Lately since Luke has become so mobile (walking ALL over the place) I have caught him on his way to the bathroom on a few occasions. We have always used the small potty in the bathroom. I tried once to do it in the living room, but its just too distracting for him to go anywhere but the bathroom. Well, he does enjoy a good pee outside but as far as in house locations, it's only the bathroom.
There were a couple times where we were in the living room and he just took off down the hall for no reason. The first time he made it down the hall but then stopped. I came over, looked in his diaper and sure enough, he peed. The next time he was diaper free. He crawled like he was going somewhere down the hall then stopped and peed. I think he knew he had to go, but just couldn't make it all the way in there.
When we were at his grandparents he has made his way in the bathroom on two occasions. The first time he went in there, he had just peed about 5 minutes earlier, so just a little dribble came out in his diaper and he was done with it. The next time I thought, well I'll just see if that was the reason he went into the bathroom. I held him over the potty and sure enough, he had to go.
Just recently he pointed to the bathroom while we were sitting in our room. He had to go then too. Though, he has pointed to the bathroom other times when he hasn't had to go. (he really likes to point)
I know I still have a ways to go before he's 'potty trained'. But I'm not even sure what that really means. He goes most days with only wetting diapers at night (because I'm too lazy or tired to get up and take him) or he wets diapers when he's busy playing or at a new place. But when we go out, more and more I just leave him in his training pants. I think I'm becoming more and more confident about him just wearing training pants instead of a diaper and a lot of times I wonder why I'm carrying around so many diapers.
I know it'll still be a while but EC is so amazing. I can't believe how far we've come.
