Francis was born on Friday, May 27, 2011. We came home from the hospital on Sunday. On Monday, we got our first catch in the potty. Well, in the bathroom at least. I'll admit that my aim wasn't too great having never pottied a boy before. This is how that event ended;
So the first toilet trip was a bit messier than anticipated, but we were thrilled we'd picked up on his signal. A mere 4 days old and he'd successfully peed and pooped (mostly) in the potty. Our first catch with him was even sooner than his sister (5 days old) but both were very exciting. Within 24 hours, we'd had another 4 successful trips with him and 3 of those times, he'd had a dry, clean diaper. I always feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment when the diaper is dry.
This begins our journey with Elimination Communication with Francis.
