Big news!

Just when I thought nothing new was going to happen, Rebecca surprised us all.
For a month or so Rebecca has been telling us when she has to poop - she taps her tummy with both hands. We've set her on the potty but she never does anything. Then as soon as I put her diaper back on she will go. But late night she told us she had to go, she started pushing (her face turns all red - it's so cute!), so I rushed her over to the potty and she went! I sat with her for about 10 minutes and even read a few books. It was so exciting! I know she is not going to be potty trained over night, but at least she understands a little better now what it means to "poop in the potty" and she seems to enjoy it all.
Rebecca is just shy of 18 months so I really think she could be potty trained by 2 years.


  1. I know she is just a baby but by the look on her face she seems to know that pictures of someone on the potty is not cool;)


  2. i would have to agree with jon. especially when she is pooping! the poor girl! she'll be scarred for life.

  3. ha, this is one of those photos that she'll never forgive you for! :o) (very cute though.)

  4. Nice work.
    Many she is one smart girl.
    Takes a great mom to get them started at that age:)
    Kudos to you!
