I might be braggin' :)

Ok, i might be bragging a bit, but i am loving how well James and Jonathan have been potty training! 
a few weeks ago, when i first decided it was time to really train James, i thought i would have a permanent flat spot from banging my head against the wall a few days into it, so i gave up for a bit... 
After Jonathan wanted to train, i thought i would have an even harder time, but i knew i had to keep it up... and i was surprised to find that doing it with them both, is easier... 
its a little harder getting them on the potties at the same time, (getting Jonathan undies soon, so i don't have to keep undoing the diaper. ) but Jonathan and James are encouraging each other to train. 
James  has always been a leader, and Jonathan a follower, which in the case of training... has made things easier. James has reason to "show" Jonathan how to do it, and Jonathan always wants to do what James does... 
i suppose i should not have been so surprised, because that is how they have done everything else... James is motivated by Jonathan, and Jonathan just HAS to 1-up James... 
for the last 3 days James has been dry!(except at nap time) and Jonathan is learning quickly!

training together...

James and jonathan are potty training together... i never thought this would happen... but im glad! 
its kinda like having twins,,, (i think) 
i couldnot get james to sit on the potty long enough, and he would go in his pants... 
then yesterday, jonathan walked up to his bathroom door and said... "I PEE PEE! " 
i was thinking, yea right... but lets try... and 
he went! and has been for the last 24 hours! yippie! 
then james notice he had a buddy, so he wasnt bored, and now he will sit and empty his bladder... 
today they are both dry! with only one accident with james... (he get into playing, and has trouble telling me, so really the accedent is my fault, cuz i get caught up and forget to take him sometimes... )

Jonathan seems to be really good at telling me he has to go, so i am hoping this will help James SAY that he has to go... (i have found that his delay in speech is a hindrance in the potty training area)

Random post!

we are off!  i have decided that using pullups is only making the potty training take longer... he seems to think its ok to go in his pullup... (most likely because it is like a diaper...)
i am hoping that a different approach  on what to wear will give this boy some reason to go on the potty all the time... 

he picked out thomas the train underwear... 

 he says "wooo wooo! its Thomas!" 

here's hoping.
