Some of you may have followed my worries (panics!) over ds's potty training....well, with lots of help from his new nusery, he's out of nappies at last! He's three and a half and so proud of his big boy pants, doesn't want to wear nappies during the day anymore and has done nearly all his wees and poos on the loo or his potty, and his accidents are just due to misjudging how long he can hold on.
We just went out for a long ride on his new buggy board (which he adores) and had an extremely civilised lunch together in a cafe, discovered he loves stilton cheese, and had beautiful manners. He has settled really well at nursery and he just adores his new sister and bestows beautifully gentle kisses and cuddles on her, and even strokes her head while I'm feeding her. It is extremely moving to watch, I think. So I'm just bursting with pride about him, and need someone to tell - especially as my mum is away!

Congratulations aloha - you've worked really hard with this and deserve all the accolades that your DS does. . The new nursery sounds better in attitude than the last one. Burst with pride and congratulate yourself too.

Aloha - that sounds lovely:0 What a clever little chappie

Its so nice to hear that things are going well with DS and DD - you had such an awful start last time round; it sounds like you are having the experience you deserve this time

You sound so happy aloha - can this be the person who was once worried about having another baby because she didn't want to dilute the love she felt for ds? It just makesyou love them all the more when you see how much love they can give to a new baby doesn't it?

I feel terribly proud of him too. Gorgeous, gorgeous boy.

Prufrock, thanks and yes, I did worry that it would be hard for ds to have another baby. Now I feel I have given him a fantastic gift. Long may it continue like this!
I am so glad I got calming words of wisdom from Mumsnetters when panicking over ds's eternal nappies... you were all right!

It's lovely when the need for nappies stops and the civilised meal times begin

Aloha, what a wonderful post! Your DS sounds fantastic - your DD is a lucky little girl to have such a fab big bro

My kinda boy. Well done little Aloha boy.

Ah that's great news Aloha on both fronts (less Stilton to go round for the rest of us though . Just wait til they are playing Ambushes at bathtime and laughing at each other so loudly you can't hear yourself swear

Aw, lovely post. Way to go Alohaboy! You are in danger of making motherhood sound blissful, Aloha - get a grip

Great news and Marina is right. IME it will happen in a scarily short time. DD is only 10 months and she is forever winding DS up to naughty tricks at bathtimes and mealtimes. And her very favourite ever thing to do is play rough with him. I feel a bit guilty for reminding him that he has to be gentle when she is anything else but gentle herself! Its so lovely though when it all feels as though it fits together and you've got this lovely little family.

Excellent news Aloha, you have done so well and ds has done so well (believe me I know!). I'm glad he is settled at nursery now. You have inspired me to have another go at potty training . If you have any tips I would appreciate them.

I'm so pleased Aloha! I remember joining in on one of the potty training threads - our ds1 is 3 years 3 months and still nowhere near - so you've given me hope!!

How lovely that everything is falling into place, Aloha. I can feel your radiance from here!
