As he is rounding the corner to 3 1/2 it seems like he is starting take the first steps toward using the toilet. Since Lili potty trained herself before she was two we are truly in uncharted territory. He went #2 on the big potty a few nights ago and we went next door to borrow some ice cream to celebrate. But it's been days with no repeat celebration. It is so hard to be patient. I know it's coming, it is just a tad bit slower than I would prefer.
