Last night Delly said she wanted to start using the potty like a big girl. We've been talking about it with her a lot, trying to talk it up and make her interested, and it finally started to work. So we talked about her telling her teachers herself in the morning that she wanted to use the potty, to make sure that she was thinking about it and that this was her decision (sort of).

So they officially started today, parking her butt on the potty every half-hour, and she peed once! She was so excited and proud of herself. So now we're on board at home too, and though she does NOT like being taken away from playing or watching Dora to go sit on the potty, once she's there she's fine.

I think she finally gets it, and is ready. FINALLY. Having two kids in diapers really blows, and despite all the hassle and mess of potty training, we're thrilled. Now I'm just hoping Mimi will be one of those crazy kids that potty trains by 18 months. That would rock.

But first things first. This girl is getting bigger and bigger, right in front of our eyes. Wow.
