Potty Training

My little girl decided 2 weeks ago that it was time to start potty training. She came to me & stated proudly "Potty" then headed for the bathroom. To my surprise when I put her on the toilet she actually went! She has now gone at least once everyday since then. I will be more on top of it when I'm not so pregnant but it is a great start to only having one in diapers, Yay.

About Me...

My name is Shannon. I was born Dec. 3, 1984 in Napa, CA. I have 1 older sister Stacey & 1 younger brother Owen. I also have 4 step siblings...2 sisters; 1 younger & 1 older & 2 brothers; both older. I was in church by the time I was 2 days old. I am a Baptist Christian. I moved to Port Orchard the middle of Sept. 1995 when I was 10 years old. Since then we have attended Bible Baptist Church, then First Baptist & back to Bible Baptist where we have been since 1996. I went to East Port Orchard Elementery School for 5th & 6th grade, with the same teacher both years. I then went to Marcus Whitman followed by the one & only High School in Port Orchard, South Kitsap, where I graduated in June 2003. I accepted Christ into my heart Nov. 9, 2001 while in Portland, Oregon for the Northwest Youth Conference. I teach a 2 & 3 year olds class, Hot Tots, during Jr. Church every Sunday since 2000, I was the helper before that. I met my husband, Richard, in Sept 2004 at a golf course. It didn't take us long to realize we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. We were engaged Dec. 8, 2004. We were then married Aug. 25, 2005. We had no intention of starting a family immediately, however God had other plans for us. We were blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Emily Leilani on Nov. 22, 2006. I am now a stay at home mom raising my wonderful & extrememly smart little girl Emy. I love the joys of being a mommy & watching my little one learn new things everyday. Richard works for Pierce County. As of Feb. 24, 2008 we are expecting another little bundle of joy, but this time a boy. I am also a proud aunt to my sisters 17 month old son Austyn & another one on the way.
