She did it!!!

So, all day and all night yesterday S had NO accidents!  She woke up dry & peed on the potty (as usual) after she first got up.

Then, after breakfast, I put her on the potty AND SHE POOPED ON THE POTTY!!!!  And she was really proud of herself and I was ridiculously excited :)

I hope so much that this week solidifies all the work we have been doing to get this potty training thing down!

Alyssa & Shelly,

she has been going on the big potty the whole time, shelly meant to add a little potty seat to the big potty because she knows I haven't been using one, i just put her on the big potty. And, I agree with shelly, it may have helped, but I think I want to stick with how I have been doing it because she is finally getting it. :)

i think the biggest problem is really that she is just learning to talk. when she came here she only said like 4 words and now she can say so many but reverts back to old behavior when she wants something. Trying to get her to tell me she has to go potty is quite interesting and hard to do. And, I have to fess up - now that I remember it happening - that she did tell me in Hobby Lobby that she had to pee and when last Saturday too. That was a big deal too :)

Thanks for the advice guys!

SO hopefully I will be able to get thru seeing all the blogs. You are doing such a great job with S and I love how you protect her so good. I can't believe that they tried to do that, but then it is them :[ Love you and hope to see you soon.
