She did it!


She might potty train herself. Alexis loves to be naked. She will strip her clothes off the second she wets in her diaper, she hates being wet. Today she took off her clothes and I guess really thought that she was going to be grant the privilege of jumping on the couch nude. Nope I got her some panties to wear and she immediately said "Potty, potty!" So we got her potty and she sat down. Now normally if she does go it is a few drops and then she jumps up runs away and finishes the job on the floor, not today. She jumped up and declared "Potty" I looked and sure enough she had gone so I cheered and congratulated her and then she sat down again and went a whole bunch. I made sure that it was a big deal and we clapped and danced. She got to flush the toilet and everything. She is struggling a little since then with dribbles, but it was a huge thing that she went on her own! I am not pushing her I only encourage her since she is a streaker and I might as well. So who knows she might just be mostly trained by her birthday in a month. I think it is going to be harder for me because the most feared part is public restrooms I find it so scary to take a toddler in them to touch things. I may just stay home for the next year until she is older....haha I wish. I got out the new panties and she tried each one on! Britt had her turn around to model them and she turned until she got dizzy. She is so super duper smart. If you have any tips that worked with your kids let me know I might try them out.

4 lil' notes:

I don't claim to be an expert- but don't use pull-ups! I thought they were a life saver but instead they just prolonged the process of potty training all together! That would be all I have to offer. Even after 4 girls, the only thing other than the pull-up problem that I've learned, is they are all different and they know when they're ready! Good luck!

Yea! Potty Training is suppose to be easier with a girl. I hope it is true because my next two are girls. Eliza was ready a couple of months ago, but I wasn't becuase I was watching Jessie's baby every day for 8 hours. So I will watch and try again soon. If Alexis is ready....go for it!

YEAH!! WAAHOO!! Let's see, with Tillie we let her pick out some bulk candy and everytime she went she got to have one, she was a breeze! Gabe was harder but we bought a TON of pez dispensers and refills, he got a whole refill every time he went. Jack was a nightmare, so we won't go there! Good Luck!

Looks like big girl panties for Alexis for her birthday will be a good choice! Way to go Alexis!!!
