I've been all smiles this morning b/c our little one woke up for the day and- once again- let us know she needed to potty. So, off we ran to the bathroom and we got a double win (as the EC-ers call it): a full pee and poo!
I can't tell you how happy I am to get those pees and poos in the potty. She's not fully potty trained of course because she naps throughout the day and I'm not going to wake her up to go to the potty and she's not going to wake up for that either. And I know I won't catch every one b/c sometimes we're playing and her letting me know "I gotta go, momma" to me is just a playful and cute funny face or sound at that moment so I'll miss it. But she's as potty trained as a 6 month old could be. Woohoo!
And it just kinda happened one day...
My husband had started taking her to the potty from the time she was a month old. He'd hear some rumblies or take whatever cue he could get and put her little wrinkly tushie to hover over the potty and voila! We knew it would take some time. And then suddenly, we realized she had been cueing us for a while and since the day we got it, it's been a constant communication. It's so great. I think it's funny people are SO AMAZED by this. I mean, If you can train a puppy to pee and poo outside, how could you NOT train a little human being to?
They're not learning disabled like so many people think they are, they're just small and new.
