The potty continues to be elusive. I am convinced that Jacob has not yet developed the motor control necessary to effectively respond to the sensation of having to go. This morning Jacob took his own "night-night dipey" off and threw it in the diaper pail. Then we forgot to put on a Pull-Up. Jacob told me he had to go poop so I put him on the potty and he went pee. Then an hour or so later, he said he had to go poop again. But as he was walking towards the bathroom, I saw something strange in the hallway. It was no more than a few inches tall and quite sturdy, but ominously brown. Poop. Anyways, the fact that Jacob went without wearing a Pull-Up and told me he had to go two times this morning is the most progress we have had in two years. His muscles are beginning to work for him, the motor control will come.
