{potty training and such}

I think I can officially say that Kaydence is potty trained! Woohoo! Sure, she has her occasional accidents here and there, but she has even stayed dry for the last couple nights, including nap times.

The week after we came back from Cabo, I was determined to try the 3-day Potty Training method. I looked at the weather that week and it said rain all.week.long, so I figured there was no better time to try it since we would be stuck indoors anyway.

I have to admit, it was pretty intense and you really need to be committed to it if you try this method, BUT, it totally worked. I will say though that it takes a special child to be *completely* potty trained in 3 days. So if you decide to try this method, don't be discouraged if you're child is not completely trained in 3 days. I didn't leave the house for 5 days (I thought I was going to go insane -- lol), but at that point I did feel pretty confident that she would tell me when she needed to go. Our first outing was to Stonefire Pizza and it all went well. Then later that weekend we went to Strawberry Fest and she even told me when she had to go there, which I wasn't sure would happen.

The saddest part though was that she was *dying* to go outside, which I wouldn't have had a problem with after the 3 days, but it was so yucky and raining out yet that we really couldn't. Poor baby probably felt like a prisoner in her own home. I got a lot of photos to commemorate this huge mile stone, but I will only share a couple since the others wouldn't be appropriate for the internet (bare bottom and all). ;-)

I'm so proud of her...and she feels like such a big girl. Where has my baby gone???

thank you, klo! ;-)

yes, she is! well, she does have a couple accidents once in awhile, but for the most part she is. i haven't put a diaper on her since we started (other than swim diapers), so she is doing really great. she has even woken up in the middle of the night a couple times to go potty, which shocked me, so i was pretty proud of her for that. pooing on the potty was a struggle at first, but i think we finally have that down now.

Congrats on conquering the potty training! That's definitely a big milestone for baby and mama!
