adventures in potty land

We have been potty training Austin for what seems like forever (maybe 1 1/2-2 months). We can't use pull ups because he treats them like diapers and just pees in them so we are stuck using regular underwear so when he has an accident it gets pretty messy. Accidents have been getting less mostly when he is occupied by some activity. We noticed he has woken up from nap time and bed time, so we thought we would try to acknowledge this, so we told him if he wakes up without peeing in his diaper than he can pee in colors. We put food coloring in the potty most of the times it is blue so he can see the color change to green. Believe it or not it has worked so much so that to our dislike Austin woke up screaming at about 630am (he usually gets up anytime from 8-840) saying "I have to pee on potty". I ran upstairs and there he was diaper at the other end of the room dry, bed dry ready to pee in the potty. Although it is taken longer than we expected we are or should say Austin is making progress.
