Potty Training: Week 2

We are so proud of Lily. She is a stellar potty pee-er. She had even been holding it all night (or shouting out, "Mama! Potty!" at 2 a.m.), but now that we're on vacation, she's using her pull-up at night, and thankfully, we're all getting a little more shut-eye.

She loves using the potty. It's an especially wonderful stall tactic before bed or in the middle of the night when she doesn't want to go in her crib. "More poop!" Yet somehow, sure enough, there's always more! So we have to believe her every time she tells us what she has to do (she's very specific), and we have to believe her when she adamantly refuses to sit on the potty, even though I'm sure by now she MUST have to go. But when she does, she tells us, and sure enough, she stays dry until then. Little girl can HOLD it like nobody's business.

She's still in pull-ups during the day, since I didn't want to worry about her having an accident at Grandma and Grandpa's. But I needn't have worried, because she hasn't peed in one yet.

My mom was so proud of her that she went bought her the cutest package of little girl underwear. She presented them to Lily and Lily's eyes lit up as she exclaimed, "Nice! So nice!" It doesn't take much to make her happy ;)
