Pee-pee in da potty!!

Did I say I wouldn't be so excited when my son pooped in the potty? Well, I didn't say it for pee-pee!!!!!!!!
He pee-pee'd in the potty TWICE last night!!!!!
He ASKED to do it!
I was laying on the couch (watching cable, REBECCA! HAHAHA) after dinner and he was laying next to me. (Showing him great things, I am.) He turns around to face me and says "Mommy, pee-pee." My eyes went wide, "You have to go pee-pee?" I asked him. He nods, and says "Toilet." and headed for the bathroom. I followed him, trying not to skip the whole way. He lowered his sweat pants (day care attire) and I unstrapped the diaper and he sat. And waited. And then it came out and the stupid potty chair distracted him with the music (it plays when they are actually going. Stupid motion sensors.) so he stopped but then kept going. It took everything I had not to break into a touchdown-style victory dance right there in the bathroom. I took my son back into the living room and he jumped up and down and clapped to tell Daddy the happy news. (Daddy is dying now by the way. Really, really sick.)
The second time he went to Daddy while he was in the kitchen and he assisted him.
It was awesome. But I do think I'm taking the batteries out of the potty.
So there are some happy news in the Stuck Household. Now I guess I should buy him the Elmo Goes Potty video, for more encouragement...
And I totally gave him a cookie after he went. He didn't expect it, but I felt I should have rewarded him, it was his first time in my house after all.
I'm all excited....

It is such a wonderful thing! Eventually you'll be cleaning pee off of everything in the bathroom! YAY! (Sorry, I just cleaned my bathroom and had to say it!)

It's a right of passage - bravo, little big man!

Awwwwww! Shweet. Your baby's all growed up now... Doesn't it suck that when we get sick we still have to deal with everything in the house; but when the men prick their fingers the whole world has to stop? Hopefully Daddy will get better soon. A sick hubby is no fun at all.

mamalee- oh I know! As soon as he discovers he can not only aim, but move it around I'm in trouble!
SPB- oh he's a big baby when he's sick, as I imagine most hubbys are. "Can you make me some soup?" As I'm getting ready for work and getting the baby ready for daycare...dude is lucky I love him.

Wow! That is wonderful. Lucas could care less about the potty -- I keep telling myself no one gets married in diapers!
