Potty Training

We have been working on potty training with Avery pretty hard core for about 2 weeks now, and I am proud to say that I think we've mastered potty training, in the daytime anyway.  She can go tee tee and poo poo on the potty all by herself (meaning going to the bathroom, pulling down her pants, getting on the potty without a stool, going, wiping--for the most part, getting off the potty without a stool, pulling up her panties and pants, flushing, and washing her hands).  This is such a huge help during the day!  Now, if we're in a public restroom, the process is a little different...a little more help from me than when we're at home or someone else's home.  Her babysitter, Mrs B, has told her for a while that when she is potty trained and can go poo poo in the potty, she will get her a fish.  So, the other day, off to Wal Mart they went.  Here is Avery with her new pet fishes (there are 3 of them):
 Giving the fishes kisses....
In case you can't tell, she is very proud!
Now, as for nighttime potty training, we are doing Pull Ups, but I have promised myself that I am only buying the one pack (the original, normal sized pack) of Pull Ups, and then it's on to big girl panties.  She wears panties for her naps and has never had an accident (knock on wood), so I hoping it will be a smooth transition!
