Big Boy Quinn

I took the plunge with Quinn!  I NEVER thought I would potty train my kids by 2.  I just wasn't in a hurry and thought it would be way harder than waiting til they were older.  But for some reason a few weeks ago, I just thought to myself, "I really think Quinn could potty train".  So the last week in October I decided to give it a shot. I wasn't dead set on it working, I just thought I'd give it a good try and if it didn't work that was fine, I'd wait til later.  No pressure at all.   The first couple of days it was accident after accident but he got better and better.  He still has some accidents and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little potty trained too....meaning I have to watch how long its been and take him sometimes because he doesn't always tell us until about 1 second before he REALLY needs to go! :)  All in all I'm really proud of him!  Not having to buy him diapers is not the only great thing about being potty trained....here are the other things I love about it...

His unders sticking out of the top of his pants....







whitey tighties and a wife beater....maybe my favorite combo ever!  (he's jumping off the couch, thats why he's blury!)


whitey tighties on little ones may be the CUTEST THING EVER! The big belly and thumb/blanket never hurts the cute factor.  


I have an embarrassing amount of pictures of him on the toilet because of the random things he takes with him to the bathroom.  He cracked me up sitting there with his gun!


underwear wedgies! 


We also LOVE LOVE LOVE how he says "underwear". I have GOT to get it on video...if I do, I'll put it up for you to hear because it will make you melt.

**I hesitate to say potty trainED. I think he's still potty trainING.** We don't have 100% trust in him yet and I think I'll have to trust him a little more before I say potty TRAINED.

If it hadn't been for my amazing sister in law I would have never thought to potty train by 2, but now I think it's the best way to go. You hit them with it before they are old enough to put up much of a fight! Great job Quinn!

I guess I'm behind. I've read 3 posts at once. Kanyon and Quinn are so sweet playing together. There is absolutely nothing like little boy fun!! CONGRATS on potty trainING!! Way to go, Quinn. And, what good "Cagle" cousin wouldn't hold a gun on the toilet? Seriously. We have many, many pictures of Andrew with a gun, including hunting Easter eggs. Never know when you'll need it so always good to be prepared. Jaymie, these boys are so precious. Love watching them grow and learn and play and be boys!! Love you.
