Knock on wood...

So we have been secretly potty training Evelyn for the past few weeks. It started around bath - when Gavin always goes on the potty before getting into the tub - and Evie always peed on the floor or in the tub when she got in. So I started putting her on the potty too. She wants to do everything he does anyway... It's been almost 2 weeks and she has gone every night before bath. We make a big deal and she gets so excited because brother cheers her on and says how proud he is of her. I also started doing it during the day - and she has successfully gone a few times. Some times she just sits and nothing happens so she tries to hop down - other times she pees and then gets off.

But tonight, Daddy was playing downstairs with Gavin so it was just the girls upstairs. We walked in the bathroom and she went right to the toilet. I stripped her down and she sat up there and peed - but didn't try to get off. When I thought she was done I started to take her off but she started fussing - so I put her back on. And then she went poop. ON THE POTTY! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!??!?!? I was so excited and almost regret that I am writing it (for fear it will not happen again for a long time). I know girls are supposed to be easier/faster - but come on! I am sure it was a fluke - and I will be super happy with peeing before bath - but we were all pretty amazed. The boys heard my commotion and came running up the steps to celebrate too. She was so happy and clapping herself on the toilet! YEAH EVELYN!!!

You have got to be kidding me. It makes all of the hard work with Gavin pay off.
