YIIIPPPPPEEEEEEEEE!

Eden went poop in the potty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited I can barely contain myself! Lucky for me there are about 1,000 of you out there to share my excitement with!

She told me three times today that she needed a "diaper change." I could tell she had to go, so I tried twice to put her on the potty. The third time, just after dinner, she actually said "poo poo potty, let's go, RUN!" We had a huge potty party after, which she thought was AWESOME and very "fun." She was VERY proud of herself, and needless to say, we were very proud of her!

So, Eden...this is for YOU! (Thanks Melanie and Jacqui for the idea:) Holland and Eden could seroiusly watch this 100 times!)



Update (1/14): She did it again today by golly! On the first try!

Billie,

I've spent the last few days reading your amazing journey, and I'm so happy to have made your acquaintance! You and your family are such an inspiration to me. I told you more about myself by signing your guest book, but I wanted to say again a big THANK YOU for sharing your thoughts and feelings with total strangers. This often frustrated and confused, but also grateful mom of preemie twins is so happy to have someone to identify with.

And congratulations, Eden! You're awesome!

Awesome news! (Now, can Eden chat with my nearly-four-year-old CG, who insists "Big kids are SUPPOSED to wear diapers!"??)

Sarah Furlough said...

Way to go Eden!

It's hard though isn't it? Dealing with 3 year old bladders and getting them to the potty really quickly. In pure craziness, I even left the home today without Moo in a nappy. Gosh, it could have gone so wrong.

Jacqui

ps - i was just following Melanie's lead. I could watch the hippo a million times too.

Kathryn said...

Woohooo!!!!! Go Eden! That is so great. ;)

well done Eden

thought you might enjoy the video i made when my (then) 3 (!) year old FINALLY went on the potty. She was a 25 weeker and has always done things late... she is now 4 and doing really really well.
