The Potty Princess
One of my summer goals has been to get Shelby comfortable sitting on the potty. We help her pull her pants and diaper down, and then lift her on to the potty. She has gone from screaming every time we put her on it, to sitting on it and singing and bouncing, to accidentally peeing on the potty, to telling us when she needs to sit on it, to going on it about 50% of the time (both #1 and #2). She has certainly exceeded my expectations for her in the bathroom this summer and I am very proud of her. I am still hesitant to get her out of diapers though...I don't want to push too much or put any kind of pressure on her when it comes to the potty. She gets more than enough pushing from us in other areas of her development. For now, we are going to continue doing what we're doing and see what happens.
