Sophie's Sweet Success


We began potty training Sophie last week, and I really had no idea how it was going to go.  I held off doing it for a long time because I knew that she hadn't really figured out how to feel when she had to go to the bathroom before now and I wanted to wait until she was ready.  But I couldn't have ever guessed how easy it would be and how great she would do!  She was a champ right from the very first day!  She probably had a total of 3 accidents over the next 4 days, but she hasn't had one accident since and is doing so awesome!  I am so proud of her and so relieved (yes, pun intended :D) that we've conquered this!  Okay, that was a lot of exclamation points, but I am such a happy mama right now.  I don't even mind the constant bum-wiping and hand-washing that accompanies this, because I'll take that any day over diaper changes (and paying for all those diapers).  Sophie is very proud of herself and shouts "wahoo!" every time she successfully goes in the potty...still.  She also shows off her Tinkerbell and Princess underwear to more people than I care to admit.  It's fun to see her so happy about accomplishing this big milestone.  Great job, Sophie Girl!  You did awesome and we love you!

Congrats, you are now saving somewhere around $40 a month in diapers, think of it as a raise for yourself and get a pedicure, at least thats what I intend to do when Ike is trained, which is a very very very long ways away. Oh yes and I love this picture.

That's great news! I'm trying to get Jack to start the whole potty training thing too. Let's see if he's just as successful! (:
