Happy news on the Petey front. It just started clicking for the boy this week. No more accidents (of any kind) in the house or going down the stairs. In fact – he’s even started holding it until we get out of our front garden area and going out on the curb. (Important to me, b/c using the same spot in the garden smells the walkway up a bit, and I want to be a good neighbor.) I was picking my battles and not even trying to get him to do this, b/c he was having such a hard time figuring out that the stairs and lobby were off-limits, that I just wanted to praise him for going anywhere outside.
Taking that into account and the fact that he’s being a good boy unsupervised in the apartment w/ free reign, and I just feel like – voila! – it took as long as it took, and now he’s suddenly gotten down the routine and figured it out for himself how things work. I’m so proud of him (and happy to have gotten to this easier phase).
