Poooootty training

In February we started introducing potty (Madisyn likes to drag out the "o")training. We let her run around without any pants on with a portable training potty close by. She did remarkably well, but of course, she couldn't run around everywhere without pants on (especially in public) :) So as long as she was bare bottom, she would go... but once she had a diaper on, she'd forget about the potty.

We became more lackadaisical after Landon was born, but she has continued to make progress. A couple of weeks ago we hit another milestone; she asked to go potty while we were shopping... and actually held it until we found a restroom. Daycare also told us that we could send her in real underwear, since she usually makes it all day (although we haven't yet since we're hesitant to try it at home).

I think we're on the home stretch! Every week we're buying fewer diapers (yeah!). The last big hurtle... getting her to go #2 in the potty more. We're open to suggestions! You'd think that would be the easiest, after all, why would anyone want to sit in that??? (I thought I'd spare you a picture of her on the pot)

I am so impressed! We are no where near starting potty training. I'm readind "Potty Training for Dummies" right now and trying to get hyped up :)

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
