Potty Training..

This last week has been a "crazy" uneventful week.  It's been cold out, so we haven't ventured out much, but INSIDE, we have been working hard.

Since our company left, I went full force on the potty training with Addison, which ended up not being too hard. Thank you Lord! As much as I hated buying double the diapers $$, potty training was [i thought] going to be even more painful. However, Addison has been ROCKING the "P-T"! I have only changed one dirty diaper since we started over a week ago... and that was on day 2. She has even been wearing big girl panties for a couple days now and hardly needs to be reminded to go potty...with minimal accidents! Granted, she spends a lot of time on the potty, but bless her little heart, she even dumps the bucket and flushes it.  And, she is very good at it. [But only when she sneaks in there and I don't catch her in time to do it myself]

And... she has been staying dry during naps! I'm sure she'll appreciate all this info being shared with everyone years from now. But today, when she goes on the potty, you better believe it's a family shared event! She runs out into the living room and screams! "Come See!" and then excitedly points and grins from ear to ear [with pants around her ankles]. Ugh, is she not the cutest thing ever!!!! I'm so so PROUD of her!

So, here is my PT Diva playing with her babies. I wrapped a scarf around her like a Moby Wrap that I have for Tyler, and she carried her baby around with appropriate winter head gear for both of them!

Way to go Addi, but I must say I'm a little jealous as my son STILL WILL NOT POOP IN THE POTTY! AHHHHHHHH I think it's out of sheer stubbornness!

I am so jealous...Tyler has been going through days of going on the potty and then he won't go on the potty for a week....it is so frustrating! WTG on getting Addison to train early!
