Big Day!

Today has just been filled with surprises in our family!

Today, Ellie told me she needed to go potty so we took her diaper and shorts off and went to sit on the potty. Nothing and then we went to the kitchen and she found some malted milk balls. We took her and them back to the potty and I left her in there to "do her business". A few minutes later I heard the music in the potty start up. I didn't want to get TOO excited because last time that happened, she had just put powder in the potty to set off the activation sensors.

This time, however, her potty had pee pee in it!! WHOOP WHOOP!!! Go Ellie!! We made a big deal (and pictures -- she will DIE one day over this!) of it.



THEN, tonight, while Kevin was giving her her bath, she said, "UH-OH -- POO POO" and started pointing to the potty. He took her out and set her on it and she went to poop there!! BIG GIRL!!! We all had to run upstairs and clap.

Sad, that one of the highlights of my day involves clapping over poop, isn't it?

That's not sad...that's exciting! If only Caleb would follow suit! I'm tired of changing diapers. I'll try the candy thing...

I think it's fabulous!!!


sec. word: thingad--as in, "That tick that bit me must have been a booger...That thingad some TEETH!"

Hooray for her! I so wish we could get G. to take the potty seriously. He is 4 now and will not cooperate, be bribed, or anything else.

I'll play Lori's game. My word is "undshned", as in "Maria is working hard to undshned some pounds!"

Oh the joys of parenting!
