Potty Time

When I am putting the girls to bed, they have a routine in the bathroom that they follow. They both brush their teeth, I help Emily of course, and then they use the bathroom. Chloe uses the big potty, and Emily would pretend to use the little potty that I put in there (She would sit on it for a few seconds with her pj's still on, then get up and say "okay"). It's been up there for a while just so she can see it and become familiar with it, but I never intended to do the whole potty training thing until a lot later since I have my hands full with Little Man. But tonight, everyone was in the bathroom (Zachary was getting a bath, and Mike was helping the girls with their routine) and Mike decided to let Emily sit on the potty without her diaper or pj's on. Well, she did it! She peed on the potty! We clapped, sang, and even did a little dance for her. She was so excited about the whole thing, I hope she understood what it was for! I'm thinking about bringing the potty downstairs (where I am most of the time) and getting some pull ups for her so she can take her pants off by herself. Maybe she will start to potty train herself, will it really be that easy?! Ha!

By the way, I just noticed that I could change the font of my blog (I know, I know, I'm not very observant!) So I've decided to change it, I like this one much better....
