Madilyn is Potty Trained!

I didn't think that I would be posting this for a while but Madilyn decided finally that she was ready to be potty trained. I've found that pushing a child when they are not ready to potty train is not worth it at all! So we've been waiting (mostly patiently) and finally on Thursday, July 7 Madi came in from swimming and when I was getting her dressed she said she wanted to wear big girl panties. From then on she was pretty good. While we were gone for the weekend she had a hard time but on Monday she woke up and has only had 1 accident since. She has done awesome! I don't even have to remind her to go. Half the time I hear her yelling, "I did it!" and she has gone all by herself! I think she just had to figure everything out first. She is just like her daddy in that way: Assess the situation, figure out how to make it work, perfect it in your head, and then pretty much perfectly preform it! She was the same way with crawling and walking.

Madilyn got to choose her potty toy and she chose this Strawberry Shortcake house. She loves it! We are so proud of you Madi! WAY TO GO!!!

Potty training is a tough job, Camber was a bit stubborn too, but we learned from pushing Alissa that's not a good idea, she had accidents every once in a while a long time after she was trained (not now of course) :)

I think Anna is going to be the same way. She knows what's going on and tells me when it's going, but refuses to go near the potty. I am having a hard time being patient about it though!
