So these pics require some explanation! I was in the kitchen on the phone and when I walked around the corner, this is what my eyes beheld!!!! What in the world?!!! Halley had used her potty seat as a step stool to reach the iron that was sitting on top of the washer. (Don't worry...it had been off for several hours.) It was really cute until I noticed that she had tried unsuccessfully to plug the iron in, too, as evidenced by it hanging out the wall! I would have disciplined her in the past for even reaching for the iron, but this was just too cute!
It's been a long time coming, and finally Halley is potty trained! She is 21 months, so I think this is a great accomplishment. You can read my first post about potty training here. I started potty training her around 14 months when she brought me a diaper and wipes and laid on the floor for me to change her. If that's not a sign of readiness, I don't know what is! She has been wearing panties at home for the last 2 weeks and has not had many accidents. My Sweet Love stayed dry all day yesterday, and had one hiccup today. I went in the playroom where she was playing with a friend. The little girl was looking down her pants and said, "she said she boo-booed." Little did Halley's friend know that that's what Halley says to let us know she has to go pee-pee. She started telling us last week when she has to go. Prior to that I just put her on the potty at intervals. I will still put her in pull-ups when we are in public until I feel more comfortable. But, I'm so proud...and thankful not to have to buy anymore pull-ups. We'll be back to diapers by Christmas when the twins arrive...but atleast we won't have 3 children in diapers.
