Potty update

Potty training is by no means completed, but we are making progress. Abby wears panties all day at daycare and (so far) hasn't had an accident in them. And EVERY DAY since Sunday she has gone in the potty for me. Granted, she's still wetting her pull ups some, but when she says she wants to go (she takes me by the hand and walks me to the bathroom) she ends up peeing. WOOOO HOOOOO

And some new words...she said "Aunt Kirsten" the other day when Kirsten was over. Her other new words/phrases include:
"Hopey" (my sister)
"Where's it at?" (I told her not to end a sentence with a preposition, but we're still learning...haha)
"Bawpaw" (Grampa)
And she has FINALLY starting saying "please" instead of using the sign language.

I can't believe how fast these babies grow up....

Yea for Abby!! Glad she is doing so well! I hope she trains fast. I've heard girls are easier than boys...I sure hope so! Lol.

SO very cool about the potty training! That's amazing! Go Abby!! How exactly is the daycare provider doing it? Is she just taking all of them every 20 mins or so? I'm curious as I kinda want to start (just to see how it goes) once all of our summer trips are over with.

That's great that Janet is really helping and leading with it. I've heard a lot of bad stories about how it takes forever w/some kids b/c their daycare provider won't stick to their plan! ugh. GO ABBY for going SIX TIMES yesterday! I'm so impressed! Do you give her treats for sitting on the potty every hour (or does Janet?) or just when she 'goes' or not at all? I can't seem to convince Sophie to interrupt her playing that often w/o a promise of M&Ms, so I've kinda just been letting her ask or tell me and then giving her the treats if she 'goes.'
