14 hours of dry

So last night, Ava went on her potty one more time, and then ran into the bathroom and jumped onto the big toilet. She has been TERRIFIED of the big toilet for like a year...so that really surprised me. I put the soft little toilet seat on under her, and told her it would make sure she doesn't fall in. She liked that! She sat there for like 20 minutes trying to go again. I finally talked her down so she could go to the store with me to get more potty treats--colored goldfish. Last night, after she fell asleep, I slipped a pull up on her just in case. However, this morning, she woke up DRY! I spent like 20 minutes trying to get her to sit on her potty, but she was resisting. So I put on the potty songs and about the 2nd time through she ran into the bathroom, put her doll on the "happy potty" and put her little soft seat on the toilet, climbed up and went all by herself! I was so proud! 20 minutes later she came down, and put her Ariel undies back on. I'm a little concerned about bowel movement time. It's usually in the mornings--so I'm hoping she gets up to go, instead of going in the undies, because ...ewwwwwwwww that would be messy. I'm so proud of her for staying dry so long and keeping up with it!

Way too go Ava! You'll have to give me pointers on how it all goes. We'll soon be embarking down that same path!
