We are officially out of diapers!

Yep, you heard that correctly. We are, and have been, out of the diaper stage! I really thought the day would never come. Elijah is such an easy going kid, much like his father, and when we tried to potty train him around his 2nd birthday last March-April he took to it quickly, but then began to back track and potty in his underwear ALL the time. So we decided to wait a few months and give it another try.
I was hoping that we could have him potty trained before the new year, but uhhh, with all the moving and changes we opted out and waited.

We officially started potty training on the 18th of January! Elijah was 2 years and (within a few days) 10 months old. We had built up for nearly a month that one that specific day he would be wearing only underwears (as he calls them). It really has surprised both Justin and I at how well he has done this. Of course we've had some bumps, but for the most part he'll go many days without accidents. A few weeks ago we stopped doing diapers at night too!

So our household is officially diaper free! I couldn't be more excited!

Aren't those buns so cute in little Walle underwears!?
