Hard to Believe

Well, yesterday, Trinity continued her current trend, but she surprised me when she started her 'fit' in the car.

On the way to daycare, she started grunting and acting really anxious. She was even trying to bounce up and down in her car seat and she was reaching out towards me. I told her to try to hold on and I would take her to the bathroom as soon as we got to daycare. Sure enough, I headed in with her and went straight to the bathroom; that was what she wanted.

I finally got a minute to talk to one of the workers this afternoon, and she really didn't believe me when I told her she was already starting to show interest. I described how she's been letting me know just so they might try to watch for the same signs. We'll see how that goes.

Nonetheless, I rearranged baby gates this afternoon to make the bathrooms more accessible, and we'll just continue trying to encourage her to let us know. Chris and I are still in a state of disbelief over this right now, but we are excited and happy about it, too.

Ready for Potty Training?

Until yesterday, I thought the past couple of weekends was just a fluke. Now, I think I'm wrong.

For the past few weekends, Trinity has come to me, at least once a day, to try to tell me she needs to go to the bathroom. Except for yesterday morning, we were always downstairs, and she would come over and act kind of whiny and want me to pick her up. When I would pick her up, she would start bouncing up and down and grunting. The first time I didn't have a clue what she wanted. On a whim, I tried bringing her to the bathroom. As soon as I sat her on the toilet she went. The following weekend a very similar situation took place.

Yesterday morning was different... Chris and I were in our room getting ready for church, and we were letting Trinity run around and play. Next thing I know, she teetered into our bathroom and started banging on the toilet lid. I decided to give it a try, and sure enough she had to go.

Hey, all of this still may be coincidences with timing. However, after this has happened three weekends in a row, I'm starting to question whether it's a fluke or not. I know she's not ready to start learning how to control it, and she's not at a point where she's coming to me while she's really hard at play. But, I guess I'll be thankful that it looks like she's already starting to show signs of being interested.
