When my 3 1/2 year old was the same age, I was due in Jan and started potty training hoping to have him out of diapers by the time he was 2. He was the same way, excited one day and not the next and I think I was pushing a little hard because I really wanted him potty trained. Now he is 3 1/2 and is just now fully potty trained. Now my 19 mo old is showing interest in the potty so I have been putting him in underwear. He seems to be backwards from other kids, he will do #2 in the pot but will not go to do #1. My suggestions would be just keep him in underwear and keep changing them if you have to. Don't switch back and forth from underwear to diapers. He will only get confused. Praise him when he does go in the pot and when he doesn't don't make a big deal about it. Just keep taking him in the bathroom every so often and sit him up there for a few minutes. He should eventually get it. Good luck.
