Potty Training 2.0

We are at it again. I really want to get this girl potty trained before her 3rd (yes, third) birthday and have it down to a science before baby sister gets here (only 103 more days!!!).
This time, her incentive is a birthday party with her friends. We started again on Friday and her birthday was exactly 3 weeks away. I told her that if she fills up all three weeks of her potty charts that she could have her birthday party. That was enough to get her going. Friday was a slow potty day, but we have since realized that Addison does better when she doesn't have a diaper or pull up on. So on Saturday we just stayed home all day and let Addison run around with nothing but sweatpants on. She did so great! Both her dad and I are so proud of her! She even woke up Saturday night and told her dad that she needed to go pee pee in the potty.
Today, Addison went to the potty and did her #2 business all by herself. While I was in the bathroom helping her get cleaned up I was about to tell her how proud I was of her when she looked at me and said "I know, your so proud of me!" What a funny girl! I am absolutely so proud of her!!!
Also, today we went to all 3 hours of church (both Randy and I were anticipating the worst) and she did fantastic! No accidents whatsoever. She even whispered to Randy during sacrament that she needed to go potty.

Since I have taken this picture, she has added two more stars onto Sunday!

Great! that is how my nephew got potty trained. My sister just finally put him in underwear and said sink or swim. That however did not work for my girls.

Yay Addi! I totally agree with not having underwear or a pullup on. That's what helped Brianna the most, I think. Maybe it helps them remember there's nothing to catch any accidents!
