Potty Like a Rockstar

While we haven't really begun to potty train yet, Emily began showing interest in the potty. I'm thinking it's because her best friend at daycare is potty training, and she wants to be like her. So, since we didn't want to discourage her new interest, we headed to Babies R Us to check out the potty training equipment. For downstairs, she has a little Elmo seat that fits on a regular toilet. Here she is...trying not to fall in.

For upstairs, we got her a froggy potty of her very own. Looks like Daddy gave her some reading material.

So far, she only pees in the potty, and she doesn't even do this all the time. We figure it's pointless to potty train before the baby gets here anyway, since a big change can sometimes cause kids to regress. But, she does love to sit (sometimes for what seems like forever) on the potty. So, we sit there, and when she does go, she gets a celebration! I'm hoping this summer perhaps I can work with her more on this.

LOL at the title.

I was hoping someone would!

I'm wondering if Emily - as she grows older and starts realizing the wonders of the Internets - will appreciate her mom posting pictures of her on the pot as a toddler.

They are tastefully done!
