My kid is AWESOME!!!!!!!

It will be 2 weeks today that she asked for her dora undies and decided she only wanted to use the potty!!!!!!

She doesn't even have wet fuzzi bunz in the morning!!!


To continue the brag...She'll even use a public potty...(except a SUPER smelly one we tried this morning.)

Okay now make me feel better about bragging by adding one of your own!!

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!

That's great!

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.

*thank you mom2*lauryn*jacob* for my adorable siggy!*
