i'm potty-training *finally*...

so i am not going to post pictures of me actually ON the potty, but i can promise you, i am making progress. a couple of weeks ago we tried the "panties-only" approach & it just upset me to have wet pants. i was always surprised when the wetness came. yesterday, we tried this method again & it began to click! yesterday afternoon, i realized i had to pee & i ran across the kitchen and sat on the potty with my pants still on! but at least i DID get some pee in the potty. i really liked my first set of panties though... they had love-bug cars on them. unfortunately, we only had one set like that & i was really sad about it. so mommy drew cars on my other panties so that i could always wear a car. this made me really want to wear the panties & not wear diapers.

on saturday, i only had 2 accidents & i peed in the potty about 8 times!! i am still a bit skittish of the potty -- i usually just ask mommy to put a diaper on me. but then she would say to me, "no, we aren't wearing diapers today. you need to sit on the potty." and so i would sit on the potty & wait for the pee to come out. the first time i saw pee coming out of me, i squealed with JoY!! my reward is that i get to play with mommy's phone for 15 minutes after i get pee in the potty.

"it's a better plow, john deere..."

you've probably known for a while that i love "the fields" -- which means anything to do with a farm. sometime ago, grammy got a john deere tractor video for me. i LOVE this video & can recite many parts of it. grammy & pappy also got this john deere t-shirt for me one day when we visited the john deere store. so when mommy found this *girly* john deere tractor fabric, she knew that i needed some pants to match the shirt. as soon as i saw the fabric, i was so excited & could not stop saying, "it's a john deere fabric!"

finally an update...

sorry i have been away from the blog for a while. mommy is still trying to learn the laptop computer (the new camera is not easily compatible with our desktop computer.) so we took these couple of quick-pics today so you could all see my pretty dress. mommy has been wanting to try this on me for a while now, but we just haven't had the right combination of opportunity & weather. today was perfect. i like the dress because it has so many squares on it. mommy likes the dress because she got it at a consignment sale for $8! in the first picture, i am being silly about the camera going "click." when daddy takes my picture, he says "1,2,3, click!" and i think this is so funny. so mommy tried it today too, and we got some pretty good smiles!
