Big Girl

August 9 - This is what Eden wanted to do ALL day. She was miserable and we never did figure out why. She was over it the next day.

August 10 - This is one of Eden's favorite songs right now. She also loves "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "ABCs,""Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes," and "Baa Baa Black Sheep" to name a few. Singing is one of her new favorite past times.

August 11 - She loves sitting at the table with us.

August 12 - Eden was walking around with a crayon and when she came back around she had a green mouth. So much for when she used to tell us "no, no, no" about eating the crayons!
On to the real good stuff! Eden has been telling us "poop" a lot recently. Ever since the bathtub incident I've  been taking her comments a little more seriously. I've been asking her each time she tells us, if she wants to sit on the potty. Recently her comments have transitioned from "poop" to "pobby" {or potty} so we've done a lot of sitting on the potty without much success.

The other day she cried when I put her on the potty, so I knew I had to figure something out, and quick, before her willingness to try fizzled and gave way to fear of the big potty. Today Lane and I gave in, we got her her very own potty! We put it in the downstairs bathroom because it is the easiest bathroom for her to access - right off the living room where most of our day at home is spent. Since installing the new potty, Eden has sat on it at least 3 times without pants and a diaper on, and many many more times with her clothes on. She's very excited about the potty, now we just have to get her to use it!

Please note: I still think she's too young to be potty trained, but she's showing signs of being ready, so I'm starting, but not pushing the issue. We will probably sit on the potty once or twice a day at my request, but stick to sitting on the potty mainly when Eden requests to go "pobby."
