I'm a big girl now!

I am so so so proud of our Gwenny! She has been potty training forever, but recently we've had her in panties all day, everday. And she's done very well with minimal accidents. She loves wearing panties. Especially her Princess Aurora ones. Well last night I was putting her to bed, which is at times challenging. So we had read her book and said prayers, and she was tucked in-happily! So when I realized I had not yet taken her out of her panties and put her in a pull up I was scared. Either put her in her pull up, upset her, and try to get her back into bed, or just clean up her sheets in the morning. Well I was tired and wanted to go to bed so I decided to do the latter.
So when I heard her knocking on her door at 2:45 in the morning, I knew she had peed and was wanting to get out of wet jammies. But when I went to get her, she just said "mommy I have to pee!" So I hurried her to the bathroom where she went and then went back to bed!!!! So it's official! She's potty trained! Even though sometimes it is easier to have her just pee in a pull up rather than go running thru the mall to find a toilet and frantically get a liner on the toilet before she pees her pants, I am so excited to not be spending $40/month on pull ups anymore! Good job Gwenny, we love you so much!!!

Yaaaaaaaay Gwen! I am so jealous. I haven't even started trying with Gordon yet... I am expecting the worst. Maybe you can help him out. Can I send him to your house for a month?

Yeah Gwenny!!! Yeah Kristin!!! Rachel just decided to get serious this last week (mostly due to her new Dora panties). She is doing great! I am not sure how the night time thing will go. I am too scared to venture there yet.

I love Gwennies face in the family pic - she has such attitude and it is adorable!

We love you guys!!! :-)
