Potty Time!

We purchased Courtney a Princess potty from Target about a month or so ago. We set it up in the guest bathroom and were just hoping to get her used to the potty and what you use it for. A few weeks in, one morning I asked her if she wanted to go pee pee on the potty. She said yes and I followed her to the bathroom. I got her all set up on the potty and after a minute or so I hear this music playing. It took me a minute to realize that she was peeing. No her pee doesn't make music, but her potty does when she goes. I was so proud. This has only happened one time so far.

I've been bringing her into the bathroom with me so she understands that we go in the potty too. Now she is obsessed with sitting on the big potty. Luckily her Princess potty has a seat that comes off and hooks onto the big potty.

We aren't expecting any miracles here, but we thought it wouldn't hurt to get her used to the potty early. Her new daycare is wonderful and has said to just let them know when we want her to start working with her on the potty at daycare. Isn't that great?

Look at my big girl!

The Toddlers Creed

If I want it,

If I give it to you and change my mind later,

If I can take it away from you,

If it's mine it will never belong to anybody else,
No matter what.
If we are building something together,
All the pieces are mine!

If it looks just like mine,

If it breaks or needs putting away,

We are at this point now. Yay us!

Then and Now

This time last year, Courtney was 5 months. Remember this?

Now she is a walking, talking 17 month old toddler that looks nothing like her mommy and all like her daddy.

Like her Bieber hair style?
