I know I have not even got to start putting up pictures for pre Christmas, but this was a mind blowing experience to me and I wanted to share before I forget how excited I was.

Today when W got her out of her clothes to change to more going out clothes aka warm outfit, he took off her diaper to change too, so she was butt naked.

She was just running around like usual. (at this time she sometimes pees accidentally on the floor, and I say to her, “Jio, next time  you want to pee, please pee on the potty.”)

She went to sit down on her potty which she had started doing lately, like one of things she likes to do. We don’t tell her to do so, and we did not tell her to do that at all today either.

And W just yelled at me in excitement.

Jio peed in her potty! Without anyone telling her to do anything!

It was amazing to me. And it was another RIE moment to me, that we patiently wait for baby’s development instead of trying to teach or anything. And just like that, she just suddenly did that, all on her decision.

That was amazing enough, but she did it again before bath. We didn’t tell her to do so, but she just walked over to her potty, sat there and peed again.

Wow.

Too bad we’re leaving for Japan tomorrow we can’t continue with the potty she’s used to. But I take it that this mean she is ready to move on from diapers now. We will see. I just wanted to share this incident because it happened so naturally. She might do it again and she might not, but this was amazing to me.

And another Christmas miracle this morning, not as awesome as Jio’s, but I smelled the whole wheat everything bagel toasting in the toaster oven! That’s a huge development, though I have yet to smell anything else since that. But, it’s coming back! It has been 3 months since I smelled things last.
