Poop problem solved

Thanks to all of your helpful suggestions (christi, jen, tiffany, & leah) regarding Charlie's tub-pooping issues, I think I've come up with a good solution. I have come to realize that the problem was all in my timing, which always seemed to coincide with the timing of Charlie's, uh, #2 potty needs. So, the solution for now is: time the baths for immediately AFTER he does his duty. So far, it has been successful! And, according to my favorite, live-in Behavior Specialist, it's a great "antecedent intervention"...whatever that means.
(It's also helpful to play movies on the ipod while he's sitting on the pot - keeps the wiggles at bay.)

And, they say lightning never strikes twice, but Charlie once again fell asleep in the car and STAYED asleep as I carried him into the house. Is this some great new stage? I could stare at this child for hours while he's asleep - I love it!
