Potty Training: WIN!

It's only been a few days and I might be jinxing it but Eggy is totally rocking at peeing on the potty.

Saturday night - Eggy's hanging out diaperless.  I forget why she wasn't wearing a diaper.  It's probably because Eggy appah had just gotten rid of her soiled diaper and decided not to put a new one on her.  If it had been me, I would have just put a new diaper on.  As it was, I was constantly watching Eggy, telling her not to sit on the sofa or the rug; to sit on her Pororo mat instead.  If she had an accident, it would have been a lot easier to clean the mat.  Anyway, after some time, Eggy says, "Eggy shi-shi," goes and sits down on the potty and PEES!  She did it!  All on her own.  We didn't even have to say anything.  So after she peed, I gave her a gummi bear.  About ten minutes later, she says she has to pee again and she sits on the potty again!  So of course, I give her another gummi bear.  Eggy does this whole little bit of pee-gets a gummi bear routine another two times and that's when I realize my baby is an evil genius.  Okay, not evil but definitely sneaky.  Eggy was letting out her pee a little bit at a time so she could get the maximum amount of gummi bears.  She was totally working the system!  So I told her, "No more.  Make one big peepee.  Let it all out."  At the same time, I was pretty impressed with her bladder control.  It wasn't too long ago where she'd only tell us "pee pee" about half a second before she had pee running down her leg.
Sunday - In the morning, we just hung out at home and Eggy peed in the potty every. single. time.  Not one accident!  One time, she came up to me, told me she had to go, and managed to hold it until we got to the potty.  I still put a diaper on her for her nap though.  In the afternoon, we went to the hubby's uncle's house for his baby boy's one month so Eggy wore a diaper there too.  But when we got back home, she peed in the potty again before her bath.
Today - This morning, I asked Eggy if she wanted to go potty and she said no.  I think she might have even peed in the diaper right before I asked her.  But after a couple minutes, she said she had to go and I put her on the toilet and she peed.  And when we got to my mom's house (I had work), Eggy peed again two more times.  This time, she got m&m's.  Again, no accidents today!  She did poop in her diaper today (right after she woke up from her nap) so she hasn't pooped in the potty yet.

But isn't she doing awesome?  We are so proud.  It's like a switch turned on and she just gets it now.  I'm sure the reward of the candy helps a lot but we used to try bribing her before and she would still refuse.  I wish I could take credit for how well Eggy's doing but I have no idea what changed.  All these months of trying to get her to use the potty and one day, Eggy just decides that she's ready, I guess.  Maybe she was getting tired of wearing a diaper since the weather's been so hot?  It can't be comfortable wearing that.  Whatever it is, I'm pretty excited.  And she looks so cute in her panties (although she seems to prefer being butt nekkid).

that's so wonderful!! I look forward to day that W can wipe his own butt. You're lucky in this sense that Eggy doesn't have a "hose" to spray the walls with. Sigh. Go Eggy! Go Eggy!! Let's hang out at South Coast soon yeah? or a park on a cooler day.
