It finally happened. We were watching a Bear in the Big Blue House video and it was all about using a potty chair. About 2 hours later, Ellie was eating dinner and she said, “poop.” Usually, when she says this she is telling us she went in her diaper. Paula checked and there was nothing there. We asked if she wanted to go sit on her potty chair and she said yes. We went in, placed her on her potty chair and she went poop. Pretty awesome! We were quite proud of her and she was pretty happy with herself. The best part for her was flushing the toilet and waving good-bye. Quite a big day for this 16 month old.
