Sittin’ and a pottin’

Posted on: March 17, 2009

For several months now, we’ve s-l-o-w-l-y been potty training Mabel. There’s no pressure and I try to make it as easy-going and fun as possible. She seems to really be enjoying herself and gets a big kick our of the whole process. 

Well, last week I was sitting on the couch going through the mail, when Julia came up, grabbed my hand and began pulling (she’s learned to do this recently when she wants me to “follow” her). I got up, thinking she wanted me to play, when she lead me to the bathroom. She started pointing to the potty and grunting. I took off her diaper, sat her on the seat and lo and behold, she pooped and peed!! Can I just say, I am one proud mama?!? 

I realize we’ve still got a ways to go, but what a great first step. Makes me think our goal of being diaper free by November/December is pretty realistic.

Sorry, can't figure out how to flip the image. But you can still tell, she's pretty proud of herself.
