Twelve Hours, No Accidents!

Oliver is getting to be a pro at using the potty! If I set him on there and he doesn't have to go, he whines and says, "Up!" If he has to pee, he starts focusing and pees within seconds.

Today, he had *no* accidents from 7am to 7pm! Twice, when he had to pee, he went into the bathroom himself and set his potty seat on the toilet.

The hardest times to get him to go are when he's waking up. When he wakes up, he's crabby and wants to be held. He will scream if we put him down, even on the potty. So, we keep his overnight diaper on him for an additional hour after he wakes up. This is why his potty training doesn't start until 7am.

Oliver has napped for two days in a row with just undies on, and he had no accidents either time. When he wakes up, he won't sit on the potty, but he will hold it for another 20-30 minutes until he's ready to sit on the potty. I'm fine with that, but I'm also paranoid that he's going to pee on me during that window.
