BIG girl potty

Apparently this is just another seat in the house
Don't ya love this! And can't sit without wearing Mom's shoes
YEAH!!!!! First pee-pee on the big girl potty!
We recently got a "big girl potty" for Elliette, hoping that by chance we may get her potty trained before the new baby comes. I think she thinks it is another chair to sit on, but tonight when I sat her on it she actually went pee! I know the joys of hearing about this, but I was jumping for joy! Not sure she really gets it, it was probably a fluke, but still she did it! Krista had read that 22 months is the "magic" age to start potty training, that after that they get comfortable in diapers and don't care. Ellie turned 22 months on the 7th so cross your fingers that the theory is right. Also any suggestions would be awesome, like I said I am not sure she even gets it yet so any tricks that have worked would be good to hear!

Playing on the rope bridge
Zonked out! We just had the most fun little get a way down in St. George. It was sunny and 85 degrees, absolutely beautiful! We got to see our friends the Garricks and finally see their stinkin cute house. We enjoyed shopping, eating, hiking and swimming. It felt so nice to sit by the pool. And yes there is an obvious lack of pictures of me, being 8+ months preggers! We celebrated Mother's Day and my Bday. I love it down there, Jeremy doesn't see the big draw, maybe it's a Utah thing I don't know. We stayed at the Wingate by Wyndham and it was brand new and modern, so nice! I love quick trips like this to make you feel like you got a way, even if you only traveled 3 hours. Traci I hope we can come down soon!
