Today's weather was overcast and mild, and we had a few inches of snow overnight.  Ian took Kaylee outside for her first sliding adventure on our lawn - we have a small hill on the side of the apartment building that flows down onto the next lot (eg. our grassy field where we have campfires!).

As you can clearly tell, Kaylee LOVES being outside, and she loves sliding!

Here's some movie goodness of her sliding:

Potty Training!

So excited!

Today, Kaylee peed on the potty for the very first time!

Lately, she has been trying to (and successful at it) remove her diaper, mostly if it was full. 

We certainly don't blame her.

I first tried sitting her on the potty a while back and she was completely uninterested.

Lately, I have been taking her into the bathroom with me when I go, so she can understand the mechanics of it.

Today, she ripped her diaper off and we had a bit of a mess to contend with.  So we told her that if she wants to take her diaper off, she needs to sit on the potty.  Tonight, I've done it twice (put her on the potty after removing her diaper) and the second time she sat down, she peed!  Yay!

I made a really big deal out of it, changed her into a pull up instead of a diaper - the pull ups are pink and have princesses on them... and I took out two packs of new undies for Kaylee and showed them to her.  She was livid that I wouldn't put them on her right away, but I told her that they were for when she used the potty all the time.  Then I used clothes pins to hang them all up on the curtain on display so she can see them all the time.

So we'll see how this goes.  I need her to communicate with us for this to be successful though.  :)  But I am hoping...

Yay!  So exciting to see our big girl learning new things!
