Well, two weeks ago, totally on a fluke (I think), she said "potty?" and I asked "Do you have to go potty?" She said, "yeah" so we went to the bathroom. She pulled down her pants and I took off her diaper and she sat on her little chair. And went. Woohoo Morgan. I think I freaked her out when I was yelling to Mark in the kitchen, "She went, she went!" I clapped and smiled and told her what a big girl she is.

Adventures in Potty Training
I was going to wait to post about this in Morgan's 20 month update, but it's become a post all it's own. Just before Christmas I bought Morgan a little potty chair to get acquainted with. Over the following weeks we talked about what the chair was for and she almost always accompanied me to the bathroom for a pretend potty break.
Last Monday she used the potty for the first time at school. And she's gone at least once a day ever since.So, frequent potty breaks are becoming a part of her routine. We're not going to push her to go. And I know it's quite a process. And I didn't think it would happen so soon. Feel free to share any cute reward systems you know of. My original plan was to make her this crown but I don't think she would see the value in that yet. Ideas?
