I've been a busy girl!

First off, potty training update.  DD is doing great!  She has an accident every once in awhile but for all intents and purposes she is potty trained!!  We still use pull-ups at night but she usually only wets about once a week, not bad for an 18 1/2-month-old.

I have been having a great time picking out paint colors for K's house.  He is excited that the house is finally getting some character after living there for almost 3 years...typical bachelor :)  No, he works so much that there isn't much time for him to worry about home decor.  I love it though so I'm glad I get the opportunity.  Things are going really well with us too.  He is such a sweet, caring, and honest guy and he is great with DD.  I seem to get way more accomplished when I am with him...or just at his place :)

I finally cooked up a batch of Mom's Super Laundry Sauce tonight.  It is separating right now and I can whip it when I get up at 2am to go to work.  I really hope it works well and I can't wait to try it.  I'm pretty sure K will have a load of greasy, dirty work clothes that I can try it out on tomorrow or Friday :)

I also started the No Poo (no shampoo) thing tonight.  My hair feels so clean, soft, and light right now!  I will post updates but I think I'm really going to like this :)

Both of the above ideas were found through Pinterest.  I am completely addicted!  I have even tried quite a few of the things I have found there...although I have many, many more things pinned that I need to try.

But now I need to go to bed since it is almost 11pm and I need to get up at 2am!!

Potty training

DD is now 15 months old and has been pooping on the toilet since last November.  I decided it was time to potty train her.  We started 4 days ago and she is doing quite well.  The first day we went through about 15 pairs of pants but she has gotten better each day.  So far today we are only on our second pair and it is 2:00 in the afternoon.

I was going to trying training pants but I couldn't find any that would fit her.  She weighs about 21 lbs. right now and the smallest training pants I could find start at 29 lbs.  I decided we would go straight to the underwear (which weren't too easy to find in her size either).  I figured, what is the difference between washing pants versus cloth diapers?  Also, she fits into much smaller pants without the bulky diaper so we have lots of pants.  She even fits into some 6-9 month sized pants!  I had her in 18 month size (and some 24 month) with the diapers on.

At home she sits on the normal toilet with a padded toddler seat and at my grandma's house she has a potty chair or she uses the travel potty seat on the toilet.  I've been giving her stickers each time she goes....there are stickers everywhere, lol.  I have been meaning to read some tips and tricks on potty training but I've been too busy and we seem to be doing pretty well.  Hopefully we won't have to deal with diapers at all pretty soon!
