potty training

there is so much to write of late. but the thing i'm most excited about is the potty training we are doing. this might be the only place i can really write down how excited i am about maya's progress. =)

one day around her 13th month we decided to start putting her on the toilet when we thought she was going potty (#2). so far maya seems to be taking well to the idea. she is almost always happy to be on her little potty seat on the big toilet. we always give her high fives when she does potty and sing her favorite songs when we are waiting. i started incorperating the sign, potty into her routine. shortly after that i noticed she started waving her little fist in the air when we asked her if she had to go. yay maya!

the most amazing thing is that around her 15 month we noticed that she started to sign potty even when having to go #1. how cool is that!

i'm convinced that by the time she is walking she will be totally potty trained. of course maya is not as enthusiastic about standing and cruising as potty training. but for now, i don't mind carrying her into the bathroom when she signs potty, even if it is a false alarm.

impressive. we tried when E neared age two but didn't have much success. she was time trained by three, and finally totally accident free by December of this year. Good luck making the goal even sooner than this, I know it's one we all struggle with.

Go Maya!!!
