This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.

We're Getting There

We are making progress in the potty department. After one potty chair, two potty seats and a potty watch we finally are going pee pee on the potty.....periodically. He'll get it eventually and just like everything else, he'll do it when he's ready.

I love you big guy and am so proud of you!!!!!!!

BIG BOY!!! :)

Potty training was so hard with my girls. They weren't completely trained until they were 4 and a few months. It's tough with preemies...and i wish i had more patience with them. I was not the most patient while waiting for them to "get it" (Lord forgive me for those times) ;)

My son, however, got it in a few days (just after turning 3) and has only had 2 accidents since (he's 4).

It'll come when it's time for them to get it!

We're in the same boat (potty?) as you guys. Hallie is quite good at sitting on the potty as long as it does not take her away from a preferred activity and, over the past two days, is beginning to even let us know (sometimes) when she needs to go. However, she often lets us know a bit after she REALLY needs to go.

Anyway, I really appreciate your point about not forcing the issue. We've owned a stable of potties for about a year and a half, maybe longer now and it's only in the last couple of weeks that we've made any progress on them. I am SO glad we didn't try to compel her to do this according to some artificial daycare-driven timetable. That's the great thing about having schools that appreciate our kids' special needs (and special talents, too!)

Anyway, hopefully both John and Hallie will be fully trained by summer's end!
