Ch, Ch, Changes...

The last couple of days have brought a wind of change through our house. As I mentioned over the weekend, we were planning on getting back into the potty training and Ava and I have worked on it over the last couple of days. When I came home today, I found Ava and Nana celebrating Ava's first pee-pee in the potty! Yay! What a celebration! I was definitely more excited than Ava was.

We have also been taking Ava off the pacifier and today was the 3rd day solid that she had been withour her "Sassy." I wanted to wean her off of it by her 2nd birthday so on Sunday when she had thrown it out of her crib I just put it away before she saw it and we went from there. She has only asked for it once and I just ignored her and distracted her elsewhere. Feeling good about this. Knock on wood, so far, so good.

Today also marked the first time that Ava climbed down the stairs by herself. I was right beside her, but she walked down on her own and was pretty steady doing it. Don't get me wrong, I am not letting her loose on the stairs, but I am more confident in her abilities if she were to sneak on her own.

So, it has been a huge day for us. I am the proud mom calling people to let them know my child made pee-pee in the potty. Thanks Nana for your help and I hope that as days go by we have more potty successes!

The pics I am posting are of Ava after her potty (yes, I must commemorate the moment), a couple of Ava's eye boo-boo where she fell on the coffee table, and a couple of Ava's new monkey trick. She is constantly climbing now and when she gets caught doing something like this, she smiles and says, "I see you." Your heart just melts, but she gets a pop anyway! Hope everyone is doing well, I would love to hear from any of ya'll that are reading this! Have a great week!

    Holding Mommy's lotion on the potty is too cute - but of course, using the potty, is even better. Best of luck on the potty training with your beautiful little girl!
