I laid down on the sofa facing him and talked to him until he woke up. He finally got up, grabbed Shirt from me, and then climbed up on my back and laid down. It was very sweet. My mom reported that he had been like that all day. Poor baby.
We headed home without incident, which was a nice treat for me. He wanted me to carry him the whole way to the car, and rested his head on my shoulder. He wasn't running a fever, in fact, he was a little cool feeling. Maybe that's why he was so cuddly.
He was so pathetic when we got home. He took off his coat, walked down the hall, and then just laid down on the two steps that lead up to our living room. I came over to sit next to him, but ended up laying on the floor with him. He curled up next to me and we snuggled for about half an hour. I feel bad that he wasn't feeling well, but I loved cuddling up with him. It was worth laying on the floor for.

As far as the potty training comments. We haven't been having much luck with that. We have managed to get him to put his doll Jake on the potty, but that's it. If we even mention sitting on the potty he gets upset. We made the mistake of trying to bribe him to sit on the potty, which resulted in tears. That's not really the direction we want this to go.
So, for now we just talk about the potty, model using the potty, and put the doll on the potty. When Michael needs to do his business, he goes and hides in the basement closet. When he's done, we change his diaper. I'm hoping that with continued exposure and a little more maturity, he will start to take interest in using the potty. If not, we'll just install a potty in the basement closet.
