So big!


Our big girl
Originally uploaded by fylliska.

Yesterday was Raia's first day in underwear. She did wonderfully! I was going to wait until she was walking, but she's close, and she's been keeping her diapers dry anyway. There was just one accident out of the whole day, and I say that a little dribble on a linoleum floor is excusable on Day 1 of being a big girl. She stayed dry during naps and during a long time out in the garden. Well, she wasn't exactly dry in the garden, but the wetness came from mud and a tub of water, not anything bad on her part. And even though I put her to bed in a diaper last night, she was dry when she woke up this morning!

That precious child, highlighted by the beauty of natural light--what a photo! She brings us such joy (as do you with your exquisite mothering and the documentation of each step in Raia's and Jaan's development).

We love you all....

Phyllis! You know that this is just amazing to everyone over here! We have kids who are 3 or older who still wear diapers of some sort! I think it's the genius they have gotten from both parents!!! (: Lots of love from the proud Baba!

What a big girl you are Raia!!! Good job Mom for training her well!! ;-)Isn't it so much easier when you start early?! I feel blessed to have had that experience with my little Ukrainians because they were all potty trained so much earlier than the other dc here in America. My family thought I was nuts at first though! :-P

Wow, that is exciting! I know we've talked about potty training before and, well..., we haven't gotten very far...We just don't get it and we don't care if our diaper is wet or even dirty. I guess it adds the extra softness! :) But we are thinking that we should just try the Big People potty to spark some interest.

Thanks for you anwers!!! They were great. As soon as I'll get to it, I'll post my reply, too!
