I gotta go potty weekend

Gabbie was sick with belly problems all weekend and it was not fun. We have noticed her belly has been hard and bloated. He bowel movements have been a bit odd (trust me you don't want the details.) Friday night around 10:00 she had diarrhea and she didn't go back to her bed until 12:45 and asleep until around the 1:30am. She was up promptly at 6:30am. It was not fun and we were all tired Saturday. She took a short nap only to be woke up by yet again more diarrhea. She is better today thankfully.

Now for the good news. Potty training is going quite well! Even with the terrible stomach problems she went every time (which was a whole lot) in the potty except for the 2 times in her diaper while in bed! That was quite impressive and quite appreciated by mommy and daddy! She is doing so good in her big girl underwear!!! The only bummer is last night at 11:30 she started saying "I gotta go potty mommy" over and over again so I got up, took her to the potty, she went tinkle, and back to bed. While I really appreciate her telling me, she had a diaper on, and I would have appreciated sleep more!!! Oh well as my friends said today, I can't have it both ways! We are restricting her right before bedtime drink so hopefully she will not wake us up to go tonight.

Now for some pictures. Even though she didn't feel good she managed to be playful and smiley.

It was a tutu weekend. She literally wore this thing all weekend. When she puts it in she spins and spins.

The tutu gives her attitude (not that it is needed)

We celebrated Joe's birthday at Grandma's house Saturday night and of course she had to wear the tutu there. She pranced around that house all night full of tutu-tude. I know what you are thinking. Nice outfit, right!!!

Of course she wouldn't cooperate for even 1 picture with Joe. Little stinker!

Instead of giving Joe a card with money in it my mom always gets him a can of ready whip, wraps it, and tapes money to it. Joe loves ready whip. Guess who else does:)
GG and Gabbie. GG had surgery on her feet about two weeks ago and Gabbie is so great with her. She is gentle and lovable. She just hopped right up into GG's chair and cuddled. She always knows how to make people feel better.

Today Gabbie mixed her Tinkerbell PJ's with basketball, and her tutu. What a combo!

She's got mad basketball skills! She loves to dunk.

WOW!!! Great job with the potty, even at night. I would say she is trained--I am jealouse.

Love the tu-tu!! Such a girl.

What a great job with the potty. I'm so sorry she's not felt well. LOve the basketball shots! Way to go Gabbie :-)

This may not be the best advise, but I told Eliza (who was also screaming in the middle of the night because she had to potty) that during the night if she has to go pee-pee it is okay because she has a pull up on. It has not affected her training at all. She has a bladder of steel and after a few nights she wakes up dry every day. (But I was getting exhausted from the middle of the night bathroom trips)
