Lack Luster for Everything...Must Be Potty Training!!

It has been a long couple weeks with the first one almost a complete nightmare. With hardly leaving the house and when we did we would have an accident it was hard to get the motivation to do anything, including blogging. So here are just a few pictures I took during the process.
Tried to fit her dolly in there too but finally convinced her to just pose with her next to her stroller filled with "so many friends."
One day we made a tent under the kitchen table. (I am telling after a few days of being couped up, you'll try anything. Well she loved it so much she wanted to sleep there. I think she lasted as long as 20 min-but at least I got a picture.
Her new "smile for the camera" cheesey face. Notice the towel, I wasn't into getting pee all over the carpet.
I tried to capture this moment, but it is not as good as it was the first time. We have a mirror in front of our room and she was trying to turn around so she could she her bum with her cute new underpants on. She loves them so much and loves to see them while dancing on my bed with a ring pop from going #2 on the potty. Still a hard thing for her to accomplish.
This was the following week. I needed to get out and the weather was so nice. I put on a pull up and headed to the beach. I think we both needed it. And sure enough she stayed dry and wanted to use the port-a potty! After a good week she has finally figured it out. And then Ryan's mom took her for a couple days and then she had it dialed! I think we had both had enough of each other and Grandma's just have a way with their grandkids. And even today she went in all on her own pulled her pants down and went! So glad this part of parenting is over...especially with her stubborn personality!

potty training my first child may very well be my proudest moment... ever. :) just kidding, but it's such a great feeling to know that you taught your kid how to actually do something. way to go!!

I had a wonderful weekend when I finally figured out that Camryn's "potty style" was get-out-of-my-face. When I told her that her potty was in the bathroom and she could go when she wanted, Presto... she got what she wanted: power and control. We then became best friends.

Yay Camryn! My she is looking so grown up isn't she? She is such a doll! I need to get on the ball around here! I'm proud of you! Jealous of you that you are done! Potty training is no fun for me! I have issues with packing for trips and potty training...I procrastinate both because they take a while and seem rather daunting. Go camryn! So awesome!!!

Good for you and Camryn. I am super lazy with potty training, Kate will probably be four before we go for it..just kidding! ( I hope)

Ughhh I dreaded this before I even had kids. What "method" did you use? Olivia is a total drama mama so I'm not sure I can take it!

Good job, Camryn and even better, mom! You did a great job keeping your cool while little missy figured things out. I love the pictures you got to document the whole thing. Oh, wait-you forgot to get a picture of getting the poo out of the undies! Worse job, yet!
