Update...

Pierce is doing great.... We are no longer running around the house naked but now he is wearing big boy underwear. When we go out we are still wearing pull ups (and I know alot of books that I am reading say that is a no no) but we went to the zoo yesterday and I just did not have time for alot of accidents and Pierce did great.... We were there for about 3.5 hours and he asked to use the bathroom 4 times and sure enough all 4 times he had to go... and no accidents... we did get home and he went poo in his pull ups (a minor set back but we are so proud). Today was a little more difficult we had a birthday party this morning and he never asked to go potty.... I saw him pee in the pool about twice and the other time he went in his pull up... alot of distractions going on today....

We are very proud of him and really give God all the glory on this one... Pierce has alot to do with it as well... but I have been asked what my secret is and I don't really have any other than praying about it... I have heard of some nightmares when it comes to potty training and I guess our God (our very gracious God) knew that I could not handle a nightmare with the potty training... public restrooms give me the creeps anyways... Thank YOU!
Wasn't sure if I wanted to post this pic (look a little scandalous) but it is the only pic I have of him with his undies (he just finished his toast here and was drawing) but I do have a funny story...

When Blake and I went to the store to get Pierce his underwear (Pierce was not with us) I wanted them to be some fun underwear that he would like (i.e. spider man, batman, trains, etc.) But we could not find any in his size but we did find the Mr. & Mrs. (descriptive title) character ones... like Mr. Strong, Mr. Wiggly, Mr. Bouncy, Mr. Tickle... Pierce really likes these but I would have much rather the picture of the character and title to be on the back and not the front (if you get my drift).... :-)

oh, funny underwear story! :) Mr. Tickle on underwear?!!?

Pierce is doing great. Potty training is the hardest thing I've faced...especially with my first child. It's all so new and you really have to figure out what works best for you and your child.

Good job mom, dad and pierce....and thank you, God, for Your help!! :)
