We're DONE...she is potty trained!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yippee! I feel like I can actually now say that Addison is completely potty trained! She started peeing on the potty around 2 years old, and then regressed towards the end of my pregnancy with Quenton. Then, she picked back up with the peeing, but was absolutely frantic when it came time to do the other...and I mean FRANTIC. She would wear big girl panties all day, and then when it came time for number 2...she would come running to me and say "mommy..I need a diaper!!!!!!" Then she would run around like a crazy girl, freaking out about going poopy! It was really odd, and Jae and I weren't sure what to do, but the doctor said just give her her space during that time...and she would come around. Sure enough, she did. Now we are completely potty-trained, wearing big girl panties ALL day long, even at school! She does still wear a night-time pull-up...but we are SOOO proud of her!





P.S. It doesn't hurt to do a little bribing! Daddy told Addison he would get her a GIANT CAKE if she went poo-poo on the potty...and it worked!!!

We are going through the same thing! Micah was trained in 3 days with the exception of pooping! I just don't get it, but we're experiencing the SAME thing. I'm sure he'll come around in his own time, I just hope it's sooner than later!! We've bribed with Chuck E Cheese (he Loves that place!)
