Please notice that Stella is not wearing pants in this picture --- that's because she just WENT POTTY in her little potty. She is 18 1/2 months old. I don't know if it's going to be a regular thing just yet ,but it's a start.
After she went potty Stella helped Tom clean the potty and then put it back. She is VERY proud of her new potty.
Here's the story of why we have the potty.
Lately Stella has been showing some interest in the potty and it really hit home this weekend when she saw Deacon go potty when we were in Little Rock. So, we had to go to Babies R Us while we were there and I decided to grab a potty.
We set it up Sunday night. At first Stella just liked playing with it, but then she put it in the bathroom.
Well, today she was playing with Tom and said poo-poo and was pointing to her diaper. Tom took her to the potty and she WENT! We were so excited. I would show you the proof in the potty, but I don't want to gross you out!
I still can't believe it. I told Tom that I don't know if I'm ready to start the potty training phase of life yet. Ha! Public restrooms...no thanks!
But Stella is SO proud of herself. We had to run a quick errand this evening and she just kept talking abut the potty. She even said Geeken (aka Deacon) potty, so I'm convinced seeing him spiked her interest in the potty. Thanks Geeken!
Anyway, we'll see how this goes. Like I said I'm in no hurry, but at least we've introduced the potty.
