A very fulfilling day!
Well, I have been waiting for this day since May. Ellie is so great at going pee pee on the potty, but has always been terrified of going #2. She holds it all day till I put a diaper on her for nap time or at night. I tried a couple of times to let her sleep in undies, but she has not been ready and it is a huge wet mess. I preferred the nap over the other! She woke up this morning and said I go in the potty! She tried for a really long time and then we all went out for a jog. We came home and she tried again with success! I got teary eyed because we have talked about this for months. We often pray for her to go in the potty and or pray during the act. She has known for months that the day she goes #2 in the potty that she could go to the toy store to pick out a toy. We celebrated Ellie all morning today as Mike had lots of errands for work to do so we went along. She loved getting to pick out something just for her. She picked some new paint and some markers/notepad. The Dr. told me not to push it and when she is ready she would do it. Ellie has always been this way in that she will do it when she wants to and to force it is just awful. I have been so excited all day for her and I think it is because of all the work that had gone into this potty training moment. I'm hoping Anna will be much easier. I think she will as she already loves to "act" like she is going potty. Sorry to inform you all of such boring info, but it was a big deal at our house!
