Bye Bye Diaper Day!

Well, I feel like we have been saying this oh since about April! We traveled so much this summer that it was nearly impossible to stay consistent with p.t.. Ellie has her own little personality and for sure her own time table of when she is ready for things.  I can say that we enjoyed the paci till she was 2 1/2 and diapers till she is almost 3 (next week)! We just got her big girl bed and she never has tried to climb out of her crib. However, I can tell that now she is totally ready for both. She stayed dry all morning and was very excited. When I tried before she screamed every time I tried to sit her on the potty when we were out. We still enjoyed quite the experience of going potty in Target, but it was cause Anna is pulling everything out and touching who knows what while I was holding Ellie. Anna is a totally different personality. She's fearless and has done everything very early. I'm hoping it will be the same with p.t.. This morning Ellie said "Anna go potty to" and Anna always is pulling on her clothes when she sees Ellie. I put Ellie on the big potty and Anna on the little potty. Anna went right away and immediately started clapping. She also requested and m&m like her sister. She's one smart girl. She also has figured out how to climb up onto a chair and then onto the table. These girls are keeping me busy, but I love to see them grow. God is so good to me for their health and sweet spirits. Tonight, is bye bye crib night! More to come.....

Wow, what a big day for big-girl Ellie!

I'm terrified of potty training. I don't even know where to start.

And I'm so impressed with Anna going to the potty (and don't you dare forget those treats). Way to go, girls!

Yeah Ellie! Zeke is way more interested earlier on, since he watched Areyna Potty Train. Hopefully it'll be a quick thing for you=)

i'm so impressed with Anna's potty ability! i've always heard that if the younger sibling is the same gender they potty train in half the time!!! how did the big girl bed work out???

SO crazy: our Anna Bell went potty for the first time today!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I guess that's the advantage of watching their older siblings.
Hope the bed transition is going well.
We too are FINALLY getting the potty thing down with Joshua: it's the out and about part that I have just avoided for way too long: the ordeal of taking them both into public restrooms everywhere we go just really grosses me out.
