Natali is pretty easy. I've been around a few kids. I know we have it easy.
She loves Elmo...currently....I might hip her to something different soon.
On her Ipad (yeah our 21 month old has an Ipad....remember we are raising a geek!) she has several Elmo videos along with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse videos.
One of her favorite videos is Elmo's Potty Time.
Kelli has more experience with potty training Natali than me...it just happened that way.
Over the last week Natali has watched that Elmo's Potty Time at least 4 times. She knows "Pee Pee and Poo Poo". She even knows what the words mean.
This week is Father and Daughter week as I have the whole week off. It's the Daddy and Daughter game everyday...no daycare this week!
Several times a day while home she has said "Pee Pee, Poo Poo , Potty" and pointed toward the restroom. Off we go, I plop her down on the her potty and she then says , "Daddy Pee Pee!" and points to the toilet. Fine...down I sit.
Up until tonight we both just sit there. Tonight AFTER her bath I was drying her off when she pointed to her potty and again said, "Daddy Pee Pee Potty". Ok I put her down...she directed me to go as well.
Natali sat there for a moment and I could tell she was trying to go. She squirmed a bit. Sure enough out came the pee. She waited a few more moments and waved her hands "all done." Nice.
So far we've only had #1's no #2s. Not bad for a a kid basically training herself through Elmo videos. I am somewhat confident she will be trained by age 2. Small baby steps.
Also of note today...no nap. They are slowly going away. I'm going to miss them.
