Bye Bye Diapers...

Dear Pampers,

Thank you for being so good to me and my Big Girl for almost 2 years. However, today I am writing to you tell you we won't be needing your service anymore. I am proud to say my 23 month old is potty training and succeeding very well. I am so PROUD of her!! Don't worry you'll be getting our money soon enough when our 2nd baby comes in November. Until then we are truly enjoying diaper free days!

Breaking free,
Ben, Morgan and Emma

As you you can tell we are happy to say that Emma is in the middle of potty training and doing very well. I've talked to some of you throughout the weekend and you know there were days I was ready to throw in the towel, heck I think it changed every 5 minutes. But Sunday afternoon/night she went potty twice. I was hoping that it would click with her yesterday morning (I decided Sunday to take Monday off) but she was still a little hesitant to sit on her potty. However she ended up doing it and has been teeteeing in the potty ever since. We are so PROUD of her! That's really an understatement. I wish she knew how proud we really were. I knew she'd get it, she's very smart but like I said there were moments I thought she might not but sure enough with patience and consistency she got it! I know we'll probably have an accident here or there but we are done with diapers. She has been in big girl panties since Friday! I have to say she's absolutely adorable in them and even looks more like a BIG GIRL! So thank you everyone who listened, or offered advice whether I took it or not. I really do appreciate it! Hope you are all having a great week and had a great Mother's Day!

Here is a picture taken last week of our BIG GIRL! She's so cute!! The purse is as big as her but she totes it everywhere!! A little diva already!!

CONGRATS EMMA!!! That is so exciting...I remember when Drew was first potty trained, it's amazing the things that our children do that make us so happy. Who would have guessed using a potty would be this exciting for mother and child!!! :)
