The Potty Train Has Left the Station!

I can't believe how amazing Elijah has done since getting home from our trip. We made the switch to full time undies, and he's done great. He still has some accidents, but they've all been 1-2 drops of pee when he declares, "I'M SOAKED!!!!" I take him to the toilet and he finishes. I wanted Pete to teach him to pee standing up, but he said there was nothing to aim, lol. So, I had to teach him and help him aim... I can see that the bathrooms are going to need a bit more frequent cleaning from now on. He's even pooped on the toilet for the past two days. It looks like my days of two in diapers is finally over :) I have found that if I put him in a pull-up when we leave the house he pees in it almost immediately, so those are now out of the question. I'm not sure what exactly to do when we go somewhere for more than an hour... back to the good ol' plastic pants I suppose. I do put him in a diaper overnight, but he wakes up dry 90% of the time. Congratulations to my big, little man!!
