Week 1 (April 4-10)
Got in the habit of sitting on the potty regularly. Abbie started out very grumpy about potty training, "Don't make me do this!" Stickers unsuccessfully used as motivation.
First potty success on April 11 - hooray! - after starting to use lollipops as motivation. Around 10 potty successes this week! We had lots of cheering and clapping sessions! :)
Initiated sitting on the potty several times! On average 2-3 potty successes each day this week! Had a set back on Wednesday, April 20 as she got diarrhea (after getting 5 lollipops in the morning for successes). Realized lollipop motivation had to go (too much sugar!) and started using M&Ms as motivation (much less daily sugar intake). After a couple days she got back in her potty routine again.
Week 4 (April 25-May 1)
First potty success in a public restroom on April 28 (twice in one morning) - woohoo! - after finally remembering to bring the M&Ms with us as motivation. On average 4-5 potty successes each day this week!
Week 5-6 (May 2-15)
Began initiating sitting on the potty several times each day! Completely comfortable going on any potty. On average 6-7 potty successes each day and only 2-3 accidents per day!
Week 7 (May 16-22)
First poo-poo potty success on Monday, May 16 - hooray! Initiates going to the potty consistently! On average 6-7 potty successes each day and only 1-2 accidents per day!
Week 8 (May 23-29)
Initiates consistently and accidents only occasionally! Hooray for the potty trained princess! :)
Abbie loves to hang on the bathroom sink!
Someday very soon my little gymnast will be too tall to do this!
While talking about things that happen in the bathroom, today Abbie decided to help mommy clean the toilet..ugh! Abbie came sheepishly toddling over to me covered in blue soap this afternoon! I followed the blue soapy footprints to Christian's bathroom where I discovered the toilet filled with toilet bowl scrubbies and blue toilet water all over the floor - gross!
"Look at my blue hands Mommy!"
Oh my funny little smurfette! :)
