Potty in the Potty

This very evening, not a few hours ago, Ella did her first potty in the potty. We "unofficially" started potty training last week. While I was sick and Daddy was in charge, he asked Ella to tell him when she needed to go. She started telling him, but usually as she was going.

This evening as she was obviously going in her diaper I asked if she wanted to go to the potty and she ran in there. She sat down on her potty, but from the diaper I thought we had missed it. A few minutes later she jumped up and said "bye bye" as she ran from the bathroom... and lo and behold had left a little something in the potty! Aunt Michelle and I whooped and hollered and we called Daddy to let him know. Ella was very confused as to what the big deal was all about.

I'm sure it's a fluke, but I'll take it! I'm counting on Aunt Karin to get her all trained next week when she's here...!

3 Thoughts From Others:

What, no picture?

Yea! I think that's a great idea to get someone else to finish the training!

See Karin? You're on deck!

Don't think I didn't think about it. But after seeing "Jon and Kate Plus 8" where Kate took pictures of them with their potty...I decided to spare Ella that embarrassment.
