And Done

Leah is officially on the potty train. CHOO CHOO!I'm proud to report that Leah has officially caught on. It's been a long road to get her here, but as soon as we really buckled down it was only a matter of days before the whole concept really clicked with her. The accidents have been minimal and she is so proud of herself. You can just tell that she's so happy to be a little more independent. I really feel that it's given her confidence a boost.

Sticker charts and toy bribery seemed to be just the thing for her. After she earned 10 stickers (1 for #1 and 2 for #2) she would get a small toy or something like it. We did this 6 times, it only took about 1 1/2 weeks for her to get through 60 stickers, and she had it down.

My girl's a CHAMP!

Congrats Leah! That's a great idea Melanie, we'll have to give it a shot. Peyton has am idea but is still a little young to totally understand.

Soooo jealous right now. We're still chasing after the train. Now that I'm back and "available", I'm determined to get Fisher on the train, or half on the train, or something...by this time next week?! I think I can, I think I can...
