potty training

I was NOT ready for this development, but Hailey is constantly saying she needs to use the potty. As I mentioned in an earlier post, she went once (#2), coincidentally at school. Well that was until Thursday. She went #1 in the potty, then proceeded to do it again on Friday, Saturday and Sunday! She only did it once each day, and does not always ask to use the potty, usually just when she wakes up in the morning and between dinner and bath time.

I am still not expecting her to be completely potty trained any time soon, and I'm not going to push her on it yet, but this is pretty cool... it's at least nice to see her do it sometimes instead of just sitting there! And hey, if she's potty trained in a month or two, PARTY! No more diapers, EVER!

Of course I make a HUGE deal about it when she goes, and she tells everyone in the house that she did it. So funny. We will see where this goes...

Go Hailey-- way exciting for everyone!! TOO funny. I was just about to blog about Jonah's potty experiences lately. We aren't big on pushing him into doing it anytime soon either, just when he's up for using it(especially since he's a boy), but Saturday he went #1 in the potty all day. Rock on! We can party together... except, you get to party a little harder since you'll be saying Hasta la Vista to diapers for good!! LUCKYYYYYY!

I knew that Hailey would learn to go potty early! She is very smart and talented! The way to do it is to let the child be the guide and no pushing is required. Go with the flow, literally. It is much easier that way. Oh, and she can "string together beads." She focuses very well.
