Potty training is now in full force

For the past week, Carolyn has not worn diapers with the exception of naps, overnight, and times when we're away from the house for more than an hour. Also, so far, only a handful of accidents.

We ask her every 20 minutes or so if she has to go to the potty, and she responds "no" nearly every time, so we force her to go every hour or so. There have been several occasions - and they are increasing - where she runs into the bathroom by herself or tells us she has to go, which is great.

It's actually been a fairly smooth transition - fingers are crossed that it continues. And just a quick reminder of how big Carolyn was the first time we got her to go on the potty nearly a year ago, and how foolish we were thinking that she was going to be potty trained shortly after this.

(How thrilled will she be one day to discover these pictures posted online?)

My hat goes off to you. I am currently potty training my daughter...oh me, oh my!!! It is starting to make me crazy. She won't pee...she waits for that diaper at naps and when we leave the house. I am trying to stay close to home, so I don't need to even use a diaper...In the last 3 weeks of training, she has peed only 2 times in the potty. I would be forever in your debt if you could offer any words of wisdom here. My daugher turns 3 in November. Am I rushing it?
