried, screamed and hated it!
But finally he went!
He discovered it wasn't scary.
And he discovered he got 2 M&Ms and a fiber gummy when he went.

And now... he's a pro at it all.
He flushes the toilet like a pro too.
(Since we started potty training in January he only had one pee accident and 2 yucky accidents...Go Miles)

We don't need stickers anymore, we don't need M&Ms anymore.
It only took him a couple days to get it.
Why did I wait soooo long?
It's so nice to not buy diapers for him anymore.
He loves wearing his "big boy underwear."

Now if he can just pull down and pull up his clothes on his own that'd be great.
Time to bust out the treats for some additional training.
