BROOKLYN PEED ALL BY HERSELF IN HER POTTY!!! i'm kinda freaking out right now because this is so so so exciting. I never thought I would be so excited about PEE! haha So we have had this little sit down potty for a while that she has used a few times. It's a princess potty and it plays songs when you pee haha but we decided to get one for the actual toilet too since that is what she is going to be using eventually. Anyways today she took a bath and we put the cushion thing on the toilet and she loved it. She sat for like 15 min and she NEVER sits still for any period of time so that was super exciting. After 15 min she decided she was done but i decided to put panties on her for some reason? I dunno... anyways I brought out the princess potty in our living room and figured she could get used to both of them and if she ever used it then great!!! After about a half hour of asking her if she needed to go and her saying no constantly I decided to do some dishes- i figured if she went then I could explain where she needed to go. I gave her some milk and started doing the dishes. I heard her opening and closing the potty seat and the music going off but it some times does it if she's playing with it so I didn't even go check. A couple minutes later she brought me her sipi cup lid and said mess. So she took me to show me she had spilt milk on the floor she pointed and said mess , uh oh. I said its Ok and THEN I SAW IT! there was PEE IN THE POTTY!!! i said BROOKLYN DID YOU GO PEE PEE IN THE POTTY! and she looked and said uh oh mess. and i had to tell her good job like 30 times before she realized what she did was good!! haha then she got excited!! I took a picture and sent it to ammon and then called my parents to tell them. I'm just impressed that she went and sat down by herself to go to the bathroom!! YAY!! so maybe its time to start potty training?!?!? who knows but that was pretty much awesome and made my day! Sorry this is so long about pee but i'm sure parents that have kids potty trained understand how amazing this is :) and she's only 18 months!!!
