Natalie got a gift card to Target from her Grandpa and Grandma Simonson (Mark's dad and stepmom) so we decided to buy her a little potty. Now, I know she's young but I thought we could take it nice and slow and let her sit on it once in a while to get used to the idea, and eventually she would start using it.
This is her proud little self after the big event. I was changing her diaper after her nap and asked her if she wanted to go potty on the toilet. She got all excited so I carried her into the bathroom and sat her down on it. As she was sitting there I made the little "sssss" noise to remind her of the noise she's supposed to make and all of a sudden she was really going! I praised her a lot and she was pleased with herself. I know, it was probably coincidence. But it was still really exciting!
We're not going to push her or anything. She'll learn when she's ready (but hopefully "ready" will be sooner rather than later!). Eventually she'll be able to tell me that she needs to go, and someday we'll start letting her wear underwear. What fun we have to look forward to. :-)
