NEWSFLASH: Potty Edition

Nora "peeped" in the potty tonight for the very first time! It was hysterical! I was obnoxiously excited, and she was so proud of herself. We had just come inside from a walk and I was trying to get both kiddos in the tub. I've been randomly setting Nora on the potty a few times a day for a few minutes just to get her more comfortable with sitting on the potty. I keep hoping that one day she'll just go, but I'm not really trying to train her. Well, tonight, she went! I think the bath water running may have helped, but just as I was about to get her off and stick her in the tub she inhaled loudly and says, "I peeping." And, sure enough, she was! I must have said, "I'm so proud of you" a million times because when we called Aunt Amy and the grandparents to tell them, she kept repeating "Proud of you, proud of you." I didn't have any candy or M'n'M's on hand, so I grabbed some chocolate chips as a reward for her. That made her even more excited!

I am so proud of my big girl. Too bad Daddy wasn't home to witness it firsthand, but soon enough we'll be witnessing our girl "peeping" all the time.

Did you do "the pee-pee dance"? If you don't know what I'm talking about, we'll need to give you lessons. There's a song that goes along with it..."Pee-Pee on the Pot-ty! Pee-Pee on the Pot-ty! Pee-Pee on the Pot-ty!"
So proud of Nora!
