Potty Training Update

We started potty training last Monday.  As of Thursday night Ellington had successfully used the potty one time.  I was convinced she wasn't ready.  I had purposely waited longer than most to potty train so that she would be ready. She obviously wasn't ready.  I was going to give it a few more days and go back to diapers.  I didn't really see it as failing, I just wanted to do it when it was right for Ellington.  I didn't want to push her.

As of Friday she was basically potty trained.  Just.like.that.  People said it was true.  People said it would happen.  But ya'll, I honestly didn't think she was ready.  But she was.  

Even at the fair cabin she did AWESOME.  She obviously still sleeps in diapers and she isn't 100% accident free (although most days she is).  I honestly can't believe how she went from NOT AT ALL to almost completely potty trained.  She was ready.  Maybe I wasn't.  

I am so proud of her.  She is so proud of herself.  The process was harder and easier than I expected.
