dancin' in her undies

Our little Annabellesie-boo, pleased as punch to be wearing her pony panties (or, as she says, "poan-eee pan-ees!") It is quite possible that I would let my child wear nothing but her panties all day long, she is just that cute. Seriously, I could probably eat her little tummy and tushie for dessert. Munch, munch.



She's done such an excellent job with potty training. It really only took a few days, for which I am so grateful. Potty training is probably one of my all-time least favorite things about parenting, but it makes all the difference in the world if they are really ready-- and Annabelle was. It's been over a week now since we've had an accident!! Woohoo! I think that is due partly to the fact that she really does get it, and partly to the fact that this girl can HOLD it. Seriously. Sometimes I don't understand how one tiny little 22-pound two-year old with a bladder the size of a plum (or something like that) can retain so many bodily fluids. It's amazing.
Rejoice with me, people: this is the first time in over FOUR AND A HALF YEARS that I have not had diapers to change!! Or buy, for that matter of fact. Based on those facts alone, this post should really be accompanied by a rousing rendition of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.

Yay, go Annabelle!

OK, but if you have baby fever and one of the goals for this year is to allieviate baby fever won't you be back to square one in the diaper department?

Oh, and she is pretty cute! Yay for no accidents!

Okay, she is the most adorable little thing on the planet. I love her blonde curls!

That's great that it didn't take her long (at all!) to get the hang of the big girl potty. Yay for no diapers!

Yes, you are right about that, Lisa, good point. Honestly, I would be 100% willing and ready to get back into diapers asap for the sake of a baby... however, that doesn't mean I won't enjoy this break in the meanwhile! :)

Um..how cute is that kid?!

I must say, newborn diapers are way better than big kid diapers (peeeww)...well except for the explosive kind. The break will be nice I'm sure :)

How were you SURE that she was ready? Just wondering when I should start this process.

Sarah Marie said...
