I think it suddenly struck her that the reason she was so annoyed was that she had to pee so badly! Can't toilet train before 2? Don't tell Ivy that!
    Sarah, that is too cute! At the beginning, Evie used to go into a huge panic and run around the room saying "pee! pee!" (or poo! poo!, depending on what it was). Evie is finally doing everything potty-related by herself.

    Mara, Evie totally took a long time to be aware of her pees, and took even longer to get to a stage where she would actually tell me. And she started at 6 mths. There will be good days and bad days, but never give up, just take it easy when it's not working out that day. Jade might be reliable on her pees soon, or may take a little longer, but once it happens, it will happen fast!

    yay i can't wait for her to be more independent on the potty front! although at the same time i can!

    doing okay the last couple days, teething is starting again so been a little lax on catching the pees, and this morning *i'm so proud of her* she only let out half a poop while trying to get my attention before we both got up, then let the rest out the second her butt touched potty!! it's been over a week and it's the first poop to touch diaper since! thinking the next couple days may be rough as we are going some outings in the moby and i'm not quite ready to ec in public with her, it's still an *us* thing. plus she prefers booby to poop so i let her have that comfort for now, will transition to a sippy at a later date.
    lol as i was typing this she came up to me for a potty!! just when you think you have things figured out they go and surprise you!

    breakthrough this morning!! took off her wet diaper and made a lot of icky noises and the pee cue and then put it on top off the toilet (beside her potty) and then when she got mad about having to put a new diaper on i told her that she had to keep wearing them until all the pee went into the potty and pointed to the wet diaper. i totally don't know if she understood any of it but the very next pee she signalled, held it, grabbed my hands and ran to pee in the potty!! it's been a while since she's done that with pee so i'm hoping that the teething pause is off again and she can get some more practice! poo's are still a potty only deal now! think i need to bring a bucket for on the road poops as she held it on sat (we had a diaper day due to an outing) and wouldn't let go till sunday morning even though she really needed too. live and learn momma!

    arg, i hate how development stuff and environmental stuff can set things back. jade was doing really well, we had a couple days of only 2 wet diapers all day, then back to poop only, then yest missed two of her three poops poor little thing has too many things going on and yet she is still trying, she signals and we run and she sits and sits and sits and then gets frustrated so i take her off and we 'take a break, we'll try again later hunny'. right now she is teething (still, why must they take so long to come out) and learning a new trick (she took three independent steps the other day!) and since the weather change seems a little constipated, i need to get her drinking more water (right now she will only drink about 1/2 cup and lots of little booby snacks, trying to wean off the snacks so that she gets more water and less 'food' when all she needs is a drink) she's waking in the night again two or three times a night and half the time she fusses about her diaper and within minutes it's wet or dirty so i've been trying to get her on the potty in time, unfortunately mommy is getting woken up every 1 1/2 hours or so and it makes it hard to get up fast!
    sa for little trainers (for when she gets back on track) i have a friend through my momstown group local that sells cloth online and she has agreed to look into the smaller sized trainers since she doesn't yet carry any of them!! woohoo, bugs EC might be able to help out a local mom that's starting her business, i love it when that happens! well that's about it for now. cheers to more water for both of us and many more successes!

    I'm impressed! 3 independent steps and she's not 8 months old yet? WOAH!

    As for the mistakes and lack of sleep... Oy, back to 1.5 hours at a time. I truly feel for you. I've decided that my sleep is more important these days.

    so it's been a bit but i thought i would share what's been going on. potty pause is what's been up! lol! two new teeth, a bunch of new sounds, and today, walking independently (no couch or anything!) added to all the hubbub of the holidays and i am really hoping that she gets back on track soon. there have been a few times that she has signalled and i got the dirtiest looks when i changed her in the living room at my dad's (we switched diaper station to the bathroom for the association)! she is starting to really get the hang of things though as she will go to the bathroom and goes straight for the big potty saying 'pah-pah' but she just won't go on it, so we follow her lead and wait! hope everyone had a great and successful holidays!

    okay that was a longer pause than i anticipated but it seems like it's normal (thank you to all the wonderful ladies who post here!!) today she told me potty and pooped in the potty! that's one today, crossing fingers for more, she runs and is starting to talk more and getting better at feeding herself (learning the fork) so hopefully enough things have progressed to work on this some more! YAY!!

    woohoo! we had a pee in the potty!! this has been the big 'lesson' for her with ec, poop's are pretty easy, pee's take a little more attention to catch and teach. she is walking now and has started going to the bathroom and banging on the toilet and potty and then uses the potty! so proud of her that it's starting back up again! i have the pink pull up s and keep telling her that she can have them (she's fascinated with them!) when she uses the potty more, she looks at me like 'aw mom, fine' sulking! now to get her to stop looking at me with panic on her face and signal me earlier! she's having to go faster than she is aware and she gets mad! lol, i love it, progress!
