Down with Diapers!

Last night was such an exciting night in the Maxwell household...Bailey pee-peed in the potty!!! TWICE! Before bath time I always have her sit on her potty just to get used to it. Last night she sat there for about 5 minutes and when I told her she could go ahead and take her bath she stood up, and then peed! Oh well, no use crying over pee on the floor. After a longer than normal bath I asked her if she wanted to try and sit on the potty again and she said yes, and it wasn't 30 seconds later that she peed! I know I literally jumped up and down, I didn't really expect her to do anything. I was so excited and clapping, and she was clapping and squealing.
Nick had a soccer game last night and was supposed to be home a little after 8:00, so we decided to let Bailey stay up a little past her bedtime so he could see her. Well, a little after 8:00 turned into almost 9:00! But I had already decided as long as she wasn't losing her mind she could stay up so daddy could tell her how proud he was of her. Well, right before he got home I was asking her if she was going to tell daddy that she had pee-peed in the potty, and she took off running to the bathroom saying "potty, potty!" So I followed her in there, she got on the potty and peed again! The jumping and clapping and hugging started all over again!
This morning when I got her up I asked her if she wanted to go sit on the big girl potty, she went running, and peed again! (We have one of the convertible potty seats and last night she had peed in her potty) We tried pooping on it this morning, but she wasn't having any of that. The potty seat went to grammy's with her this morning, so hopefully she'll keep up the good work today.

Woo hoo! You made it look WAY too easy. I can barely get Colin to even sit on the potty with his clothes on, let alone naked.
