Brilliant! I never potty trained either of my older two, I bought the underwear and the wee pot and let them decide when to use it. I think it is so much better when they are ready!
I dont blame her on the smelly public loos though, I have refused a few of those myself!
We tried this past week and realized Abby really isnt' ready. She's been waking up dry for a month, but when it comes to actually using the potty, she is resisting. So we put her back in diapers and we'll wait a little longer. At least we dont' have to pay for diapers!
Abby was trying to tell me something in the car earlier today, and I kept telling her I couldn't hear her, so she suddenly piped up "Daddy, turn the radio down" I suppose you wouldn't understand until you have a child this age, but the fact that she can understand these things and verbalize them to us, just amazes me. I love when she says something new and it makes me realize that she is understanding on a new level!

Ava isn't ready for the potty yet. She shows a little interest and some signs, but just isn't there yet. So that's okay. We'll get there at some point. :-)
My brag: Ava doesn't use very many words, she says several more words now; but she doesn't always use them. I always know what she wants, because she is very good at non-verbal communication. She hands me a bowl or a cup when she is hungry, her blanket when she is tired. Etc. So last night she was sitting on my lap and James was playing with Noah. I told her I loved her and I said, "Say I love you Mommy". So she leans in and gives me the biggest kiss and a hug. So I tried it with James. I said "Ava tell Daddy you love him" and she got up and gave him a kiss and a hug. So she associates that with loving her/us. That made me feel so good; that I haven't just told my daughter I love her, I've shown her and she repeats those actions.
