Big Kid

Elijah started kindergarten today.
How did this kid get to be so big?
He did great on his first day and we're excited to see what this year will bring.

And potty training? He's still being a rock star. He went 7 times on day two, no accidents. Day three (today) he went 7 times again with two accidents when we left the house. He really is getting this thing! Still shouting on that rooftop!
When I told him to "give me a smile." :)
Elijah is getting to be such a big kid.

From the Rooftops

This needs to be shouted from the rooftops:

Elijah peed on the toilet six times today.

Six times, you guys. And no accidents (other than the wet diaper he woke up with this morning). That's a lot.

Oh, I used to say to myself I'd never post about potty usage. But that, my friends, has been thrown out the window. This is a hard-won victory for Elijah. This is a long time coming. This is a battle we've been waging for a while now. I am on the roof shouting for joy, praising God, doing a little jig. Can you hear us? We're been on the rooftop all day.

He's getting it! He's getting it! He's getting it! It's like something clicked for Elijah today.

I think Elijah has realized how awesome it is to use the bathroom (and how great it is that he gets to wash his hands every single time he goes, a huge reinforcer for him). And we can only hope that this continues tomorrow and the day after and so on...
Happy about washing his hands
Our six year old used the bathroom six times today. Six is my new favorite number.
