Potty Training...

It is official! Baby girl is officially potty trained for the second time. (Ya! Ya! YA!-Happy Dance all around!) She was potty trained for a full month, and then the tummy bug came to visit the Taylor household and we back tracked a bit. She was having accidents left and right, and it was like just water coming out. She couldn't get to the bathroom in time, and we were having to put her in the tub four or five times a day, so I felt like I had no choice but to put her back in diapers.

And then when it was all over she was afraid to go #2 on the potty. She would still sit down and go #1, but when she could feel the other coming she would start to cry and say her belly was hurting again. It was heart breaking. And after a while nothing seemed to work and it was frustrating. I hate feeling helpless. I even tried to bribe her with a new toy. But, in the end, I had to just back off and not even mention it any more. This last Thursday night she came running in the living room and said come quick I made (poopies) in the potty. And sure enough she had all on her own. I was still a little wary about celebrating just yet, but, we're on our fifth day and no accidents. So Hooray! I feel like the happy dance is in order.

My sweet friend Heidi offered me half a pack of "princess" pull ups she had left over, and I think that helped a lot this last week. Thanks Heidi! Love ya girl! This morning we officially switched over to our princess panties. Ya! It will be nice to have a diaper free household. I can think of a lot of things I can do with that extra little bit of money every month. I hope everyone is having some small successes in their life today that is worth celebrating! Blessings!
