It's a Monumental Day!

As you can see from this picture, Lincoln is learning how to be a big boy now. I bought him his very own toilet seat today, in which he could not have cared less. We came home, I plopped him on the seat & I acted like it was the best thing in the universe. This, in case you were wondering, involved me jumping up & down in the bathroom, clapping my hands, & hollering "Yea for the Big Boy Potty!"

I'm not sure if this is "official potty-training business", but it is an official introduction to it. I'm completely clueless on how to do this, but I do sit down next to him, read him his favorite books, & offer a cookie for any trickle I may hear. And sure enough, about five minutes into his book, a trickle I heard. Nilla Wafers are a great thing. Then came the pride. I made such a big deal out of it that he thought he was pretty cool. So now he never wants to get off the thing. I guess that's better than never wanting to get on, right?

Talk to you soon. In the meantime, wish me potty luck.
