I should probably change the name of this blog for the time being to Poop Chronicles, because I can see this subject coming up A LOT before Ashlyn is potty trained. We received her potty chair in the mail tonight. Ashlyn was so excited to have her very own potty that she immediately wanted her diaper off. She sat down in the living room and made her first deposit, getting up every couple of moments to check her progress. Everything didn't quite make it where it was supposed to go, but she was SO PROUD of herself.
In more poop news, about 1/2 an hour later, Ashlyn picked up a piece of poop in the yard. At some point before then, she had also stepped in it. Lovely subject, I know. But, now we have helped to meet one of our loftier goals as parents, because Ashlyn will be so embarrassed when everyone knows these stories as a teen. Hee.
