Hanging out in the backyard 9/28/10

Ellie has been running around the house in the mornings and afternoons with her bottom free to the breeze.  She makes it to the potty almost every time.  It’s funny to see how her mind works.  She’ll just be in the middle of a conversation with us about cooking or Mr Potatohead and then says, “pottie” and runs to the bathroom.  Amazing!  So today’s experiment is putting some pants on, but no diaper.  I’ll update as the news comes in…

So, as I suspected she’d do, she came to me a half an hour later saying pottie and looking down at her wet pants.  No big deal, we’ll try again another day.  We’ve been too busy the past few days fighting her raging fever to think about where she’s peeing.
