Potty Party

Will the little girl in the big girl panties please stand up?


Yes, it's true. Holland is officially potty-trained! If you remember, she was a little slow coming out of the gate, but she just completed day five with no pull-ups and no accidents. Thank goodness, cause the whole potty training thing is really starting to get on my nerves.

YEAH Holland! You go girl! (or don't).

I can't wait until our turn comes, I am sure it is a long time coming though. However, time seems to be flying by these days.

Congrats! My twin boys have been potty trained for a while, but only during the day. Nightime is altogether another issue!

Mommy said...

Hi Billie,
Your girls are so beautiful I have read your blog over and over getting answers to so many questions. My husband and I have a preemie (8 months tuesday, 5 months corrected 3 of aug.)he is our miracle, his brother passed away 6 hours after being born in my arms, I had p.r.o.m at 23 weeks and delivered at 25 and 3. Jonathan has been diagniosed with auditory neauropothy(sp?) and we are getting a second opinion at U of M next wednesday, but if he does require a cochlear implant I would really appreciate some advise, I live in the south lyon area and you can reach me at vollbach@yahoo.com. Thanks so much for your blog it is really an inspiration watching your girls grow into beautiful people!

Hi! Yay! Congrats to both Holland and Eden for their recent accomplishments!

Came across your blog through 5 Minutes for Special Needs. My daughters Faith and Emma were born at 27 weeks weighing 1lb 11oz in Sept of 2006. Unbelievably, we have not had an major developmental problems. Emma has had to go through physical therapy to help her with crawling, walking, etc. So I can't even begin to imagine what you guys have gone through, but can somewhat relate.

Just wanted to say "Hi" and can't wait to read more!

Jacqui said...

I am really jealous. I would love to ditch the nappies forever.

Thanks for your comment over at the blog. Hope you are going well and your feet haven't been run over nearly as much as mine ;-)

Jacolyn said...

Yeah Holland!!! I am so looking forward to the day I no longer have to buy diapers.

Hi guys. You don't know me (triplet mom g/g/b - 26 weekers) but I've linked up to your blog thru a couple of others and first, I'd like to say that your girls are beautiful and I'm so happy to hear of their great accomplishments! Second, I am back to work part-time with GM and thru the People With Disabilities Affinity group I belong to, we have some tickets available for an upcoming Tigers game. So, I'd like to know if you're interested in attending, if so, please contact me.

I love reading your blog. It really is an inspiration to us. Way to go holland and eden! We have twins born at 26w on christmas this past year. Our son marc had a hige grade 4 beain hemmorage at 3 days. I was wondering what things you did with your twins when they were 4m adjusted so I can get the ball rolling now. Were there any symptoms early on that I can be on the look out for?

OK so I have been following your site now for a few months now, I think since last September. I have micro-preemie twin girls also, born two days apart at 23 weeks. I absolutely love your ability to share with the world, your deepest feelings and excitement for life with your girls.
I however am not quite ready to go "live" yet. Would you mind sending me your email address so I can ask a few questions. We recently found out one of our daughters has profound hearing loss and needs to get cochlear implants. I could really use your insight.
